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 £10 minimum donation to help cover the costs of caring for the animals at Tiny Paws MCR . Adopters must be aged 18+
- Dwarf Hamsters
Name: Saturn, Mars, Earth, Pluto.
Species: Hybrid Russian dwarf hamsters
Sex: Saturn & Earth – Female, Mars & Pluto – Male
Age: Born 20th July 2021
Status: Pluto – RESERVED
Saturn, Earth & Mars – Available for adoption (separately) from 20th September
These adorable dwarf hammies were born in rescue at Burrowed Hearts Animal Rescue after they had a large intake of hamsters, one of whom gave birth to these guys!
As they are young, all will require taming, so adopters must be patient and understanding of hamster behaviour. They are gorgeous little beans who love living a natural hamster life – burrowing in deep substrate and popping out to forage for food after humans have gone to bed! They are not cuddly children’s “pets”.
Housing requirements: A minimum enclosure size of 80x50cm (floor space on one level), 20cm wheel, plenty of enrichment and deep substrate for burrowing in.
