Meet Minerva

Due to health and safety concerns, we are now pursuing adoptions with additional safety measures in place. We will be asking potential adopters to discuss their individual preferences and comfort levels involving safety precautions during the greeting/adoption day step. We are HIGHLY suggesting all participants wear facial coverings, stay at least six feet apart, & use sanitization of all surfaces, and hands before and after contact.

Estimated birth date: 5/20/2020

Personality: Inquisitive, Playful, Energetic, Nervous, Mouthy (puts mouth on you but does not bite down, usually thinking your fingers are food), Hesitant but not really fearful

Favorite treats: Banana

Favorite toys and activities: Rearranging, digging tunnels under the egg carton/cereal box, and logs. Destroying stuffed toilet paper tubes. Not the acrobat that’s Delores is—possibly because Minerva is more skittish and less treat motivated.

Potty trained: Haven’t tried

This animal daily routine: Minerva hasn’t developed a daily routine yet!

BFF (Does this animal have or need a same species friend in their home?): Yes! Minerva is bonded to Sarah & Delores!

Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Her foster’s dog watches her in the bin but she doesn’t seem to notice him.

Health concerns: None

Behavioral concerns: Sarah is in our trust training program for her shy behavior towards humans, while Minerva & Dolores are in our trust training program for mouthy behavior when approached by hands. Learn more about our trust training methods at https://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/trust-training Her foster talks quietly, reaching out with treats and allowing her to come to her. Being calm and patient. She’s getting more and more used to her foster and will typically pop up to say hi even if she doesn’t always climb into her hand.

Trust Training Update 1/11/2021 - Minerva comes out for treats and allows herself to pick her up. Her foster is quiet and careful to avoid fast movements.

Other notes: She’s nervous and just needs some patience. Delores helps her to be brave!

Minerva, Dolores, & Sarah came to MNPPR after being found outside along with several other mice in a small dirty cage. When their rescuer could no longer afford vet care, they were transferred into our care.

Due to our rescue being foster-based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. Minerva’s foster parent prefers to meet at the Chuck & Don's Pet Food & Supplies - 14109 Highway 13 S, Ste 109, Savage, MN 55378 or PetSmart - 14290 Plymouth Ave, Burnsville, MN 55337 for meet & greets, & adoptions.

Our adoption process can be found on our website here: https://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/process

Fee: Sarah, Minerva & Dolores have a combined adoption fee of $11.

We absolutely DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS! Please do not ask.
