Our Charity works to educate the community about pet rats: the joys and needs of these very special pets. We also provide low-cost health checks, overnight aftercare, post-op monitoring, and boarding services. All donations go toward the supplies needed to provide antibiotics, nebulizer treatments, mite/lice treatments, abscess cleaning, and post-op care when families need help.

Genetic Hairless, Harley (long hair), Ruby-eyed Siamese, Beige, Martin, & Silvermane,
I am a Gen-X mother of three (7, 15, & 16) and well educated. This is to say, I'm not a "backyard" breeder, nor am I flighty and doing this on a whim. I work full time in white-collar America, while my Boomer-mother enjoys answering the phone and responding to text/emails.
My Facebook page is there for people to send messages and share their own posts of my babies. Every so often I'll post if I need to get word out to my followers about available litters or foster opportunities. If you adopt and are already on FB, I ask you follow my page and post picture/video updates. I really enjoy seeing my babies happy and watching their antics!
Just like my adopters and surrenders, my life did a hard left in less than 24 hours and the impact resulted in my inability to continue at my pre-pandemic level of community involvement.
I'm reducing my program, at least for a few years, to focus guiding my human munchkins into adulthood and get my house in order. Some of my lines are being maintained by the private breeder I obtained Joules, Teddy, and Clare Bear from all those years ago; while I keep a smaller subsect from them here for my loyal adopters and as our ESAs.
I am sincere and while I hate giving bad news, I will be honest with you. I will also be there for them in any way I can, especially when it comes to their health. The rats are my babies first and I never stop loving every single one of them.
All JOSR rats are welcome back should you need help. Our rats always have a home here.
In all sincerity, Tina
If you'd like to be an adopter, pricing is $50/ea. with a 50% non-refundable deposit.
I charge more than other breeders, but ownership of JOSR rats includes:
Should you request a litter from a JOSR you've adopted previously, you will have pick of the litter, minimum of 2.
Note: if you want to breed your JOSR female, they need monitored throughout the 8-week process and spade after the pups are weaned to reduce cancer risk. We will keep them on-site and provide post-op care, but you'll need to cover the spay. (it's worth it)
