Registered Ratteries

 

Although the AusRFS is a rescue focused organisation, we do maintain a register of ethical, responsible breeders. By maintaining the registry, we support these breeders who operate in the most ethical, professional manner, and allows us to offer a recommended alternative when appropriate rescues aren't available or are not an option. AusRFS registered breeders liaise closely with our Rescue Service, and where possible, plan their litters for times when our rescue numbers are low. 

 

Our Registered breeders have passed the society’s comprehensive registration process, which involves a detailed application, interview, written test and home inspection followed by annual inspection and review.

 

These breeders adhere to the AusRFS Breeders Code of Conduct. They follow carefully planned breeding programs, focussing on health and temperament, they don’t mass breed or sell indiscriminately. Babies are born and raised in the breeder’s home, and are handled from birth in order to provide well socialised and healthy pets to loving homes.

Please Note
Because of the large number of rats currently available for adoption from the AusRFS Rescue Service, all of our Registered Breeders have stopped breeding. 
 
We thank our breeders for their support and responsible actions.

As a club we don't believe in bringing more rats into the world when there are so many perfectly lovely rescues waiting for their forever homes. 

We encourage all potential owners to consider adopting from our Rescue Service - click HERE for more information.
