Have you ever considered gerbils as pets? If not,
here are some jolly good reasons why you should. They are friendly, gentle creatures.They have a great sense of humour and enjoy human contact.They are not totally nocturnal so are great for children.They live in pairs or groups.They are clean, odourless creatures and don’t need cleaning out too often.They are great fun to have out in the house as they get up to all sorts of antics.They don’t bite unless greatly provoked.They come in so many different colours.They are just the best pets you can have!
Here at Roger’s Wildlife Rescue I breed gerbils and sell them to members of the public and “nice” pet shops. If you come to me for gerbils I will spend time making sure you are happy with handling and caring for your gerbils, and you will have a wide choice of colours. You can meet the gerbils’ parents, often see tiny new pups (baby gerbils) and ask all those questions you will have before buying a new pet.
We also sell bedding and food.
With each pair of gerbils sold, I will give you my pack of information about keeping gerbils, taking you through basic care and setting up their home, to gerbil behaviour and illnesses, and advice about breeding gerbils and introducing gerbils if one has died.
A large number of my private sales are for people who have lost one of their gerbils and need to introduce another. Most people don’t realise that you can do this. Gerbils on their own are lonely and withdrawn but, while it is very hard to introduce another adult of the same sex, it is normally very easy to introduce one or two very small babies, as the older gerbil will “mother” them instead of attacking. The pups must be only about 4 weeks old, and introductions should be made slowly and carefully at first, particularly with females, but they usually work without a problem. It is better to try this rather than leave your single gerbil lonely.
If you are interested in buying a pair or group of
gerbils, or need some babies to introduce to a lonely
one, please click here to contact me. Please – NEVER
buy a single gerbil from a pet shop. A single gerbil is an
unhappy gerbil and it is cruel to keep them alone all their
I charge £7 a gerbil, but I do not sell single ones unless I have introduced one to an older one for you. You will need to buy 2 or more gerbils together.
