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.
Looking to adopt a hamster but we don’t have anyone suitable available? Join our adoption mailing list to receive emails when we have any newbies ready for their forever homes! 

Hamsters require a lot more space than many cages advertised as suitable for hamsters provide. Our minimum size requirement is 100cmx50cm of cage floor space (one one level). 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.

Hamsters are largely nocturnal and do not make good companions for children. Like all rodents, they are classed as exotics in the veterinary world, so adopters must be able to access an exotics-savvy vet.

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+
