Default Breeders or rescues near Buckinghamshire, UK

Hello. I am planning on getting a Syrian in the next few months and was wondering if anyone knew of any reputable breeders or rescues in or near Buckinghamshire?

I have contacted Tuftyfluffs and am just waiting for a reply, but it would be good to have a couple of other breeders to contact.

I would be open to getting a rescue ham too, and have been keeping an eye on the RSPCA website. But if anyone knows of any other reputable rescues that may have hamsters in then do say!

Hello, ooh how exciting you're getting a hamster! I thought these people might be able to help you find a rescue ham..

Hamster Rescue

If the link doesn't work just look up the southern hamster club, as even if they don't have rescue hams in your area they probably know who does! Their rescue page is lovely, some gorgeous little fluffs to look at!

Ps there is always gumtree, I got my ham from there but I think it's better to use a rescue if u can as that then frees up their resources to take other animals who need help!

Thank you for your reply herbi. I don't know if I'm just being really dim but I can't work out where 'somershire' is?!

I don't really want to get one from gumtree or preloaded, not for my first Syrian anyways! I would prefer to support a reputable rescue or breeder

Somershire isn't a place as such but could be used to describe somewhere close to the Somerset/Wiltshire borders and Somershire Hamster Rescue is located in near enough to this region.

Here's their website: Somershire Hamster Rescue - Home

The owner puts together the hamsters for adoption section in the NHC journal so it might be worth contacting her to see if she knows of anything suitable.

ImoT, I have a thread called "Winter White Dwarf Breeder" where some people posted about different breeders. I'm on the waiting list for one of TuftyFluffs dwarfies. She can take a while to respond to emails. I think I waited around 10 days for a response because she was ill. Just remember you may need to wait a while. I've been waiting since early December and could be waiting till late March. Anyway, it's worth checking her Facebook group as well. She said she should have a Syrian litter born on Valentine's day.

Hi Chesca thank you for your reply. Could you possibly post the link to your thread? I don't mind waiting a while as I can't get one until April anyways, so if I have to wait a bit after that I don't mind Yes I am keeping an eye on the Pets at Home Adoption Centre too! I've also emailed 'Animaltastic' in Hemel Hemstead as although I would never normally support a pet shop they breed their hamsters there so it's not some sort of mass breeding thing. I don't mind waiting for a reply from Tuftyfluffs either
