A big happy ending for little hamsters.

Posted in Adoptions at 7:32 am by Jenn

bellamaranthBella and Amaranth, who were some of our longest-kept fosters  (and officially the smallest!) found their forever home last week.  Their new mom Erin wanted hamster friends to share her life with, and she was committed to saving a little life in need!  She contacted ACR&S, and we had to be up front — Bella and Amaranth were older, and being dwarves, had a tendency to be a little nippy.  That was ok, she said, if they wanted to hang out and enjoy themselves and not be handled, they had the right!

The adoption was a great success, and the girls immediately went to work on their food.  (They were barely phased by the car ride).  Afterwards, they spent a charming evening running loudly on the wheel until poor Erin had to remove it so she could get some beauty rest!

Thank you Erin, for giving these older girls a place to live out their lives where they can be appreciated for the marshmallow puffs that they are!

    So happy I was given the opportunity to adopt these two precious girls who have already provided hours enjoyment in watching them go about their busy little lives and run around their home at top notch speeds! They certainly have an agenda in mind and stick to their routines every night. Already they are well trained as to what a “treat bag” being opened sounds like and stand up and to meet the treat as it comes to their level! Plus, each day they offer new and interesting hamster-isms for me to ponder :0)
    Thank you so much for all that you do for creatures great and small!
    Take Care,

    Congrats to Bella and Amaranth for finding a wonderful human to love them! Proof that beauty comes in all ages and sizes! Lucky Erin to have them pre-trained and athletic, as well. May you all live happily, ever after!

    And, once again, thanks to ACRS humans for bringing them all together.
