Welcome to the website of The National Hamster Council.

The National Hamster Council is dedicated to encouraging the keeping, breeding and exhibition of all species of hamster to a required standard.

Through our three affiliated regional clubs we arrange and organise hamster shows throughout the UK where you will see hamsters of differerent colours and species that you may never have seen in pet shops.

With access to some of the country’s top breeders and experienced keepers of all species of hamster, we also provide advice on hamster care, welfare and the feeding of hamsters.
