Hamster Adoption Policy
Hamsters require a lot more space than many cages advertised as suitable for hamsters provide. Our minimum size requirement is 80cmx50cm of unbroken floor space for dwarf hamsters and 100x50cm for Syrians (some hams may require more space – please see each individual animal description). Please take a look at our hamster advice page for ideas.
Prior to adoption we will carry out a set-up check, usually via email, to ensure the housing requirements for the animal you wish to adopt will be met.
Hamsters adopted from us must not be bred from under any circumstances.
Our adoption fee for a hamster is a £15 minimum donation to help cover the costs of caring for the animals at Tiny Paws MCR . Adopters must be aged 18+

These lovely boys were surrendered to us with their mother and sister, having been born after their previous human took both mum and dad in from a facebook ad. Unfortunately the boys weren’t separated from the females at the appropriate time, so both their sister and mum are currently on pregnancy watch, however the boys will, all being well, be good to leave for their new homes once they have passed their minimum monitoring period with us (and have grown up a bit more!).
They are all quite tame and ok with calm handling, but potential adopters are reminded that hamsters are prey animals and as such may not always appreciate being picked up and cuddled, and generally don’t make good “pets” for children.
Housing requirements: 100x50cm minimum on one level, plenty of safe substrate for burrowing in, a 28cm or larger wheel and ideally a multichamber hide.
