Myshkin's Info...

Myshkin's Story...
We have an extreme mosaic male chinchilla looking for his new home. His name is Myshkin. Myshkin was born in December 2008, and is approximately 6 years old.

Myshkin is a sweet chinchilla. He is curious and likes to explore. He comes to the front of the cxage when you open the door, so he can see what is going on. He does well with being handled and petted. He does not bite.

He enjoys playtime and running around, though he’s not super active like some chinchillas can be.

Myshkin would do well as a “first chinchilla” for someone who has never had one before.

Myshkin has gotten along with other chinchillas in the past. However, he is currently housed alone, and we cannot guarantee that he will get along with your chinchilla.

As with all of our chinchillas/rescues, Myshkin 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.

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

The adoption fee for Myshkin is $100

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Myshkin, 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.
