SHOPPING

Many pet shops are starting to stock a better variety of hamster and rodent products nowadays, but some are still a waste of time. Please know what you need to avoid!

LOCALLY PRODUCED PRODUCTS VIA SMALL BUSINESSES ARE USUALLY BETTER RESEARCHED & SAFER.

Smaller towns and cities are still lagging way behind, both in products and information, and the online shops listed below can assist those members struggling to get anything other than the outdated bad items. 

Most local small businesses use Pudo or PostNet in order to keep delivery costs down for outlying areas where courier charges via general online shops are usually high.

HSA ENCOURAGES YOU TO AVOID SUPPORTING SHOPS THAT SELL ANIMALS.

May be useful to keep the BASIC CARE SHEET on hand when out shopping if you're new to hamsters:
