Scampy's Info...

Scampy's Story...
We have a young standard grey male chinchilla looking for his new home. His name is Scampy. Scampy is approximately 11 months old.

Scampy is a sweet boy. He was dropped off at a shelter, due to lack of time to care for him. He was transferred to this rescue, since we handle almost exclusively chinchillas.

He is a sweet boy. He does well with being handled and petted. He does not bite. He’s active, as your average chinchilla is, but not overly so.

He’s do well as a “first chinchilla” for someone who has never had one before.

We do not know if Scampy gets along with other chinchillas.

As with all of our chinchillas/rescues, Scampy 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.
He will also come with a lifetime of help and support, should you ever need it. If more supplies are needed, we also sell everything from hammocks to cages and everything in between – anything you could possibly need or want for your new chinchilla.

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.

Scampy is located in Hammond, Indiana (zip code 46324).

The adoption fee for Scampy is $110

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scampy, 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.
