- Contact me via text message, e-mail, or fill out the contact form on the Contact Me page. - Let me know which animals you are applying for (rats, mice, or degus), and I will send you the corresponding application. - Once you have filled out the application, sent in the required pictures, and I have reviewed your information, you will either be approved or denied for adoption. - Approved breeders and previous adopters will be able to contact me at any time to be added to a waiting list. - Approved breeders will have first pick of the litter (after I have chosen my hold backs). After the breeders have made their selections, my previous adopters will be able to choose from the remaining babies. Once myself, the breeders, and previous adopters have made their selections, I will post all remaining babies for any new adopters to choose from. - New adopters will be able to choose babies (after I have made a specified availability post) on a first come, first served basis once they are approved. If you have not filled out an application and been approved, then you will not be able to select and reserve any animals. - Once you have made your selection, and sent in the adoption fees, we will then set up a pick-up time and date.
While this may seem like there won't be many babies available for new adopters, I can assure you, there will still be plenty of babies! It's not often I have approved breeders that adopt due to my breeder application being very strict. While I do have multiple repeat adopters, there are usually only 3-4 per round of breeding. I also don't always keep babies each round of breeding, which would still leave lots of opportunities for new adopters to get babies! This method for adoptions makes it a smoother process. There is only one of me, and many adopters I speak with on a daily basis. If you have any questions about my adoption process, or if something isn't clear, please don't hesitate to ask me any questions!
I have the right to deny any applicant that wishes to adopt from me during any point leading up to the official adoption. If at any time I do not feel you are a good fit for the animals I breed, I will inform you as to why. I am willing to help educate potential adopters on the proper care for their animals, but if I feel that care will not stay consistent, or you are not willing to work with the recommended supplies, you will not be approved for adoption. I take this very seriously. Breeding is a side hobby of mine, not to make a profit or quick sale. I take the time to find fitting adopters for the animals I work hard to produce and care for, even if that means I have the animals longer than expected. Filling out the application is REQUIRED for potential adoption. Refusing to fill it out means you will not be adopting from me.
