The North American Rat Registry has appointed a Research Coordinator whose job it is to find missing records and be sure the records in the database and registry are as accurate as possible. We want to be sure there are no typos, incorrect information, false pedigrees, missing pedigrees, etc, and our always grateful to anyone that can assist with this ongoing and difficult task. Some information, understandably, we may never be able to retrieve, but we will keep this page updated as best we can. If you would like to help, or have information to share, or know how to get in touch with one of the breeders we've been unable to get in touch with, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is members like you that are responsible for making NARR a success!
While we can't always fill in
all the information for every rat in the database, gathering information
like dates of birth, health information, dates of death, and causes of death
will provide the best resource possible, so we encourage members (even those
no longer active) to provide this information and keep records updated.
Incomplete litter registrations are another we strongly advise be thorough
for the most complete picture on a breeding line. Of course, broken
pedigrees, duplicate names, incorrect genotypic colors and types, etc. are
also a problem. Again, we turn to our membership, past and present, to help
eliminate these issues. While we have been able to get in touch with many
breeders and clear up incorrect information, and fill in some missing
pieces, there are many breeders and information on their lines that we have
not been so successful with. If you have information on pedigrees from the
following breeders, or better yet, a way to contact those breeders, please
let us know! We are proud of the accuracy of our database, and look to
further strengthen the information it holds. Thank you all!
Note: Not all of those ratteries listed below are/have been members of NARR. Still, there are rats in the database with their prefixes that are part of pedigrees from rats owned or bred by NARR members. This is simply a complete list of breeders we are missing some information from, and would either like to contact direct or contact those with first hand knowledge of their lines. Thanks!

When you send your rat's information in, be sure to include their complete names and birthdays, as well as being careful to correct "typos." The program uses the dates, along with parents' names, to show which rats are siblings, and it cannot detect possible errors. Also, if you are not sure who bred a rat, ask the person you got it from; this information is very important for you and for other breeders. There is an extensive list of breeders' prefixes at The Ratster if you have any doubt as to which prefix to use for a rat you got from someone else. If you have any questions or can offer help with this research, don't hesitate to email us - that's what we're here for!
