Are you ready to get the hamster ball rolling? Submit an adoption application to start the process!
With over 200 hamsters, it is easiest (and more fun) to visit the rescue directly and choose your new pet. Tony will be there to guide you toward exactly the right little friend! After your application is reviewed, we will set up an appointment for you to come by.
If you're not able to make the trip to the rescue directly, Tony will help you choose the right new pet via photos and videos, based on your specifications listed in your adoption application. Once we have chatted and found the right match, we will set up a mobile adoption for you to take them home!
We accept all the cages listed throughout this site.
Wheels must be solid-surfaced. Mesh or wire wheels are not accepted.
Dwarves: 8" or larger

We use both aspen shavings and paper bedding at our rescue, in addition to other enrichment materials. For more bedding info, see the Bedding page!
Hamsters need more than bare basics--they need lots of stimulating toys and textures to engage their brain and keep them entertained! We encourage lots of enrichment for our hamsters. Please see the Enrichment page for more ideas.
