Essex Breeding Centre is an established business owned by Phil and Gail Gibbs since June 1998. We breed and deliver a variety of small animals throughout the UK.

During our time here, we have expanded the business and we now breed on our site Syrian, Russian and Chinese and Roborovskii hamster, fancy rats, gerbil guinea pigs and our latest addition, fancy mice.

As a licensed breeder, we are inspected by the local authority and issued with a pet shop licence.
