I wish there were more breeders in NE
I've come to the conclusion over the years that there need to be more rodent breeders in New England. Every time I try to find one, I fail.
Several years ago, around the time I joind PT, I was looking for hamster breeders up here because I had a syrian and I was getting more interested in dwarves. Our petstores didn't carry dwarves at the time, so I wanted to find a breeder. I never did. I looked all the places I could think of, and tried every search I could come up with on google, but it yielded only web pages at least a year out of date or groups that were now closed.
For almost a year now I have been seriously considering adopting some rats. I've heard such good things about them as pets. So, I went looking for rat breeders in NE...nothing. All shut down. I'm very confused. I feel like I must be looking in the wrong places or searching for the wrong things. It's discouraging. :/
