Ok so I really would like to get a friend for Lilly. But I don't want to buy one of the probably diseased rats from Petco. I mean I got Lilly from their but she was a rehabilitated adoptee from someones home. Does anyone know of a breeder or a decent place to get rats from in Southern California? Preferably in the Ventura county area? I have looked all over and can't find anywhere.

There are quite a few rat/small animal rescues in CA. There's tons of ratties that need homes in CA. :) *points to Darksong's link*

Thanks! Those links were super helpful. I found three places that aren't too terribly far from where I live. I am probably going to check them out. WOO! Exciting!

Yay! Don't forget - Most rescues have a network of people to transport. I know they're REALLY good about it in CA. Good luck in your search!
what do you mean network to transport?

Volunteers that will assist in getting rats from the rescue to new homes.
ohhh ok I get it now. Well there is one breeder I might try and I wouldn't mind driving out myself. I couldn't really find any rescues in my area.

You could also just try petfinder. Specify small and furry, and rat, and see who's closest! Sometimes regular shelters will get rats in, and they often stay there for quite some time, the poor dears...

My sister is out in Davis, CA I don't remeber where she got them but I can ask her, if you want me to?
Hahah thanks I appreciate the thought but Davis is about

389 mi – about 5 hours 58 mins

from where I live lol

Just a bit to far for me. And I would feel bad having a rat in a carrier for that long.

hmm and I tried petfinder but the results come up no where near me :(...ait! Im looking there is a place an hour from me. hmmm better give the site a second look over
