I have had my dionaea, sarracenia, and Drosera for a few months, and they haven't experienced any rain yet.... at least I don't think? Well anyways, it is supposed to rain in the next few days and I was wondering if I put them in my house or under some sort of shelter, or just let them sit in the rain?

What plants are you referring to? Most will be just fine in the rain.

Well I keep all 3 of those out in the rain year round. Just like they are in the wild.

I agree. Consider it a free pot flush.
In winter the best sunlight is really close to my house due to a large wall but if it's gonna rain I specifically move them away from the house to get as much rain as possible.
Like KK said, they get rain in the wild no one shelters them there. It's nice cuz your plants will be all clean and glistening. Mine get a bit dusty otherwise.
