Guinea Pigs

Brownie

Name: Brownie
Species: Guinea pig
Sex: Male (neutered 13.01.21)
Age: Approx 7 months

Brownie came into our care after he and his brother had been mis-sold to his previous humans as female who didn’t realise until babies had occurred. The two brothers fell out and Brownie came to us to find new friends.

Brownie was neutered on 13th January and will be safe to be introduced to females from 24th February (6-weeks post-neuter).

Due to lockdown restrictions, adopters must live within 1 hours drive of our location in Sale, M33 postcode. We provide a full bonding service at our home-run rescue.

Housing requirements: INDOORS only.
A pair of guinea pigs will need a minimum of 20 sq ft of space.

Rabbits

Ruben

Name: Ruben
Species: Rabbit
Breed: Netherland dwarf
Sex: Male
Age: Guesstimate 18 months
Status: RESERVED

Ruben is a typical speedy nethie who is not that keen on interacting humans but is very confident in exploring his enclosure and making full use of the space/enrichment he is provided with.

Ruben has been fully vaccinated against myxomatosis, RVHD1 and RHVD2, microchipped and neutered (02/02/21). He will be ready to bond with a fully vaccinated and neutered female bun from 16/03/21. We provide a full bonding service at our home-based rescue where the adopters existing rabbit comes to stay with us so we can supervise the bonding process. Adopters will need to live within 1 hours drive of our location in Sale (M33 postcode).

Ruben did have a couple of small molar spurs, which is sadly very common for nethies, which were burred down while he was under anaesthetic for his neuter. He does enjoy hay, so hopefully on a hay-based diet his dental health will now be much better.

Housing requirements: Permanent 24/7 access to a minimum 60sq ft space for a pair of buns. Ruben is used to living outdoors, but can live indoors or outdoors in his new home. Please check our housing advice pages prior to applying to ensure you can meet our requirements: https://www.tinypawsmcr.org.uk/advice/rabbits/

Guinea Pigs

Ghost & Nym

Name: Ghost & Nym
Species: Guinea Pigs
Sex: Male
Age: Ghost – approx 4 years, Nym – approx 4.5 years
Status: RESERVED

Ghost & Nym are a lovely pair of boys who were adopted last year but unfortunately had to be returned to us due to a change in circumstances. They are hoping to find their forever home this time!

Nym has a long-term issue with a runny/crusty right eye, which has been checked by an exotics vet and doesn’t require any treatment other than giving it a little wipe clean. He also has age related cataracts, but these don’t seem to cause him any issues and he potters around just fine.

Both pigs are, unsurprisingly, very food orientated and not fans of being picked up and will run away from approaching hands, but settle well for a cuddle once caught.

Housing requirements: The boys are looking for an indoor enclosure, with at least 20sq ft of space.

Mice

Cherry, Maple, Flora, Fauna, Maleficent & Merryweather

Name: Cherry, Maple, Flora, Fauna, Maleficent & Merryweather
Species: Multimammates
Sex: Female
Age: Cherry – approx 9 months, Maple – approx 6 months, Flora/Fauna/Maleficent/Merryweather – approx 1 year
Status: Available for adoption

These 6 ladies are typical super speedy multimammates who don’t really enjoy being handled and can give a good nip if they feel the need to. Flora, Fauna, Maleficient & Merryweather are the most confident of the bunch and will sometimes allow us to pick them up and have a little stroke.

They are, however, very smart and agile and really fun to watch.

The girls will need a confident rodent carer who understands and respects that they are much wilder than fancy mice and not easy to handle. They can be adopted as a group of 6, or in trios, and could join a single male fancy mouse for company (they cannot interbreed).

Minimum housing requirement: 100x50cm with a 28cm wheel.

*PLEASE NOTE we are currently only able to consider homes within 1 hour’s drive of our location in Sale, M33, due to lockdown restrictions*

Chinchillas

Pumpkin

Name: Pumpkin
Species: Chinchilla
Sex: Female
Age: Unknown but guesstimate >3 years

Sassy little lady Pumpkin is looking for a home with a friend to bond with again!

Sadly she did not want to get along with the lovely neutered male she went to bond with a few months ago, and we haven’t been able to bond her with the other female chin we have here, Pie, either, but we are hopeful the right friend is out there for her somewhere and won’t give up on her finding company just yet!

If you have a female or neutered male chinny looking for a friend, are within 1 hour’s drive of our location in Sale, M33 postcode and have a chin setup that meets our minimum requirement of 90x60x123 (liberta explorer size) we would love to hear from you!

Mice

Oak, Ash, Rowan & Juniper

Name: Oak, Ash, Rowan & Juniper
Species: Multimammates
Sex: Male
Age: Approx 6 months (Oak) and 3 months (Ash, Rowan & Juniper)
Status: Available for adoption

Oak and his sons Ash, Rowan and Juniper are typical super speedy multimammates who don’t enjoy being handled and can give a good nip if they feel the need to.

They are, however, very smart and agile and really fun to watch. Oak is the most confident of the group and has started coming to the cage door for food, so this will be the way to his heart! Hopefully, his sons will begin to follow his lead and grow in confidence as they get older.

The boys will need a confident rodent carer who understands and respects that they are much wilder than fancy mice and not easy to handle.

Minimum housing requirement: 100x50cm with a 28cm wheel.

*PLEASE NOTE we are currently only able to consider homes within 1 hour’s drive of our location in Sale, M33, due to lockdown restrictions*

Mice

Nix, Callisto, Puck & Atlas

Name: Nix, Callisto, Puck & Atlas
Species: Fancy mice
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: Approx 6 months
Status: Available for Adoption

More meece boys! These 4 have been together since birth and are still very good friends so we would like them to stay as a group. They have all been neutered to reduce the chances of any falling out and to allow easy introductions to new friends should any of them end up alone at any stage of their lives.

The 3 fuzzy boys, Nix, Callisto and Atlas have had URIs and will possibly be prone to flare ups in the future (as is quite common in mice), while Puck never seems to be affected. They seem to do best on cardboard bedding (e.g. bedkind or Fitch) which we find to be the least dusty, so would need to be kept on this in their new home.

Puck is the shyest, speediest of the boys while Nix, Callisto and Atlas are easier to handle.

Housing requirements: The boys currently live happily together in an Alaska cage so would like to be rehomed to live in something this size or bigger.

Adoption fee: Minimum £50 donation for the group (the boys cost us £200 in total to neuter)
