How do I get listed?
If you breed fancy rats, send email to ---- with the following:
New email adress for updates: To be announced.SUBJECT: RODENT UPDATE
The info below is not mandatory as some people prefer not to post this publicly.
You may post it if you wish.
If info is not submitted in this format, the request to add it will be ignored. Updates for existing pages MUST contain the URL of the page which the info needs to be updated on. I don't have time to search all the pages for your entry. Due to the fact I get over 1000 pieces of spam mail a day, I use spam filters. You must have 'RODENT UPDATE' in the subject or the email will only be eaten by spam filters and ignored.
Webmaster not responsible for quality of breeders or animals listed and is not interested in the politics thereof. NAPA or the webmaster is not responsible for any transactions. I am only providing a service for those with an interest in fancy rats or other rodents. If you do not have a homepage, ask about rates for web design services.
Note: I get a LOT of email, so if I fail to send an answer or post your listing here in less
then a week, email me again as your email might have got lost in the shuffle.
Note on Exotic Species:
Exotic animals in the USA require a USDA (Animal Welfare Act) permit to be sold, traded or given away.
Endangered species require a USDI permit. Most small, harmless exotics do not require a permit to buy them, but only to breed and sell them (except endangered species).
Buyers should ALWAYS check to see if the seller has proper permits as the webmaster cannot take time to do this for you.
