Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
If a chinchilla is found to have an on going health or behavorial issue they remain in our home indefinitely.
All of our rescue chinchillas are treated exactly the same as our pets. Each chinchilla has a chin safe wheel, fleece items to sleep on and cuddle with, and unlimited wood chews to keep away the boredom and to keep their teeth filed down. We use large cages for our rescues and they get daily out of cage time.
We do periodically participate in pet expos and adoption days at PetSmart. We also often work with other small animal rescues in the Jacksonville area.
We require anyone interested in adopting a chinchilla to fill out our adoption application. We check personal references and a vet reference as well. If the application is approved we have a contract that has to be signed upon pickup of your new furry friend. Not all applications are approved. We are not a "first come, first serve" shelter. We only adopt out our animals to people we feel will give them the best home possible.
Why should you adopt?
small animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a small animal for sale or finding a small animal breeder, adopting a small animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a small animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a small animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your small animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a small animal. There are different types of small animals including Chinchilla, Degu, Ferret, Gerbil, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Hedgehog, Mouse, Prairie Dog, Rat, Skunk, and Sugar Glider.
