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+
Species: Syrian hamster
Age: Unknown – guesstimate under 1 yr
Winnie came into our care having been kept in a tiny, barren cage with another female Syrian hamster. Thankfully, they hadn’t done each other any damage but were quickly separated since Syrian hamsters are strictly solitary and will fight to the death!
Winnie is very active and friendly, but fast to handle and wriggly. She won’t be suitable for handling by young children.
Winnie will be ready to leave from 16th July, but we are happy to consider adoption applications now.
Minimum housing requirement: 100x50cm with a 28cm wheel and plenty of safe substrate for burrowing.
Please read our hamster care advice pages prior to applying to adopt.
