Rescues for Adoption

***UPDATE*** (November 14, 2020): We frequently have rescues or owner-surrenders available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting, please e-mail me at

Rescues and owner-surrendered chins are available for adoption on a PET-ONLY basis. They are not to be bred or put in breeding situations. We ask a rehoming fee for each chin to help cover care, feed, and housing for these chins. The rehoming fee also ensures we are able to provide assistance to neglected or ill chinchillas in the future.

Adoption Fees:

$50 - standard gray

$75 - mutation color


$50 adoption fee

3 yr old standard gray male - Chillie was surrendered to us in May 2020 as his owner had developed some health issues that would be making it difficult for her to continue caring for him. He is a sweet and energetic boy and is looking for a home where he will be loved and spoiled.

Visited our Adopted Chinchillas page to see more chins who have found loving "fur-ever"homes!

Interested in Adopting?

Looking for a furry friend to adopt and give a second chance? Please take the time to fill out this chin questionnaire so we can get an idea of your chin experience and knowledge. Our intention is to find the most caring homes for our rescue chins as some have had questionable pasts, have no health or genetic histories, and need the care and companionship of a human ready to make a commitment. We ask an adoption fee to help cover the costs of vet bills, medications, and care necessities, and to ensure a serious home. Rescue chins are NOT to be bred due to unknown health histories and pasts. An adoption contract must be filled out to complete the adoption process. I reserve the right to cancel any adoption up until the chin has been picked up or delivered. For more information, please contact us at
