Orillia Matters, in partnership with the SPCA Orillia Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi there,

My name is Chilli and I'm a one-year-old teddy bear hamster.

I am a very friendly boy who enjoys being held.

I love treats and running on my wheel. 

I take long naps in my house.

I like to be handled and enjoy some good pocket time while you walk around.

Exploring is my middle name - I enjoy exploring my cage and climbing the bars.

Like most hamsters I am a night owl and tend to be awake more while your sleeping.  

If you think i'd be a good match for your family come meet me today at the Orillia Animal Centre.
