Small Animals Make Great Pets!

Looking for Guinea Pigs? A pet Rat habitat? Tips on caring for a Ferret? Timothy hay treats for your rabbit? Uncle Bill’s carries a wide variety of small animals and small animal supplies so you can find your perfect pet and everything you need to take care of it.

Unsure which small pet is right for you? Stop in at any of our pet stores in Indianapolis, Greenwood, Fishers, Zionsville, or Fort Wayne to chat with one of our friendly associates. There’s sure to be a store near you where you can find a new small friend to bring home and ask any questions you may have about small animals from Guinea Pigs to Gerbils and beyond.

Choosing a Small Animal

It can be difficult to decide what small animal is the right pet for you. Gerbils are popular pets in elementary school classrooms because they’re easy to care for and can live comfortably in a small enclosure. Sugar Gliders, however, require a large cage, daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables, lots of attention, and prefer to live in pairs.

We can help you choose your small pet based on factors such as:

  • Time – Sociable and inquisitive small animals such as Ferrets and Rats do best in homes where the owner has plenty of time to interact with them. Ferrets also need about four hours of time outside their cage every day, which means their owners will need to spend time “ferret-proofing” the house or a room since Ferrets love to explore all areas of their environment.

  • Budget – The cost of small animal cages, supplies, and food varies depending on the type of pet you choose.

  • Household environment – Some small animals may become distressed around Dogs, Cats, or small children. Often, what matters more than an animal’s species is its individual temperament. For example, Dogs that don’t have a strong predatory instinct may be able to become friends with Rabbits.
