Hamsters

Thank you for your interest in adopting a hamster! Below you will find details of the hammies we currently have in our care who are looking for new homes.  If you are interested in adopting a hamster, please email us so we can provide you with our adoption questionnaire.

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 (some hams may require more space – please see each individual animal description). Please take a look at our hamster housing 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 £10 minimum donation to help cover the costs of caring for the animals at Tiny Paws MCR .


Sammy – Available for Adoption!

Sammy is an approx 19 month old male Russian dwarf hamster who is looking for a loving retirement home after surviving a house fire.

Sammy came to us with fur loss on his upper abdomen and front legs. He has been examined closely under anaesthetic, and skin scrapes have shown no positive results for any parasites, so the reason for the baldness is unknown (possibly age-related, or cushing’s disease) and he currently does not require any further treatment. Any potential adopter must be happy to monitor his skin for any changes and seek vet advice if this occurs.

Aside from his baldness, Sammy is a happy and active little guy who enjoys burrowing in deep bedding and running on a wheel or flying saucer. He can be stroked, however is a little nippy and not keen on being picked up currently, but can easily be moved from cage to playpen inside a tube. He will require a minimum cage size of 80x50cm.

Please drop us an email to tinypawsmcr@gmail.com if you can offer Sammy a caring home.
