Had a wonderful experience at Furball Critters! The animals were so adorable and we left with a beautiful spotted Syrian baby. Thank you!

We went to get pet rats and they had so many sweet little rats it was hard to choose just 3! They also had some supplies so it was nice to be able to grab a few things we forgot to get prior to picking the rats.

Diane is absolutely lovely, patient and very knowledgeable. We originally went to check out female Syrians however we fell in love with a male creamy champagne colored most docile little guy ever .... we are about 5wks in and Dino our newest edition is living his best life and providing us so much joy daily with his personality. Extremely friendly and health is guaranteed.... definitely worth the drive to get our newest furbaby from an uhmazing woman who cares so much for all her furball critters!

Got two pet rats last year. A great breeder to buy from.

Diane has a large selection compared to the chain stores we tried. We were more comfortable buying from someone who clearly cares for the animals than a corporation where it's difficult to know how they're being cared for.

My family and I went to Furball Critters about a week ago and purchased two female baby rats. They are so healthy and have such good temperaments. I highly recommend Furball Critters, as we will be coming back for future rats.

I don’t really think that it was worth the drive to not get a hamster. She had multiple Syrian hamsters in a small aquarium and said that she sold the hamsters at 3 weeks of age. No I think you shouldn’t buy. But she was really calm and nice and did not get angry and try to make me leave. At least meanwhile I was there. Place isn’t really clean but does follow COVID-19 rules except for the 6 feet apart one. I’m not so sure why people say that it was clean and healthy pets but when I went I saw something different. I did not go for Syrian hamsters I went for a Dwarf hamster and I asked what age you sell them and you said around 3 weeks of age. I also asked you how old the 2 little hamsters were and you said around 3 weeks. You are not supposed to sell at 4 or 3 weeks you are supposed to sell them older.

I picked up a hamster for my daughter from furball critters and I must say it was the most well-behaved hamster I've ever dealt with.

Very knowledgeable and helpful! We adopted 2 female rats and they are the sweetest and healthiest rats I've owned so far. She does a wonderful job taking care of and training all of her critters. I recommend to her to everyone who is looking for a little companion and will be adopting from here in the future!

This summer, my family and I purchased two rats here. They are affectionately named Marbles and Wrinkles now. These are by far, two of the best rats that we have ever owned, and we have had a lot!! They have the best dispositions!!! They are friendly, loving, active, smart, and so funny!!! I will go so far as saying that they are plain silly!! They love to play games, especially the chasing game, and boy are they FAST!!! I had never seen this speed in our other rats. So, I am beyond happy with the breeding that goes on here!!! Great job and thank you!

Wonderful experience, healthy n friendly animals. Really great prices, and much better care towards the animals well-being than a big pet store! I am so happy we found you and we will recommend you to anyone we know looking for these types of pets.

Highly recommended! We got our boy in September 2020 and couldn't be happier. He is healthy and adorable, and never bit us. Now he grows into a handsome lad! Thanks Diane!!

Wonderful communication and adorable critters, owner took a lot of time letting us select our pets and checked them all one by one before we took them home! She even had all the supplies we could need for our new pets- thank you so much!!!

Absolutely amazing experience. Diane was very knowledgeable and had a wide selection of furry little friends! She was very kind and helped me and my boyfriend find the sweetest baby rat! She even told us about this special food that's perfect from them. Such reasonable pricing! We will definitely keep coming back! I highly recommend Diane and her furry little critters! We brought home the most unique little baby! She's a dwarf, dumbo, rex, rat baby! And she's so sweet and gentle. so so happy with my experience!!! thank u so much Diane for everything you do!!

I have never worked with a more professional and knowledgeable breeder. I got three bristle dumbo rats and even got to meet their mother. She was very kind and did not rush me to pick a rat like most breeders. Her place is clean and the rats have livable space unlike any pet store you'll ever visit. Most rats I have bought have been ill when I acquired them and had to be nursed back to health, but my three beautiful girls are doing great and are honestly the most healthy out of my current group. I was finally able to find a suitable mate for my male rat I've been trying to breed for some time. Her liter is as happy and healthy as she is and she had no deaths at birth. I know that for any future purchases I will go back. They may be a little bit more expensive, but if you want to support safe breeding and healthy animals go here.

I cannot recommend Diane enough! I have gotten 6 rats from her over the past four years, and they've all been the most gorgeous and sweet-tempered, beautiful girls. Diane is so patient and kind and friendly. She let's you really meet the rats you're interested in, talks to you about her favorites, shares her knowledge. I would never imagine going anywhere else, and I'm plan on going back in a few months to round out my current mischief of two wonderful girls.

We’ve had this little guy for about 8 months now. He came from a pet store in San Francisco that sells Furball Critters’ hamsters. He is as sweet as can be and has never bitten us (unlike hamsters I’ve gotten from chain pet stores). I truly believe this is thanks to a wonderful breeder. Highly HIGHLY recommend! P.S.- Don’t worry, he lives in a much larger enclosure than the one pictured in this review.

I had a great experience at Furball Critters today. It's appointment only to go visit (Diane runs the business out of her house), so I called and she said she was available all day except for one hour when she had another appointment. I …

We just got them yesterday but these sweet little boys were worth the trip. We thought we wanted girl rats when we arrived but Diane really took time with us and let us hold a bunch til we found our perfect little pets. Thanks Diane! These guys will get a lot of love!

Diane is an experienced, informative, and delightful breeder. Her furry critters were all very social and curious. We walked away with two adorable dumbo rats and Diane provided a no-pressure sales approach to the experience. The pricing is reasonable and the critters are friendly, healthy, and happy. We would not hesitate to give Furball Critters more business or recommend it to friends and family.
