Welcome to The Northern Hamster Club, affiliated to The National Hamster Council.

We are dedicated to encouraging the keeping, breeding and exhibition of all species of hamster to a standard defined by our governing body, the National Hamster Council (NHC).

We arrange and organise hamster shows in the North of England 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.

We would love to have you join us and membership is open to anyone with an interest in keeping hamsters, with international, associate and paperless options available. Want to know more? You can find all the advantages of membership plus everything else you need to know here.

Want to know more about us before you join or need some information about hamster breeders? Our Secretary has lots of experience in the hamster world and would be happy to point you in the right direction. Her contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.
