Default Re: Looking for syrian hamster breeders in Kent or Essex area

A registration with a hamster council/organisation is not the be all and end all and doesn't say anything about a breeder's standards or ethics. There are no welfare checks required to register a prefix with the NHC as it isn't intended to be an approved breeder list. NHC breeders are hobby breeders too.

I would look at the standards and ethics first and make registration with any particular organisation a secondary concern.

If you are personally satisfied with the breeder you've found there's no need to feel guilty about adopting from them.

I have heard of a breeder called Alpha Hamstery or Alpha Stud if that's close enough to you.
