Mice & related species

Mice need plenty of space and things to do, and are really intelligent and fun to watch! Cage size requirements will depend upon the size of the group you are interested in adopting, but as a guide for a trio of mice would need a minimum cage size of 80x50cm with narrow bar spacing. Bigger than the minimum is always better if you have the space! Please read through our mouse care advice pages before applying to adopt.

Prior to adoption we will carry out an online set-up check, to ensure the housing requirements for the animal you wish to adopt will be met.

Mice adopted from us must not be bred from under any circumstances.

Our adoption fee for mice is a £10 minimum donation (£20 for a neutered male – our neutering costs are £50 per mouse) to help cover the costs of caring for the animals at Tiny Paws MCR. Group adoptions will be discounted.

  • Bilberry, Blackberry & Cranberry

    Name: Bilberry, Blackberry & Cranberry
    Species: Fancy mice
    Sex: Male (neutered)
    Age: 3-4 months old.
    Status: Available for Adoption

    Bilberry, Blackberry & Cranberry are a trio of neutered male mice brothers who have been together since birth. We had them all neutered to allow them to carry on living together with a drastically reduced chance of any fighting/fall outs as they mature.

    All 3 boys are quite speedy, but are curious and love their food so should become tamer over time with a patient adopter.

    Minimum housing requirement: 80x50cm with plenty of enrichment, a 20cm wheel and safe substrate.

  • Sesame & Barley

    Name: Sesame & Barley
    Species: Fancy mice
    Sex: Male (neutered)
    Age: born 9th Feb 2021.
    Status: RESERVED

    Sesame & Barley are a pair of neutered male mice brothers who have been together since birth. We had them both neutered to allow them to carry on living together with a drastically reduced chance of any fighting/fall outs as they mature.

    Sesame is almost hairless, with just a fine covering of white fuzz, and Barley is the lovely white furred boy. Sesame is the more confident of the two but both will need a patient adopter who is happy to work on their taming.

    Mice do best in groups, so ideally these boys would like to join one or more mice (we could try bonding them with some of the other groups we have here if you are interested in them but don’t already have mice).

    Our minimum housing requirement for up to 4 mice is 80x50cm. Bigger groups will need a larger setup.

  • Mulberry, Snowberry, Currant, Blueberry & Raspberry

    Name: Mulberry, Snowberry, Currant, Blueberry & Raspberry
    Species: Fancy mice
    Sex: Female
    Age: Guesstimate 3-6 months
    Status: All now RESERVED

    These girls came to us from a large case where someone started out with 2 mis-sexed mice and ended up with 160!

    All of these ladies have now passed their pregnancy watch with no more babies so are ready to be adopted. On arrival they were quite sneezy and snuffly but thankfully this cleared up after a course of antibiotics. They can be adopted as a group of 5 or in a trio and a pair (to join other mice).

    Housing requirements: Minimum 100x50cm for the group of 5 with plenty of enrichment, hideys, climbing ropes, and a min 20cm wheel.
