The North American Rat Registry (NARR) is a registry for fancy rats in the United States and Canada. The NARR records individual rats as well as litters, and all varieties of fancy rats are welcome for registration. Included in the registry is an extensive database with information on more than 28,500 North American fancy rats, making it the largest and fastest-growing rat registry in North America.

Members have unlimited access to view not only those rats registered but their ancestors as well. Database information includes: ancestors, siblings, half siblings, registration numbers, dates of birth, dates of death (if supplied), offspring, and health notes.

NARR does not hold shows or maintain breed standards. It is for rats (Rattus norvegicus) only (no other rodents) for the purpose of permanently recording and storing information about animals for easy retrieval by its members. It is maintained by a group of dedicated people with the goal of providing members with the most complete, detailed and correct information available anywhere. NARR registry and database are invaluable tools for serious breeders and pet lovers, alike. If you would like to volunteer to be part of the NARR team, email us and let us know!

NARR accepts titles and terminology from the following recognized clubs: AFRMA, ARC, RatsPacNW, RSA, and URSA. RMFE titles are also included in the NARR database, but are unconfirmed. NFRS terminology is also recognized by NARR.


NOTICE: Update 2020 - PLEASE NOTE: The NARR is in a state of hiatus at this time until management of the database can be fully transferred to a new owner. After several years of operating the previous owner is unable to keep up with the processing of the database at this time. The database is being kept up and maintained largely out of pocket of the previous owner until such a time as it is operational and memberships can be accepted and processed again. No new memberships or renewals will be processed during this time, though existing memberships will still maintain access until the NARR is fully operating again.
