Degu Rescue.Welcome to the eRodent Degu Rescue page. Sadly degus are becoming more and more common in rescue centres - people do like to buy something different, not realising they can live for 8 or 9 years and then want to rehome them when the children loose interest. If you buy a pet for your child and then rehome it when they loose interest, all you are teaching them is that living things are disposable and someone else will always deal with your responsibilities for you. That said many people also have to part with their pets through no fault of their own due to unforeseen changes in circumstances.
Places to look for a degu.First of all it is worth calling around the RSPCA centres in your area as they frequently get degus in, or know of another centre that has them in. They can really struggle to get homes for them.
