Elfie's Story...
Elfie is a young, friendly hamster, rescued by Empty Cages Collective after her former guardian became overwhelmed with an accidental litter. This ingenious little girl has been known to put in the time and effort, figure her environment, and come out with the most effective way of rearranging everything, so that she can escape. It is entertaining, and challenging to keep up with Elfie, trying to give her new fun activities, and to keep her in one place. When she does escape, she doesn't go far at all, as it is not about escaping, as much as it is about showing us her smarts, and becoming even more adorable in the process. You would never know that a true escape artist, and born contortionist is hiding within that beautifully curvaceous body of hers. And, to top off her seemingly endless charm and appeal, Elfie is trusting, affectionate, and completely at ease when being held by our volunteers. In fact, she seems to think that stretching out, and napping in someone's hands, is a perfectly ordinary activity to do, and she likes to do it as often as possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elfie, a Brooklyn Hamster was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hamster for sale in Brooklyn, or seeking a Hamster from a breeder in Brooklyn.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Brooklyn already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Brooklyn breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hamster breeders who help with Hamster rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Brooklyn paves the way for another one to be saved.
