Could you provide a forever home for an Aleysha, Atlanta, Beatrice, Becky or a Bonny?
Or maybe an Emma, a Gina, Heidi, Holly, a Jess or Louise? Or how about a Millie, Sophie and Tabitha?
This may sound like a great list of wonderful girl names – but there are some furry faces behind them as they belong to 14 female pet mice that staff at RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre near Colwyn Bay are currently caring for.
The majority of them were born in RSPCA care following the abandonment of 40 mice – many of them pregnant – back in December. The mice were found in a brown cardboard box in Chester Oaks. Following their discovery the mice were then taken to RSPCA centres at Bryn-Y-Maen, Stapeley Grange and Gonsal Farm for rehabilitation and care.
Chris Butler, animal centre supervisor from RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, said: “We have already rehomed many of the mice that came into our care following this abandonment, but as many of them were pregnant, they have multiplied.
“We are now looking for homes for 14 young females, who we’d like to rehome in small groups of four. They are all really sweet and are very handleable.
“Owning a mouse can be very rewarding and we really want these lovely little creatures to go to loving new homes. If anyone is interested please get in touch with us.”
If anyone is interested in rehoming an animal please head down to the RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen centre at Upper Colwyn Bay (LL28 5EJ) – which is open between 11am-4pm every day except Wednesday. Or you can speak to a member of staff on 0300 123 0745.
