We will welcome some adorable non-gerbil rodent friends and offer information and education on their history, habitats and care as pets. Coordinator: Leslie Balch.

Beautiful craft items, useful gerbil supplies, adorable novelties and more, to benefit the AGS! In past years we have had wonderful items from books to jewelry to quilts to gerbil supplies. We need your donations large and small!

Gerbil Agility

Watch this fast-growing new "sport" within the gerbil showing world. Ch. Twin Squeaks' Herman was the first to bring gerbil show jumping to the national consciousness with his famous You Tube Video.
