Small Animal Accommodation Size Requirements

These are the minimum sizes required for accommodation when you adopt a ‘small furry’ from us.

Our overarching advice for any of these animals would be that the bigger their enclosure, the better.

We will ask to see photographs of your set up as part of our Home Check process, prior to adoption.
