Growing up, I had a hamster. His name was Mr. Bigglesworth and he was a great pet. I could feed him and forget about him. Okay, I don't mean just forget about him forever, but I didn't have to worry about running home to let him outside, or worry that he'd chew anything up, or worry about exercising him. Aside from feeding, watering, cleaning his cage, and some socialization, he was self-contained.

Meet 'Gerbil.' Gerbil doesn't have a family or a kid to call his own. He's up for adoption. He too can be a self-contained pet for the right person or family. And rodents make great companions. For only a $15 donation, you get Gerbil and his cage! What a deal!
