It’s best to join these groups first before getting a hamster to get all the information you need. These groups are also very active and can respond faster than any other sites that you follow.

GENERAL / WORLDWIDE GROUPS
Here is a list of worldwide Facebook groups that share general information. Some countries don’t have an active or informative community for hamster owners of their own. These groups will be your go-to for your questions and concern.
Remember that each country has different rules or requirements. Hence, some information may contradict. When you find yourself in that situation, choosing between the recommendations from different countries is best.

We encourage first-time hamster owners to join. If you feel like you have made a mistake, such as buying the wrong cage or toys, but need more information, find support here. We won’t judge you by this and are more than happy to help.
