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 25,000 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!

Announcement: FRAUD ALERT - It has been brought to my attention that someone is attempting to sell NARR registration certificates via their webstore. Please be advised they are NOT affiliated with NARR or authorized to sell anything on the behalf of NARR. The ONLY website that has any authorization to sell anything related to NARR is this one, and at this time the only things sold are memberships to the NARR. The certificates being sold are available free to download and print for members who wish to have such a paper certificate. Do not be tricked into buying things for NARR elsewhere. If you ever have any questions as to whether something is legitimately related to NARR, or if you ever see any suspicious listings, please contact us so that we may deal with or clarify the situation. Thank you.

7/1/2013 - This is a personal announcement from Sarah. I just want to say that I have served as Admin for NARR since 2007. I have 'met' some wonderful people, and have had so much positive feedback. I appreciate every member that I have had the privilege of working with. Without the members and the dedication of breeders, past and present, this database wouldn't be what it is today. I'm amazed at it's growth and potential, and am excited to see how it will continue to grow and thrive under the leadership of Beth Chan, your new admin. This will be my last update, and I just want to thank everyone for all the kind words, encouragement, and assistance over these 6 years. Amazing! Also an official reminder that with the new administrator, be sure to use the new NARR mailing address and new paypal address, as seen at left. All forms are updated to reflect this change. Please be advised that any mail coming to the old PO Box will be returned to the sender, not forwarded to the new address. Thank you to all our members for their continued support in 2013 and beyond!

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.
