Can you give Bromsgrove Blue Cross' gerbils 'Frank' and 'Gerrard' their 'fur-ever' home?

AN APPEAL has been launched by Bromsgrove’s Blue Cross to find a ‘fur-ever’ home for two male gerbils.

The pair have been at the centre in Catshill for nearly a month.

The seven-month-old pals are inquisitive little guys who love to dig around. They will also come to greet you and climb onto your hand to say hello.

Amy Neale, Bromsgrove Blue Cross’ Animal Welfare Assistant, said: “We don’t know why these cute little chaps have had zero interest since they have been with us.

“Dogs and cats may be considered a more popular choice when people are thinking of taking on a pet, but we would urge anyone to consider taking on smaller pets.

“They have just as much character, playfulness and love as other pets and we hope the right owners will come forward and enjoy their company just as much as we have over the last few weeks.“

The pair could live with calm children who will be gentle around them. Their minimum accommodation needs are – L70 x D35 x H50cm.

Visit or call 0300 777 1460 for more on the Blue Cross and if you can offer the gerbils their ‘fur-ever’ home.
