Rehoming – Profile


Paula and Petra were signed over to our care as a result of the cost-of-living crisis and their owners being unable to afford to keep them.

Behaviour observations on site:

Paula and Petra are two sisters looking for a home together.

These inquisitive girls enjoy exploring their cage, burrowing, and curling up together in their favourite coconut hut. Petra is the more confident of the two; she will come out to see you as soon as she knows you are there and will happily take treats from you and climb up your arm. Paula will take a little longer but won’t be far behind her sister.

They are both friendly gerbils but don’t like to be over-handled and can be wriggly when held.

They will need a large indoor gerbilarium that is deep enough for them to burrow in and lots of enrichment for them to play with.

If you are interested in adopting Paula and Petra, please fill out an application form below and forward us photos of your setup to

Adoption fee: minimum donation of £12.25 for the pair

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the gerbils.
