    I want to buy a pair of gerbils but I'd prefer not to buy them from the petshop.

    Anyone know how/where I can find a private breeder?

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Thankyou for not resorting to pet shops, they're not the nicest of places :(

    Have you tried going on a gerbil forum? there are a few of them out there and many members are also breeders. You might not be able to get a gerbil pup from one of those people but if you join and keep posting and showing a definite intrest in wanting a gerbil, you might be lucky!

    Otherwise, there are also rescues out there! Many RSPCA rescue centres also have rodents and there are independant rodent rescues up and down the country, a quick google search for rodent rescues in your area should help!

    If all else fails, there are loads of adverts on places like Pets4homes and Preloved for unwanted litters or unwanted presents looking for homes!

    hope thats helped & good luck :)

    I live in South East Wales.

    Thank you for the information/suggestions (and the welcome) Verbatim! I've had a quick browse of the websites that you've mentioned and signed up to a breeder forum to post a wanted ad, but there doesn't seem to be anything local-ish to me at the moment. I'll be patient and keep checking though.
