Hello, and welcome to Whispering Grove Rattery!
We are a member of AFRMA (American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association) and a pedigree Rattery based in the Stone Mountain, Georgia area. We originally opened to the public in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2015, although we have been handling, raising, and breeding rats since 2010. We reopened to the public in 2018 after taking a short break to relocate to the East Coast and became an AFRMA Rattery in June of 2019.
We take a lot of pride in the work we put into our lines, and we ensure that every house bred rat is healthy and well socialized before it leaves our hands. Our rats are temperament tested and we guarantee that no rat adopted out of our Rattery will leave skittish, aggressive, or sick at the time of adoption.
More than breeders, we are also pet owners. We love our rats dearly - they are all a part of our family. We take the utmost care possible when selecting homes for our babies to go to and the safety and well being of all of our babies comes before absolutely anything else. This is not just a hobby for us - I like to call it a way of life. We do not breed rats with a monetary goal in mind. Rather, our main goal with breeding is to first ensure the betterment of the species and nothing else. We are very proud of the quality of our rats and they are improving with every new generation.
We also have a passion for education. We love helping new pet owners, experienced pet owners, and breeders develop better practices when caring for / breeding their rats. We are advocates for this species, and also seek to eliminate the general fear and ignorance the general public have for these absolutely amazing animals. We also work to help new breeders learn the facts - the right facts. We discourage backyard and mass breeding and always try to help where we can to keep the population from being saturated with sick, or aggressive, rats.
As well as our rats, we are known for our quality customer experience. We strive to offer the best customer service of any Rattery in the United States and offer a lifetime support guarantee. This means that we make ourselves available to chat and offer support before, during, and after the adoption process to answer any questions you may have regarding the care, husbandry, and well being of your rats.
All of our general adoption, availability, and pricing information can be found on this site. We also have an educational center designed to help new pet owners learn how to give the best care possible to their new family members, with new articles being written all the time. For information on our breeding practices and history, please view our "History, Goals, and Ethics" page. For further information or questions, please feel free to reach out to us any time via our contact page.
If you are looking to adopt with us, please check out our Adoption Process and FAQ page prior to applying with us to ensure that any questions you have are answered prior to starting the adoption process. As always, we are more than happy to answer any questions that were not located on those pages.
Thank you for your interest in our Rattery, we hope to hear from you soon!
