Hamsters

Thank you for your interest in adopting a hamster! Below you will find details of our hamster adoption policy and the hammies we currently have in our care who are looking for new homes. 

Hamsters Looking for Homes

Name: Holly
Species: Syrian hamster
Age: Approx 5 months
Sex: Female
Status: Available for adoption from 01.02.20

Holly arrived in our care heavily pregnant and gave birth to 12 pups 2 days later. She will shortly be relieved of her mothering duties, and is looking forward to getting her own space back, and getting to be a young hammy herself again!

Holly is currently house in a 100x50cm cage, and has shown some bar chewing in this set-up, so it is possible she needs more space than this, however her behaviour may settle once she is free of the pups and can have her wheel and other enrichment back in her cage.

Holly will require a set-up of at least 100x50cm with a 28cm wheel. She is friendly and fine with calm handling.


Name: Baby hamsters
Species: Syrian hamster
Age: Born 24.12.19
Sex: Male
Status: Available for adoption from 11.02.20

Shortly before Christmas, we took in a female Syrian hamster. Holly, who arrived pregnant and gave birth to 12 pups on xmas eve. The pups will be ready for adoption (individually) at 7 weeks of age, on 11th February. We are happy to start considering potential adopters now, with a view to reserving the hammies so they can go off to their forever homes at 7 weeks.

The absolute minimum cage size required for each hamster is 80x50cm unbroken floor space (i.e. all on one level). Some hamsters may end up requiring more space than this, in particular, we often find that 80x50cm just isn’t enough space for females as they start showing signs of stress such as bar chewing. The more space you can give the better. Please bare this in mind when considering adopting!
