Gigi's Info...

Gigi's Story...
We have a standard grey female chinchilla looking for her new home. Her name is Gigi. Gigi is going to be 3 years old this upcoming February.

Gigi is a sweet chinchilla, but would do best in a home that has chinchilla experience. She does not like the sensation of being picked up, so she sometimes tries to nip or spray to avoid being picked up. However, once you are holding her, she is very sweet and does well being held.

She is very energetic and loves to be let out for playtime. She can run and run and run. She would do best in a home that either plans to let her out for playtime often or has a wheel for her to get her energy out on.

Gigi does NOT get along with other chinchillas, so she must be housed separately.

As with all of our chinchillas/rescues, Gigi will come with 2 pounds of food to start you out (Mazuri pellets), a baggy of chews/treats, and a printed out version of our care packet. She will also come with a lifetime of help and support, should you ever need it. If more supplies are needed, we also sell our popular Starter Package ($25) which includes 5 pounds of food, 2 pounds of dust, 24 oz of hay, a baggie of chews/treats, and a hanging toy. We also offer a variety of other supplies for sale, including cages (new and used), chew toys, and hidey houses.

Regardless of past chinchilla experience, all potential homes will be asked to read our chinchilla care packet and fill out our adoption application/chinchilla questionnaire. If you are unwilling to do this, please do not waste our time or yours. No chinchilla will go to a new home without an adoption application being filled out - no exceptions.

Gigi is located in Munster, Indiana (zip code 46321).

Gigi’s adoption fee is $75

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gigi, a Hammond Chinchilla was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chinchilla for sale in Hammond, or seeking a Chinchilla from a breeder in Hammond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hammond already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hammond breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chinchilla breeders who help with Chinchilla rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hammond paves the way for another one to be saved.
