Available Hamsters

Vectis Hamstery is closed to rehoming (including applications) due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Rest assured that the babies who were born here and have not yet been rehomed continue to be well loved. Thanks to the Facebook page followers they are getting names so they feel more at home until they are able to leave! If they are too old to be rehomed when all this is over, they will have a forever home here.

To keep getting your hamster fix, check out the blog. You can sign up to the Vectis Hamstery mailing list to get updates on when rehoming reopens.

Vectis Hamstery sometimes has hamsters ready for rehoming. All available hamsters are listed on this page.

If you are interested in a hamster, please contact Vectis! Use the contact link in the menu or the button at the bottom of this page. You will receive an application form. This form asks for some information about the hamster’s new home. It also gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you have.

The Vectis ethos holds the health and happiness of the hamsters at heart. As a result, young hamsters are handled regularly. They experience a variety of sounds, surfaces and situations as part of their comprehensive socialisation.

New owners receive a rehoming folder which contains:

  • a pedigree,
  • a birth certificate,
  • a care leaflet,
  • a rehoming agreement,
  • a copy of the socialisation plan for that individual hamster. This plan includes information about their handling, growth, and any health testing.
