Hi, I’m Bitter Sweet
Did you know that mice make great, interactive pets? Like any animal, the more positive human interaction they experience, the more comfortable they will be around us. Although mice don't need long walks like dogs, or giant scratching towers around the house like cats, they still require physical exercise and mental stimulation to keep them happy and healthy, just on a smaller scale. You can get creative with your toilet paper rolls, tissue and cereal boxes to make fun new hidey holes and tunnels for your mice to explore. Twigs and branches also make great enrichment toys. Mice require a constant supply of high quality rodent mix as well as fresh fruit and veggies.
RSPCA currently have a large number of mice of varying colours, age and breed (some with tails some without) looking for homes.. Please note that the exact mouse in the picture may no longer be available, so in your online adoption application, please note any aesthetic preferences you may have.
Our mice are generally adopted in pairs, as they do enjoy the company of their own species. Adoption applications must have a photo of the enclosure attached, which needs to be large enough to allow the mice to get away from each other for 'alone' time if they choose.
Adoption price $10 a pair
- A property check may be required before ADOPTION to ensure the safety and welfare of adoption animals. Rental agreements allowing pets will be required for adoptions into rental properties. Differential pricing may apply.
- The website is live and updates frequently, there is a chance that by the time you have completed the Apply to Adopt form the animal you have an interest in might have been adopted by another party.
- While our shelters are open, not every pet available for adoption will be onsite and available in person. To express your interest, Apply to Adopt online and if it's a perfect match you will be shortlisted and contacted via phone by our Adoption Team to discuss the animal in detail.
