About Happy Hamsters UK

Where hamsters meet homes

At Happy Hamsters UK we aim to rescue, foster and rehome hamsters into the best possible homes all over the country. By providing loving homes, care and medical attention, we strive to match every hamster their perfect forever family. 

Happy Hamsters UK are the UKs leading hamster rescue, rescuing more than 1,000 hamsters in the last 3 years. We aim to encourage people to 'adopt don't shop', as the ethics of breeders and pet shops are sadly not up to standard. Our team are professional and knowledgeable while being passionate about animal welfare.


We provide every single foster hamster with the highest possible care standards by making sure the hamsters have enriching set ups, access to veterinary care if needed and hold their paw through a taming process. We promote proper hamster care always.


We check and verify every potential home to make sure that the adopter is the right fit for one of our hamsters. We match hamsters to humans to make a successful adoption. Our skilled management team are here every step of the way to help you through our simple adoption process. They are happy to answer all questions and provide advice.

Hamster Fair UK

Hamster Fair UK is the only ethical hamster-focused event. Designed for hamster owners and lovers to come along, learn about hamsters, proper care standards and purchase some gifts for you and your hamsters, this is a one-of-a-kind event. 

In July 2022 we hosted our first Hamster Fair, complete with 12 vendors, 200 people attend and 6 talks. In 2023, we had 24 vendors, 500 attendees, 4 talks (including one with the incredible Victoria Raechel) and multiple games with lots of prizes!
Hamster Fair has a great atmosphere where everyone is welcome. It's a great event to network with like-minded people and talk to industry professionals and meet your favourite influencers. Vendors are there with their products which you can see first hand and look before you buy. Which for many of these vendors Hamster Fair is the only place you can do this. 

Come along and see for yourself!
