rehoming as pets

Metallica Hamstery does not breed in high volumes or for profit and I do so only to improve the quality of the breed and at a time when I can be sure that I can give each litter the individual time and attention they need to be happy and healthy hamsters. This means that I won’t always have babies available to rehome to pet homes but I operate a waiting list so I am able top keep you updated if a suitable pup becomes available.

As a responsible breeder, I will show discretion when rehoming my pups and in order to ensure that the hamsters I have raised are going to the best homes, all prospective rehomers not personally known to me will need to answer a few questions before I add you to my waiting list. If you’ve never had Chinese Hamsters before and want to ask questions of me, them I am more than happy to help.

You will need to have permission from the owner of the property you live in to own pets. If you are under 16 years old, you will need to ask your parents to get in touch with me.

Chinese Hamsters can live for up to 3-4 years and you will need to make sure that you are happy to commit to provide a hamster with the proper care for the duration of their life. You will need to make sure that your hamster has a suitable cage to live in and is provided with sufficient food and water, which includes the provision of suitable fresh vegetables.

If you find that you are unable to continue to care for your new hamster at any time then you agree to contact me so that arrangements can be made to return the hamster to my care. Please do not take this for granted and think that this is a ‘trial’ where you can return the hamster if you are bored of them.

All pet rehomers will receive a ‘Welcome Pack’ which includes your hamster’s pedigree, an individual profile of your hamster outlining their experiences and preferences, a sample pack of food and treats, information leaflets about basic hamster care, a joining form for your local NHC affiliated hamster club and a declaration from me stating that I will accept the hamster back at any time if you are unable to care for them.
