I am a small professional hobby rat breeder located in SW Denver Colorado near Alameda and I-25.
I breed because I love, love, love what I do, my job is to bring love into people's homes. And it's a wonderful positive way to live my life. Rats are fantastic little people and I love to share that with others. They are smart, clean, can learn tricks like a dog, yet litter train like a cat. I love the antics of the rat as they are such little hams. They get so excited to see you and wrestle, play and bounce around when you come to their cage. I also love breeding because of the rat community. I love the people in it and I enjoy being around them. The people are fun, the rats are adorable and I love the camaraderie.
None of my rats are pet shop animals, they are all heavily, pedigreed and many of my lines are imported from the best lines you can find. And I can verify the health of all the animals in their pedigrees. As I am very meticulous about record keeping. I demand the same from the breeders I adopt from. My rats are bred for health, longevity and temperament. And have an almost tumor free reputation. Most of my rats live from 3-4 years which is easily verifiable. All of my rats are color bred & line bred. It takes me weeks or months of planning before I place each pair together so I can be sure of the best outcome.
As a professional breeder, which I am very serious about, I am always determined to provide the highest quality experience for my adopters. I do not breed or keep rats for a profit, and I do not do it in dingy conditions. Everything I do is with the highest respect for the animals I care for. From the caging, toys and food I feed, to the respect I show them with the high quality photos I take. I have pictures in National Geographic as well as Cengage Learning publications to prove my insistence of quality and excellence. And to add to my portfolio of photography skills. So when you adopt from me you know that every facet of care I give these animals is the best you can get. I don't play around with a hobby in the back yard, these animals are in pristine conditions in my home, eating the organic foods I eat, and getting love from me daily. Animals deserve every bit of respect they can get, after all they have saved me in every way that a human can be saved. I could not do it without them.
Currently I am the only quality rattery in Colorado. And I am one of the oldest ratteries in the country. But please do not be mistaken into thinking I am a store that adopts to everyone that asks. I do not. Since I'm a small breeder and my rats are in high demand, this affords me the ability to be very picky about who adopts my rats. Furthermore, I rigorously screen each adopter and heavily contract each and every one of them. This way I know my rats will be cared for in a respectful and ethical manner. Because of this I do turn down quite a few potential adopters, if I see they do not meet my high standards of care. My adopters need to impress me before I adopt to them, its as simple as that. I do appreciate my adopters and I couldn't breed without them, but I do breed for myself and to reach my own goals. I cannot however keep all the babies I produce, which is where you can benefit from my breeding's.
