The mice are currently in slightly larger groups but can be rehomed in smaller groups of threes or fours, mice are very social-able and need to stay with friends.
Mice are very small and can be very active but tend to prefer night time. They need lots of hiding spots and will build small nests out of their bedding, the more mice you have in one cage the more you will need to clean it, so keeping 3-4 mice in one cage means you should be cleaning them once a week or so. Mice require fresh water daily and food which usually consists of mice nuggets - this may look bland but is generally better for your mice then mixed food or muesli as they will tend to be selective on this diet and may not be getting what they need!
If you would like to rehome some of our resident mice then please contact the Centre or visit us on Abbey Street. We are open 12.00pm-4.00pm everyday (except Wednesdays) and will be happy to help.
Thank you so much for your interest in adopting an Abbey Street rescue pet.
We are happy to announce that we will still be taking reservations on the animals, however due to the current restrictions in place we are unable to give a time frame for viewing and adoption.
If you would still be interested please enquire today and we will send you a perfect match form to complete. Animals will be matched to the most suitable home.
In the meantime, if you would like to help us in these difficult times by donating towards the care of our animals here is the link https://rspcaderby.org.uk/donate
