World Rat Day, April 4th

Pet Owner's Creed
by Craig Schumacher
We love our small friends--we value their lives.

We will not knowingly sell, or allow them to be used as food for other animals.

We understand their value goes far beyond the dollar.

We will meet all of their needs.

We will breed with care, being responsible to limit their numbers, spending the time required to achieve the best pets possible.

We realize that some "Show Quality" animals will result. This is a by-product rather than a goal. In this way the rats don't pay with their lives for our ribbons.

RMCA is a club for domestic rat and mouse lovers. Although we love wild rodents, we have very little knowledge of them. If you have found a litter of wild rats or mice and wish to care for them until they can be released back into the wild, please read the article "Caring for Orphaned Baby Rats and Mice." Wild Rodents!

Wild Rodents!
