Your rats will come with a detailed contract as well as a "How To Litter Train" info paper. Hamsters come with just a contract.

Contract for Rats  

Thank you for adopting from White Wolf Rattery & Hamstery (WWR&H). My rats come with the guarantee that your new animals will be free from genetic health problems until they reach a year old. Although unlikely, if you find your new rats to have a genetic health concern before reaching a year old, your options are:

  • If the animal has an internal abnormality determined by a vet that impairs his/her quality of life, I will offer a full or partial refund for the animal with proof of condition.
  • For animals with sudden and unexplained death, I will require a clear video of the rat’s body. If I feel the death occurred out of negligence or injury, I will not offer a refund or replacement. If I feel the death was not caused by human error or another animal in the house, I will offer a full refund. A necropsy by an exotic vet may be required.

If a respiratory illness presents itself within the one week after the take home date:

  • I can walk you through the treatment when using fish mox, a humidifier, baytril, etc. If symptoms persist and you’re unable to cure the animal(s) with home based methods, visit an exotic vet and I will offer a refund for the sick animal(s). You must have proof of vet visit and a written statement from the vet on the condition of the sick animal(s).
  • If an illness other than URI happens it is not covered by the illness guarantee. The guarantee is only for lung related illness (upper respiratory infections).

All guarantees are VOID if proper quarantine is not preformed. Proper quarantine is a bare minimum of three weeks separation from any other rats in the household.

Temperament is also guaranteed. If your rat ends up biting people I will offer a full or partial refund with proof of the temperament issue. To my best knowledge, all rats adopted out of my Rattery have sound temperaments.

Messages are recorded and saved. If you have an issue and fail to work with me within the terms of this contract, you will not be able to adopt from WWR&H again. If you write a negative review as a result, I will comment on it the entire conversation we had in screen shots. I must protect my reputation and slander by an unreasonable adopter will not be tolerated. Slander may result in legal action.

Genetic health problems include:

-Heart condition (heart murmur, deformed heart, heart attack not caused by maltreatment)

-Stroke

-Lung deformity

-Tumors

-Chronic blindness (not caused by injury. Involves clouding of the eyes)

-Deafness (not caused by ear infection)

-Liver shunt

-Kidney disease

-Megacolon (Covered until 12 weeks old)

-Other

If a genetic health concern/condition that is not on this list arises before the guarantee ends, please message me and I will determine if it falls under “other.” Megacolon is covered until the animal is twelve weeks old. If megacolon occurs, I will offer a full refund once an exotic vet confirms the condition or you prove the condition to me with strong video evidence. If a genetic health concern/condition arises at any point in the animal’s life, please let me know so that I can breed any genetic problem out of my lines as best as possible. WWR&H is not responsible for sick animals that resulted from poor care by the owner. This includes poor diet, improper housing, improper bedding, and unsanitary living conditions. New owners understand they take full responsibility of the animal once adopted and taken out of WWR&H. This includes vet bills. This contract, regarding genetics, is VOID if the adopter feeds a poor quality commercial rat food such as rat seed mixes. This contract, regarding guaranteed health until 1 week after adoption, is VOID if the new owner decides to spay/neuter within the one week after take home, fails to provide proper well-ventilated housing, fails to provide cleans cages, fails to provide proper bedding, or abuses the animal(s) physically or mentally.

Returning rats is approved on a case by case basis. If you need to rehome your rats, please offer them to me first. If your healthy, good natured rats are returned to me due to your own personal reasons, a refund will not be given. If returned, their full set up may need to be provided and donated.

Breeding rights:
