Hey everyone, I'm really looking to get two rats sometime soon. I have a brand new cage on the way and would be absolutely ecstatic if I could find two babies this weekend. This is my first foray into the world of rat ownership and I have been waiting months to move into this new apartment and the time has finally come! Any advice on breeders in my area (Boston) or just a person with rats available would be terrific. I'm desperately trying to avoid having to buy rats from a pet store. Thanks!

I don't have a car so I would prefer something within reach of public transportation, but I could manage to get to most places within a reasonable distance of the city if necessary.

Check petfinder.com.

In a city as big as Boston I'm sure there are a couple rescues and the humane society likely has a couple too, meaning you'll have plenty of choices. :)

Thanks for the advice. The nearest ones on PetFinder are in New Hampshire, which is way out of my range.

Maybe you can try going to google, typing in your town and then "rodent rescues" and see if anything pops up?

Forensic - I've been to the humane society (it's a fantastic facility) and the two siamese have been adopted. The hooded...well, I really want babies (they're a year old), but if I don't find any soon I may go adopt those two cuties.

Nazarath - Kim's Ark Rescue will deliver rescue rats to my area and they are well renowned. Besides them, there aren't too many rescues near me. I am really hoping to get some new babies, though. I have been in contact with Kim's, they are currently processing my adoption application.

Thanks for all the advice.

I have a friend in Maine who has taken in some babies from two litters. She has two adorable 9 week old Pew's who are rex left. They will be neutered Friday. I had one of their littermates at my house last week and he was a friendly playful doll :) Transportation can be arranged :)
