MSPCA Pet of the Week: Meet Manny the Hamster

You don't have to go to a pet shop to get a hamster...
Come to the MSPCA Centerville to meet Manny the hamster...

Many folks believe you need to go to the pet store to bring home a hamster.  But you can visit your local animal shelter and adopt one instead.  That’s the message the staff at the MSPCA-Cape Cod in Centerville want to relay.  And who better to relay that message than Manny, an adorable one-year-old hamster who needs nothing…save for a home!  This fuzzy “peanut” is very social, loves to be gently held and loves to play.

Manny, like all hamsters, has a pouch in his cheek that he fills with food – an adorable sight.  And like all hamsters, Manny cannot swim and therefore does not need baths; he grooms himself just fine.  Want to know more?  Email [email protected] for more info!
