Help OC Dumbos give roof rats as free pets

Donation protected
Starting years ago with rescued Roof Rats (rattus rattus), I selectively bred them for tameness and started making them available for people to adopt as pets.  We have even started to breed them in different colors that do not occur naturally in the wild: 
I have a website, OC Dumbos , where people could, until recently, reserve both Dumbo rats and Roof rats for purchase.

After we relocated  to Osceola County, Florida, and we were informed that we are not allowed to sell rats from our home.  We will stop breeding Dumbo rats.

However, we are the only breeders of domesticated Roof Rats.  I feel that it would be tragic to lose this colony.  They are unique and wonderful animals.
The last time Roof Rat domestication was attempted was in the 1990's in England.  They failed because their colony was too inbred, and they were having problems getting them to breed.  It was a steep learning curve, but we are now able to consistently breed healthy, genetically tame litters.
Because they are so unique, we will keep breeding them at our expense, and offer socialized babies and trained adults for free to anyone who can demonstrate a sincere desire and ability to keep them as pets.  We will also offer classes to people on their care and training, where people will be able to play with tame adults and babies.

If you would like to help us make these rats available for people as pets, please donate to our GoFundMe.

If you are interested in adopting some Roof Rats, please visit the OC Dumbos website  and sign up on our waiting list.  There is no charge for adoptions, but any donations will be greatly appreciated.

Finally, please subscribe to our YouTube channel  to show your support.  If 1,000 people subscribe, we will be able to get some income from advertisements.
