If you wish to adopt a rat from PYMA Rattery, you've landed in the right place. This is where you should begin. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, but i've tried to lay out all of my policies on this page.
You must fill out an ADOPTION APPLICATION. I reserve the right to refuse adoption for any reason, but nine times out of ten I will not refuse before making suggestions as to how you can be accepted. You must provide proper housing and diet. At this time I DO NOT SHIP - but I will begin offering shipping in 2017 (after a big move is completed and we are all settled). You must be able to pick up your rats unless you are adopting many rats and are prepared to spend the money on shipment. Please do not reserve rats unless you will be able to arrange proper transport.
I will drive to meet within reason up to 30 miles. Any additional mileage must be arranged upon RESERVATION of the rats and may incur a fee. I will drive up to 2 hours, but I will expect to be compensated for my time and gas. I much prefer the rats be picked up directly from me, as nearest to my home as possible.
Feel free to email me directly for a copy/paste or docx version of the application.
PLEASE EMAIL PYMA RATS @ YAHOO DOT COM (no spaces) IF YOU DO NOT GET A RESPONSE! I am working on a docx version of the application as well as a version that can be copied/pasted. This form is not working properly most of the time.
Please note - you will not be able to adopt a PYMA rat without filling out the above application, unless you have adopted from Pyma, or Pymatuning Valley Rattery, in the past. If you are a new breeder, please be willing to provide at least two breeder references, or be willing to discuss mentoring by myself or another breeder. Also, specifying a specific type, litter, or available rat in the above application does not guarantee the availability of that rat, that particular type, or a rat from that particular litter. Please understand that nothing is ever certain in the rat breeding world and there may be others ahead of you on the waiting list, as it is first come, first serve. Thank you and happy bruxing!
