Jacky Carter has been rescuing hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals for many years.  As many as 50 can arrive in a week, all with a sorry tale to tell.  Some are there because the owner has lost interest in them, or are moving house and can't take them with them, others have just been abandoned or have become too much of a burden because they are ill.

Good homes are always wanted for these little animals who can bring so much pleasure and enjoyment.  If you would like to give a hamster a good home you can contact Jacky on 020 8658 5452(based in SE London).  See Current Rescues for hamsters that she is currently trying to re-home.
