Hey, there are no nearby rat rescues for me. I live in North GA, and I already have rats, but I was wondering what the proper steps are to start a rat rescue. I know how bad it is to buy from pet stores after reading up on the forums, and I was wondering if it was possible to start my own rat rescue. Any advice is helpful, thank you!

update: edited thanks to SQ’s advice!

This is a Rat Rescue forum
The term Rattery is used to refer to a business that breeds and sells rats.
If that is what you mean then you need to go post about it on other groups, not here
If that is not what you mean then please get rid of the word rattery from your title and post
thanks

I would recommend you start very small. If you have a room dedicated to rats, that would be helpful as well. Also, be sure to have a good vet that will work with you and some, overtime might even do discounts because you rescue. Have a good screening process for adopters. I was a rat rescue of sorts for 15 years, I failed to adopt out. lol So essentially, I rescued them and they lived with me forever. lol
