Adoptable Chinchillas



Because there are so many chinchillas looking for homes, we unfortunately do not have room for all of them. We already have many chinchillas that live at our rescue and we are asked to take an average of 30 chinchillas a month. The homeless crisis is very prevalant in the Northeast and increasing in other parts of the country. To try to help people who need to re-home their chinchillas, we do a Courtesy Listing for them. This means we will list chinchillas from other states, as well as CT who need homes, but are still currently living with their guardians. At the beginning of the listing, I tell you what state the chinchilla is currenly living in, so please keep this in mind as you will be the one to travel to where the chinchilla is located to adopt him/her.

You will still need to fill out an Adoption Application with our rescue regardless of whether the chinchilla lives here or not. Please read our page "Are You Right for a Chinchilla?" before applying along with the Adoption Policy page. These are wonderful animals, but they do require specific care and with proper care/diet can live 15-20 years! Because of this they are not the best companions for everyone or every enviroment.

Please Note: Chinchillas that are a bonded pair may be listed separately (individual photos), but will have the names of those who must be adopted together.

Currently, because of the high demand of chinchilla surrenders, ALL chinchillas listed are Courtesy Listings. None of the listed chins are living at our rescue.
