Adoption fees

How much does it cost to adopt a rat?

When you adopt from the NZRR, your new rat is all ready to go. We ensure all rats are healthy and prepared for their new home prior to adoption, unless they have special needs which have been discussed with you in advance. Our adoption fees are great value for money as all rats are:

  • Healthy and temperament checked.
  • Desexed where appropriate.
  • De-mited.
  • Adoption fees help us to rescue other rats in need.

Current adoption fees:

Neutered boys – $30 each.
Spayed girls – $40 each.
Non-desexed rats – $10 each.

Any donations you may wish to make on top of this are gratefully appreciated. We are a non-profit organisation, and copies of our financial statements are available on request.
