*WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO A PRIVATE PROJECT*
Due to our Rattery and many others recently testing positive for Streptobacillus Moniliformis (the bacteria known to cause Rat Bite Fever in humans) we are no longer breeding for pets. We are however working with the Coalition for the Preservation of Fancy Rat Genetics by breeding clean lab rats in an attempt to eradicate this bacteria. For more information, visit the Coalition's Facebook page (here) and rattesting.org for the most up-to-date information. Thank you.
Facebook is our main method of posting and communication. For the most up-to-date information, check us out on Facebook!
Welcome to Standing Stones Rattery!
Standing Stones is a home based Rattery located in Richmond, Virginia. While I have been breeding on and off for years, this official Rattery was not established until January 2019. Being an independent hobby breeder, I do not always have rats available. I strive for quality health and temperament in my pet rats, and each litter is planned with that goal of improvement. Prices are generally higher than what you would expect from a pet store, and this is due to the amount of time, effort, and finances put into my lines. Breeding rats has never, nor will ever, be about making money! I pride myself on improving my animals, but believe there is always room for improvement! I encourage my adopters to stay in touch with me throughout their rats lives, and will always be there for anyone who has questions about their rats - Whether they were adopted from Standing Stones or elsewhere!
