Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are one of the only chinchilla rescues in the state of Florida. We mainly serve North Florida and South Georgia but do often take in, and adopt out chinchillas outside these areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small home based rescue and have been taking in chinchillas for 4 years. We take in approximately 4-7 chinchillas a month. All chinchillas are given a vet visit to check their health, and then they remain in our care for at least 30 days to verify the health status and behaviour of the animal. At any given time we usually have around 10 chinchillas in our care.

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 bordeom and to keep their feeth filed down. We use large cages for our rescues and they get daily out of cage time.

Come Meet our Pets:

Since we are a home based rescue we do not have a specific time to come see the animals for adoption. Please email us, or give us a call to make an appointment to come by.

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.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $75 for one chinchilla or $125 for a pair. The adoption fee includes a 3 month supply of food, loose hay, and hay cubes. Also included is a 75 page care binder, treats, chew sticks, Blue Cloud dust, a dust bath house, and either a hanging chew toy or a fleece hammock.

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.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
