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: RESERVED

    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.
