Mice

Triton

Name: Triton
Species: Fancy Mouse
Sex: Male (neutered)
Age: Approx 6 months
Status: Reserved

Triton came into our care as part of a large intake of mice from one household, where a number of accidental litters had occurred due to mis-sexing.

We have had Triton neutered so that he can join some female mice, and he will be ready to start intros from 18th August. Triton is quite speedy, but loves his food, so this will be the way to his heart! He won’t be rehomed to live alone, as mice are social animals.

Hamsters

Rocky

Name: Rocky
Species: Syrian Hamster
Sex: Male
Age: Approx 10 months
Status: Available for adoption from 7th August

Rocky came into our care due to his previous human’s lack of time. He can be a little shy at first but is generally fine with calm handling.

Rocky will need a set-up that is at least 80x50cm at the base (bigger than this is always better if possible), with a 28cm wheel and plenty of safe substrate for burrowing in. Please check our hamster care advice pages before applying to adopt.

Gerbils

Lunar & Eclipse

Name: Lunar (grey) & Eclipes (Black & white)
Species: Gerbils
Sex: Female
Age: 1 year
Status: Available for adoption from 4th August

Hello Lunar & Eclipse! These two 1 year old girlies will be looking for their forever home soon.

They are typical busy gerbils and are fast to catch but good at being handled once you’ve got hold of them. They will need a large tank setup with sufficient safe substrate for burrowing in.

Check out our gerbil advice pages for more info on suitable gerbil setups (spoiler: this doesn’t include the popular ‘gerbilariums’ sold by our favourite national pet shop chain, because they’re terrible): https://www.tinypawsmcr.org.uk/advice/gerbils/
