I am a breeder, will you still be able to give my details to those interested in rehoming hamsters?
If you wish for the details of your hamstery to be given to interested parties, you will need to opt in on your membership form or contact the club secrety in writing or via email to let her know that you are happy to be contacted with rehoming enquiries. Breeders may opt in to being featured on the ‘Breeders’ page on the website by contacting the Web Editor.
