Adoption

hamsters, Chinchillas & Degus

Hamsters need more than most people realise

We occasionally have hamsters, gerbils, degus and mice in at the rescue. Each have specialist care requirements which you should research before making the decision to adopt.

They can make great companion animals and it’s great fun to watch their antics! However, their needs can be complex and they require much more space than most people realise.

Why we say ‘Adopt don’t Shop’

Animals in pet shops are bred in bad conditions, meaning their health is often poor, temperaments can be unpredictable and you’re funding highly unethical mass breeding. 

Rescues all over the UK are struggling with unwanted animals. Why add to the problem of overpopulation when there are so many lovely animals waiting for their forever homes in foster care? 

Pet shops get their animals from highly unethical rodent mills which are horrible places. Vote with your money and don’t support it!

Give one of the many unwanted or abandoned animals a second chance at a good life.

We will be in touch to provide you with support and guidance throughout your animal’s whole life.

Know the animal before adopting. We will pair you up with an animal which is right for you based on their personality.

How do I provide a great hamster home?

Hamsters are lovely little pets who are often quite overlooked. The larger, the better for their cage and it is essential to provide a correctly sized, working wheel. They love it crammed full of toys, tunnels and chews. Here are our three top tips:  

Hamsters are almost always solitary. Keeping them in the same cage can result in serious problems.
