About Our Rescue Group:Central Texas Rat Rescue is a small rescue operating in Austin, TX dedicated to the rescue of domesticated (pet) rats and quality adoption services. Our first priority is to assist local shelters by taking in their surrendered rats. We do take in owner surrenders as space and funds permit.
When you adopt from CTRR, you adopt a companion that has been assessed to the best of our ability for health and temperament, with a lifelong return policy. Most rats are already spayed/neutered for a fraction of the cost elsewhere, and all rats have been treated for parasites and given any needed veterinary care. Plus, you give a loving home to a homeless rattie, allowing us to rescue more rats in need! How can you beat that?

Come Meet our Pets:Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about adoption and to schedule an appointment. We do not operate a store front or actual shelter - our rats are in personal homes and thus we do not have "business hours." When sending an email, there may be times when it can take a few days for us to get back to you due to other commitments. Our volunteers work full-time outside of the rescue and have other obligations. If you do not receive a reply within a week, please contact us again as we may not have received your message!
Our Adoption Process:Adopting a rat from us is not difficult. We like a chance to get to know you and to determine the right fit for your family. We have an adoption application and an adoption contract that must be signed. Our adoption fee is $50 per rat (if spayed/neutered), $15 per rat if it cannot be spayed/neutered due to age or other concerns. This may seem high, but please keep in mind our rats are spayed and neutered, making them much healthier, happier pets, and we ask less than what we pay for these surgeries.
Rats must be adopted in pairs unless joining resident rats, as rats are highly social animals and need company. CTRR rats WILL NOT be sold as feeders, for laboratory use, or for breeding. Our rats are companion animals only.
