First I wanna say thank you to everyone who was so understanding about my birthday vacation and while I was sick with Covid! I appreciate...
High Quality Pet Rats
DesertRose Rattery who aim to breed high quality rats. Healthy, sociable, and just downright cute!
We know rats are incredibly clever and affectionate creatures and want to produce pets that people can love as much as we do.
Quality-Bred Fancy Rats
We here at DesertRose strive to produce the best pet rats possible.
Top priorities for our rats include health, temperament, and desirable pet-like qualities (see: cuteness).
We are also registered with AFRMA ( American Fancy Rat and Mouse association. )
We aim to spread our love and affection for these clever and highly affectionate creatures by taking the fancy rat to all-new levels of lovability.
DesertRose has been creating healthy, happy, high-quality pet rats since 2019. In addition to our pet-quality rat breeding, DesertRose accepts surrenders by owners whenever we can. We offer this service to keep the rats safe and cared for during the search for their permanent home. Potential owners of surrendered rats undergo the same thorough vetting process as potential owners of our bred rats. Your rat(s) will find a loving home.
Critically, we treat our rats ethically and respectfully. Finding the right pairings to create rats with idealized features (size, coat, shape) is a process that takes much time and dedication over many generations. However, this is a natural and delicate process that we treat with the utmost patience and respect. When breeding our rats, we ultimately aim for the betterment of their species above all else.
We assure that our rats are well-socialized to both humans and other rats. For this purpose, we mandate that our rats receive homes in bonded pairs to promote their quality of life and ease of sociability.
Q: How did all of this start?
A: This all began with a woman named Meghan (me) and her rat, Gerald. Gerald was a blue variegated rex dumbo, marten carrying rat who started a long lineage of dumbo rex marten rats and the DesertRose Rattery.
