Midlands Rat Club

Breeders and Rescues

All listed breeders and rescues are members of the Midlands Rat Club and have been included at their own request. Since October 2014 anyone wishing to be added to this list is also required to have either the recommendation of an MRC member already on the list who has personal experience of the applicant's rattery, or to have a home visit by a committee approved person. Inclusion on this list does not constitute a recommendation by the Midlands Rat Club. You must use your own judgement to select a breeder.
