Moonstone Gerbils

Adoption Policy


  • Complete an Adoption Contract.
  • Provide verification of home ownership or landlord’s consent.


  • If you are unable to pick up your mouse(mice) within one week you may place a non-refunadable deposit to hold them until an arranged date. After that date the mice will be placed up for adoption.

Adoption Contract

  • Moonstone Gerbils does not warrant the health or behavior of these mice. Katie Johnson and MSG assume no liability for the animals, nor for any harm or damage they may cause. By adopting these mice, the adopter accepts all responsibility.
  • By applying to adopt these mice, I commit to their lifetime care, which I understand may be two years or more. If for any reason I can no longer keep these mice, provide for their needs, or provide a new mouse companion for a bereaved doe, I agree to relinquish them to Moonstone Gerbils. I agree to provide them with adequate food, water, housing, attention, and veterinary care as needed.

Health Policy

During the first two weeks if the mouse(mice) need veternary care due to illness they must be returned to me, or taken directly to Dr. Joseph Pocher at the Natick Animal Clinic in Natick, MA or another approved vet to be treated.

Return Policy

  • During the first two weeks after adopting your mouse(mice) you may return them for any reason for a full refund.
  • After two weeks you may return the mice for any reason without a refund. We encourage you to donate their cage and supplies as this will make finding them a new home easier.
