Criadero Pepe Hámster —a company devoted to breeding hamsters— was founded in May 1986 by Pepe Vallejo-García.

Located in Guadalajara Mexico, and with a production of over 600 hamsters per week, the business required the work of 4 people.

During the years of 1986 and 1994, thousands of hamsters were produced and distributed all around the country.

In December 1994, the enterprise was closed down due to Mr. Vallejo's broader stage ambitions.
