Rescue Me ID: 17-05-10-00616Gerbil (female)

Small Mammal    Age: Young Adult


    I need to rehome my 2 adorable, female gerbils (Khaleesi and Piper) as I'm moving into a small studio and the management won't allow rodents; even harmless gerbils. I'm looking for a good, loving home for these two. Fee included both bonded gerbils, bedding, water bottle, toys, and tank.

PIease Read Before Adopting Rodents & Small Mammal in Illinois
    Rodents & Small Mammals can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Rodents are small mammals with four sharp teeth they use to eat, gnaw wood, and defend themselves. Several types of rodents are popular pets, such as chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, and guinea pigs. Even rats are kept as pets! Rodents are often purchased as gifts for children. Sadly, however, many owners of rodent pets do not know how to care for them properly, and young children are often unprepared for the responsibility of having a pet. Families may not approach the purchase of a rodent with the same level of commitment they would have to a pet dog or cat. Mistakes can be made regarding the genders of a pair of rodents, resulting in a litter of unexpected babies. Some owners of rodents simply turn their pets loose when they get tired of them, which usually leads to the death of the animals, since they are not adapted to life in the wild. Free to good home ads can result in a rodent being used for snake food. There are some rodent rescue operations out there that can receive discarded pets, but these places tend to become overloaded due to so many people getting rid of their rodents. Please approach all decisions to get a pet with a long-term commitment, and pursue adoption rather than buying a rodent from a pet store.

    Rodents have front teeth that never stop growing and have to be worn down constantly by gnawing. Rodents are one of only a few types of placental mammals native to Australia. Weasels are not rodents. Rabbits are not rodents.
