Hamsters dumped at rescue centre gate
Thursday 1 September
Staff at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare in Ringmer, East Sussex, are currently caring for two hamsters found dumped at the centre’s gates on Tuesday evening (30th August).
The two boys – one a Syrian Hamster, the other a Roborovski Hamster – were discovered by the security guard just before 6 o’clock. They were both in very small cages and both are suffering from urine stain, where their bedding was sodden with their own waste. A note was left with them, asking Raystede to look after the hamsters.
Chief Executive, Nigel Mason, said, “This is very cruel to just leave these tiny hamsters at our gates. Had our security guard not spotted them, they may not have survived. Thankfully though, they were found and we can now start to look for new and loving homes for them. We would urge anyone who has an animal they can no longer care for to contact us and we can advise them as to their next step.”
