Rat Adoption Requirements

We want to ensure that our babies go to the best homes when they leave us so we have a few requirements.

  • Rats are very social and need companions in order to have a happy life. Babies MUST go in same-sex groups of 2 or more unless you can provide proof that you already own rats of the same gender. 

  • As a precaution due to COVID-19, we prefer that payment be made electronically through Cash App, Venmo, PayPal.

  • Before pick-up’s can be scheduled either deposit or payment. MUST be made per our agreement. This will be discussed after adoption application is approved!

  • If we have to drive to meet you there is an added fuel fee: $30 for 1-hour drive, $40 for 2-hour drive, etc.. This added fee is due with payment for your rats.
  • Local pick-ups will be done at the Us Bank/McDonald’s in Flemingsburg Ky
  • ​Lexington pick-ups will be done at PetSmart in Hamburg Pavillion off I-75 exit 108.
  • Winchester pick-ups will be done at Wal-Mart off the by-pass
  • ​Paris pick-ups will be done at Wal-Mart off the by-pass. Address can be provided.
  • If an emergency arises and you cannot make it to your pick-up please let us know ASAP. We will either try to wait for you or reschedule.
  • If you are a no show and do not contact us to reschedule within 48 hours of your scheduled pick up your payment/deposits for your rats will be forfeited and you will be banned from buying from Covered Bridge Rattery in the future.
