In strict compliance with National All breed Rescue guidelines, all Rat
Terriers from ARTR Corp. are in good health and either spayed or neutered prior to placement
in a new home.
Great care is taken to ensure that the new home meets the specific needs
of the individual Rat Terrier by providing a loving and safe haven for
this new family member.
Prospective owners and family members are carefully screened and the home
premises inspected before the Rat Terrier is introduced into the new
environment. At future date, a follow-up visit is made by ARTR Corp. to ensure
that all is going well.
ARTR Corp. remains available as a supportive resource to the family for the
life of the Rat Terrier. All new owners of a Rat Terrier from ARTR Corp. are
required to sign a contract agreeing to maintain the best possible health
of the Rat Terrier and further stating that, in the event that
circumstances change and the Rat Terrier can no longer remain in their
home, it must be returned to ARTR Corp. and cannot be sold, given away or
taken to a shelter for replacement.
American Rat Terrier Rescue is devoted solely to rescue and neither
endorses nor promotes any individual or organization not dedicated to
rescue according to these guidelines.
