Wild Star Gerbils - Austin, TX
Breeder / Posted 5 months ago / 528 views
Here in Austin, Texas I’m privileged to offer both my own gerbils and rescues to responsible families. I’m a gerbil geek and could doubtless talk your ears off about them for hours! Just ask any happy family who has purchased or adopted from me.
As a small-scale breeder I limit the number pups born from my litters each year. Much love is devoted to every stage of their development: from the twinkle in their parents’ eyes to the moment you bring them home. My focus is on their good health, social temperament and lovely colors that aren’t found commercially.
As an animal advocate I often introduce and pair rescued gerbils with my own pups to increase their chances of adoption. These are gerbils that have come from less-than-loving conditions or were surrendered out of love. My goal is to make sure every one of them is rehabilitated and re-homed successfully.
Every gerbil in my care receives one-on-one attention daily so they’re used to being handled. They live at home with my family and are familiar with typical household sounds. I also have (mostly) well-behaved cats who enjoy engaging in staring contests with the gerbils, or singing in unison to their drum circles. Yes, that’s a thing.
Before any gerbil goes to their forever home, I encourage interested families to come visit and play with them first. This is a perfect opportunity to ask/answer questions and the gerbils definitely enjoy the attention!
