PRICING: Please email info@whitewolfrattery.com for full current rat price list. Pricing starts at $20 per baby rat and goes up from there depending on bloodline. Regular line pricing:

  • Black & Agouti line: $20 (Not always listed, please inquire)

  • Fawn Rex line: $45-55

Other higher end lines are available. Please inquire for complete bloodline price list. 

Babies must leave in pairs. Adults can be adopted as singles as long as client provides proof they already own other rats BUT there is a $10 added fee for rats being reserved alone. This is to encourage people to reserve in same sex pairs for adults as well.

Rats are sold as pet only unless otherwise discussed.
 
If you cannot pick up your rats the following weekend after I receive your deposit, I will charge a "holding fee" which will be an additional $10 for late pickup. This holding fee will increase as more time is required for me to hold them for delayed pickup. If you fail to pick up your rats after two weeks then I will drop the sale and you will lose your deposit. Late pickup may not always be possible.
 
All clients MUST provide some sort of official ID during the visit, preferably a drivers license. Other accepted forms of identification are a learners permit, a college ID card, an official general state ID, or an official work ID card. This ensures you are who you say you are!
 
Appointments for pick up are usually scheduled right after you reserve of babies. You will get a full hour time-slot for picking up your rats. This means that if you show up exactly at the start of the hour, you'll have 50 minutes with me for greeting, signing the contract, meeting your new babies, buying products if you wish, and asking any questions you may have. You do not need to stay the full 50 minutes, but you're more than welcome to as long as you talk to me! Please do your best to be on time. If you arrive too early, text me and I will let you know if you can come in early.
 
Deposits will start being accepted for babies once they are at least 5 weeks old. Deposits are about 50% of the rat’s final cost and are are nonrefundable. Deposits must be sent by paypal through the “family and friends” option. On the day you come to pick up your rats, please bring the full amount (deposit price + remaining balance) in cash. I will then refund your paypal payment! For example, if you deposited $30 on two babies with paypal, on pick up day bring the full $60 (minus wait list fee if you were on the list, so technically only $50 would be due) in cash and I will then give you a refund on paypal.  The paypal payment acts as a place holder. If you back out of the adoption, the paypal deposit is nonrefundable. There are no exceptions allowed to this.
 
Wait list: SKIP if there is no wait list with rats currently available. The wait-list for babies is a structured list of waiting clients that allows higher people on the list priority over lower clients and new inquiries. Adults are sold first come first serve to approved homes. Sometimes there is no one on the wait list for babies! Signing up for the wait list for babies requires clients to provide a $10 "wait list fee" which is credited toward the final cost of your rats. Wait list fees are paid by paypal and are nonrefundable. Baby animals will always be listed Saturday mornings, but reserving will not officially start until 7pm. If there is a wait list, I will send out a warning email to clients on on Wednesday stating that rats will be listed that coming Saturday. If there is no wait list, then rats will be available first come first serve. For the wait list, you MUST be around on the Saturdays rats are listed. Clients on the wait list are responsible for contacting me within the day by email (which states their choices) by no later than 6pm. In your email, provide your first picks to last picks in number order. Also include rats you don't want at all if there are any you're not open to. An example of what your email should look like is below. If you want a video of the listed rats, please text my cell number before 6pm (631-561-7430). At 7pm, I will send out a group email to the people who provided their ordered choices. The email will state which rats will be available to you. If your deposit is not provided by 8pm that night or I don't hear from you at all, you will lose your priority and the rest of the email/wait-list will be allowed to reserve the rats promised to you and new inquires will also be allowed to reserve them. I know this sounds complicated, but it's actually very simple! When people provide their picks in number order from most desired to least desired, I will then match people to rats based on where they are on the wait list and what the person before them wants. Not responding during reserving day will result in wait-list probation. If you don't email me within the next 7 days, you'll be removed from the wait- list which means losing the $10 list sign up fee. Checking your email frequently is very important once you are on my email/wait list. 
 
If you're on the wait list and babies are available to you, here is what your email should look like when submitted what animals you want:
 
SKIP if there is no wait list and there are babies currently available. "Hi. My picks are in order shown below. I want two rats still and I would prefer Bella and Kim mostly, but I am happy with the other girls too! I would prefer not to get Ari/Melanie, but I will take one of them if one is paired with one of my 5 choices. If only Ari and Melanie are what is left for me I will wait until the next litter! I do not want Daisy at all.
 
1) Bella
2) Kim
3) Luna
4) Amy
5) Lily
 
I look forward to hearing how it works out!"
.
The more flexible and open you are, the more likely you'll get rats from the available litter(s). If you're first on the wait list, you are guaranteed to get your favorites.
 

Important info for Hamsters

My hamsters are bred for temperament and health! They are bred for genetic temperament and my hamsters are also socialized after I have my picks for keepers so that they are prepared for daily handling by their new owners.

SKIP if there is no wait list and hamsters are currently available. If there is no wait list and there are hamsters currently available you do not need to sign up for the wait list, but an application will still be required. The wait-list is a structured list of waiting clients that allows higher people on the list priority over lower clients and new inquiries. Signing up for the wait list requires clients to provide a $10 "wait list fee" which is credited toward the final cost of your hamster. Wait list fees are paid by paypal and are nonrefundable. Animals will always be listed Saturday mornings, but reserving will not officially start until 7pm. I will send out a warning email to clients on either Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday stating that hamsters will be listed that Saturday. You MUST be around on the Saturdays hamsters are listed. Clients are responsible for contacting me within the day by email (which states their choice) by no later than 6pm. In your email, provide your first pick to last pick in number order. Also include any hamsters/groups you don't want at all if there are any you're not open to. An example of what your email should look like is below. If you want a video of the listed hamsters, please text my cell number before 6pm (631-561-7430). At 7pm, I will send out a group email to the people who provided their ordered choices. The email will state which hamster group will be available to you. (How to calculate the deposit due is stated below.) I'll provide directions on how to send the deposit. If your deposit is not provided by 8pm that night or I don't hear from you at all, you will lose your priority and the rest of the wait-list will be allowed to reserve the hamster promised to you and new inquires will also be allowed to reserve him/her. I know this sounds complicated, but it's actually very simple! When people provide their pick in number order from most desired to least desired, I will then match people to a hamster/group based on where they are on the wait list and what the client wants. Those higher on the list get priority over lower people. Not responding during reserving day will result in wait-list probation. If you don't email me within the next 72 hours, you'll be removed from the wait- list which means losing the $10 list sign up fee. Checking your email frequently is very important once you are on my email/wait list. The benefit of signing up for the list is that you're directly alerted to a litter being posted soon, you are in priority over those not on the email list, the application process is already out of the way, and the higher up on the email list you are the more likely you'll get your first picks. Signing up for the wait list is HIGHLY recommended! A pickup time on the designated pick up day will be scheduled once a deposit is received. If you are getting a hamster from a "group" it means you are reserving from babies in the litter who are grouped by color and sex. I cannot tat mark hamsters so reserving them can be a little more difficult. Hamsters of certain colors are grouped together for "reserving-spots." In other words, if you want a hamster from a color group, you would reserve one of the hamsters and pick the baby out from that color-group on pickup day. Those who have the last appointment for getting from the color group will get the last baby from the group. If you want me to clarify what I mean by this I am happy to further explain it by email.
.
SKIP if there is no wait list and hamsters are currently available. When I have a hamster litter available to you and it's time for reservations, here is what your email should look like:
 
"Hi. I would like jackson or one of the two babies from the black banded short hair group mostly, but I am happy with a baby from any of the following:
 
1) Jackson (long haired black banded)
2) Mike & Sam (black banded short hair group)
3) Samson (short haired golden banded)
4) Nixon (short haired black)
5) Benny & Lenny & Kyle (beige banded long hair group)
 
I look forward to hearing which hamster/group I am matched to!"
.
The more flexible and open you are, the more likely you'll get a hamster from the available litter(s). If you're first on the wait list, you will get your first choice.
.
Price is PER hamster. 
.
Syrians: $25-$80
.
Most Syrians fall between the range of $50-$70. Syrians are sold as singles or same sex pairs. If you would like a pair,  you must agree to keep them in separate cages.
.
Deposits are used to hold your hamster. They are paid by paypal. Deposits are 50% of the hamster's fee. Deposits act as a place holder! They are refunded after your visit and the full amount for the hamster is due in cash during your appointment for pickup. If you deposit on a hamster and then back out of getting the hamster, the deposit in non-refundable.
.
Hamsters are sold as PET ONLY unless otherwise discussed. If I discover that you bred your pet only hamster(s), I will likely take legal action against your breach of contract. Breeding hamsters should not be done unless you’re fully committed to doing so. I will not sell animals as breeders if are not breeding quality and you must meet a check list for buying breeding stock . Good breeders do not breed just for the heck of it and they will carefully select which animals make the best pair. Keep in mind that if you do breed your hamsters, you may not be able to rehome them. This will mean being stuck with a litter as big as 20+ babies, plus the parents, that will all depend on your care and expense. They will need hundreds of dollars in cages (every single hamster in a separate cage once older than 8 weeks), large amounts of food, and a lot of time. Hamsters are also prone to killing and eating their babies which makes them difficult to raise.  Breeding is a serious decision and it’s not for the faint of heart.
.
IMPORTANT: Starting 1/6/18, all clients MUST provide some sort of official ID during the visit, preferably a drivers license. Other accepted forms of identification are a learners permit, a college ID card, an official general state ID, or an official work ID card. This ensures you are who you say you are! 
 .
If you get a hamster from me, I require you to agree that your hamster will be allowed at least 3 full days to settle in before ANY regular handling. Hamsters can stress easily and stress can kill. I do my best to breed the best animals to ensure they don't stress too easily, but hamsters have that tendency.
 
If you ever need to rehome your hamster I require you return him/her to me! I will not offer a refund, but I will ensure he/she finds a good new home or stays with me until he/she passes away of old age. Your hamster's cage and supplies may need to be provided and donated upon return.
 
Appointments for picking up your hamster will be 30 minutes per appointment. Each appointment time slot will be scheduled either at the start of an hour or at the half hour mark. You MUST BE ON TIME for your appointment. If you're worried about being on time, be intentionally early and then wait.
 
If you cannot pick up your hamster for the scheduled pickup day, I will charge a "holding fee" which will be an additional $10 for late pickup. This holding fee will increase as more time is required for me to hold him/her for delayed pickup. If you fail to pick up your hamster after two weeks then I will drop the sale and you will lose your deposit. Late pickup may not always be possible.

Important info for Short Tailed Opossums

Section under construction 

My STOs are generally sold as singles only. If you want a same sex pair, you must provide strong proof of two complete, separate cages for them. They are sold under a PET ONLY contract unless otherwise discussed AND a breeding approval signature is provided on your contract. STOs are very difficult to breed and breeding is a very serious decision.

STOs available summer 2018.

I operate off an wait list. To sign up, I require a $10 email list fee which is credited to your eventual STO baby. An adoption application must be completed and provided for email list sign ups or those interested in available babies. To learn more about the wait list, read the hamster info section.

When I have available baby STOs, they will be posted on a Saturday morning. If you're on my wait list, you will be alerted to this.

STO babies come with a one year health guarantee and a guarantee that they will be free of illness for 2 full weeks after leaving my home.

Price is PER opossum

Retired adults: TBD

Babies and Juveniles: TBD

Pricing is subject to change without notice.

IMPORTANT: Starting 1/6/18, all clients MUST provide some sort of official ID during the visit, preferably a drivers license. Other accepted forms of identification are a learners permit, a college ID card, an official general state ID, or an official work ID card. This ensure that you are who you say you are!
