My story

Mycena is a very special little animal. Neither a mouse nor a rat, she is an African soft-furred rat, also known as a multi-mammate mouse. While extraordinarily cute and fun to watch, Mycena is not a fan of being handled, but is slowly learning to trust humans. Her foster parent is using Mycena's favorite snacks to win her over: meal worms and sunflower seeds. She enjoys snuggling and playing with her sister Chanterelle and the two need to be adopted together.  

Mycena needs an adopter who is experienced in rodent care and will understand her wild nature. She will not make a good companion for children. Her adoption fee is $25 and potential adopters will be carefully screened to make sure she does not end up as snake food. If you are interested in adopting Mycena, please email us at mice@smallangelsrescue.org

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Small Angels Rescue’s adoption process is straightforward. Adopters must fill out an adoption application. There is an application for guinea pigs and a separate application for other animals. Once we have the completed application, we interview the adopter by phone or e-mail to clear up any questions and concerns about the application—including whether the adopter meets our cage requirements and has the proper supplies—and to ensure that the adopter has all of the information needed to properly care for the animal. At the time of adoption, adopters must sign an adoption contract. Adoption fees: Mice, Gerbils, Hamsters & Rats: $10 each for the first three animals, then $5 each thereafter. Guinea Pigs: $45 each unaltered, $65 neutered males, $80 spayed females, $90 bonded pairs.

Go meet their pets

Small Angels Rescue does not have a physical shelter; rather we care for animals through our network of foster care homes. As such, adoptions are scheduled by appointment only at times and locations agreed upon by the rescue and the adopter.

More about this rescue

Small Angels was founded in fall of 2003 when the organizers recognized a need for a group to help small animals abandoned at animal shelters. The Rescue was founded as a way to move these animals into foster homes for socialization and proper, attentive care, as well as streamline the adoption process and provide accurate, thorough information to adopters about these often misunderstood animals. Small Angels is a 501(3)(3) nonprofit, no‐kill, all‐volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming guinea pigs, rats and hamsters. Animals are acquired directly via public surrenders and from local shelters and animal welfare groups. We use an extensive network of foster homes to care for the animals until we can find them a forever home.
