The National Gerbil Society (previously known as The National Mongolian Gerbil Society) is a British society for the promotion of Gerbils and Jirds as pets, and exhibition animals. Overseas members are invited. The Society was founded in 1970. All members receive a journal sent by post containing the latest gerbil news, details of shows and events, show reports, articles, reviews and information on gerbil care.
Members can exhibit at one of our shows held in various parts of Great Britain. At our shows exhibitors compete for trophies and rosettes. Most importantly our shows are fun and give our members an opportunity to meet others who keep and breed gerbils.
This new site will be developing over coming weeks and replacing the old NGS website.
Check out details of our next show here.

I am trying to add new content from the old NGS site every day. So far most of the health and sexing info has been transferred over. Keep dropping in and you should find new content every day.
