About The NHC

The National Hamster Council (NHC) is the governing body of the hamster fancy in the United Kingdom, representing the interests of all concerned with the keeping, exhibiting and/or breeding of the 5 species of hamster commonly kept asd pets. As the world’s leading hamster organisation, the NHC has an unrivalled reputation, and its standards and show rules have been used – and continue to be used – by hamster clubs and societies in many countries.

Established in 1949, the NHC is the oldest such organisation in the world and its member clubs cover the whole of the UK and have members throughout the world.

With an established network of experienced and knowledgeable officers and advisors, the NHC and its affiliated clubs offer benefits to everyone interested in all types of hamster. Our clubs organise regular shows in the UK where everyone is welcome, from beginner to experienced breeder. Many club shows also have classes for pets as well as exhibition hamsters and shows are an ideal opportunity to see many colours and varieties of hamster that may not be found in most pet shops.

We have a wealth of experience and expertise within the NHC, with some of our members having kept, bred and exhibited hamsters for over 30 years. This unique pool of knowledge is made available to every club member through our information sheets, by personal contact and through our monthly journal.
