  • Sarah

    Name: Sarah
    Species: Syrian hamster
    Sex: Female
    Age: Born May 2022
    Status: Available for adoption

    Sarah came into our care as part of a large intake of hamsters after someone purchased 2 female Syrians who turned out to both be pregnant!

    She is a typical young hammy in that she is a little nervous of being handled, but isn’t bitey. She will need a patient adopter who is happy to work on his taming. While she is ok with very calm handling, she isn’t suitable for handling children at the moment.

    Minimum housing requirements: 100x50cm. Sarah will also need a multichamber hide or multiple large hides, 28cm or larger wheel, a sand bath and plenty of deep substrate for burrowing in.

  • Spinner

    Name: Spinner
    Species: Syrian hamster
    Sex: Female
    Age: Approx 5 months old
    Status: Available for adoption

    Spinner came into our care along with a large number of baby hamsters after her previous humans unknowingly purchased her and another female pregnant.

    Spinner has finished her mothering duties and has also passed her pregnancy watch, so is now looking for her forever home.

    She is active and inquistive, but a bit nervous of handling at present. She will likely improve over time with a patient adopter. She does better in a barless enclosure.

    Minimum housing requirements: 100x50cm barless enclosure (an Ikea Linnmon would be perfect!). Spinner will also need a multichamber hide, 28cm or larger wheel, a sand bath and plenty of deep substrate for burrowing in.

  • Heidi

    Name: Heidi
    Species: Syrian hamster
    Sex: Female
    Age: Approx 4 months old
    Status: Available for adoption

    Heidi came into our care as part of a large intake of hamsters after someone purchased 2 female Syrians who turned out to both be pregnant!

    Heidi has now passed her pregnancy watch and is ready to find a home. She is a friendly hammy who is ok with calm handling, but may be a little jumpy at first.

    Minimum housing requirements: 100x50cm barless enclosure. Heidi will also need a multichamber hide, 28cm or larger wheel, a sand bath and plenty of deep substrate for burrowing in.

  • Pinto

    Name: Pinto
    Species: Roborovski dwarf hamster
    Sex: Male
    Age: Approx 3 Months
    Status: RESERVED

    Pinto came to us to find a new home as his human’s landlord wouldn’t allow animals. He has been enjoying a significant enclosure upgrade since arriving with us and particularly loves his multichamber hide.

    Like most robos, Pinto is a speedy guy and isn’t suitable for handling by children. He is a lot of fun to watch zooming around his setup. He may be small but he certainly uses all the space!

    Minimum housing requirements: Pinto is currently housed in a 100x50cm setup so will need to be rehomed to this size enclosure as a minimum. He will also need a multichamber hide, 20cm wheel, large sand area and plenty of deep substrate for burrowing in.
