Buying A Hamster

Many pet shops have hamsters for sale. However, here at Elms Pets, we recommend that hamsters be purchased from private breeders. Where this may not always be possible, it is worth considering, that many rescue homes have hamster looking for a loving family.

If you do purchase a hamster from a pet shop, it is important to know that although there are some reputable breeders, many of these shops buy them from a mass-producing breeding farm, where the breeders aim for quantity, rather than quality. No information about these hamsters is usually available and they have rarely been handled, meaning they may be unpredictable in terms of behaviour.
