Important Note

Smokey is best friends with Madison. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Smoky and Madison are a pair that met here in the rescue. Madison was part of a group of five that were rescued by a gentleman, from a friends apartment. Their owner unexpectedly went into the hospital, leaving behind his chinchillas...but no one knew they were there for a little while. They did suffer from lack of food and stress-induced fur chewing, but that has all cleared up since their time here. Madison is pretty and healthy, and a little on the shy side...but that is because she is so young.

Smokey is a mother chin who was living with her daughter. Unfortunately the daughter passed away leaving Smokey friendless. When introduced, these two bonded instantly! Smokey has helped Madison become more confident and they have been wonderful together ever since.

These girls will be a great addition to most families, including a first time adopter. They are eager to please and gaining trust with people very quickly! They LOVE to eat!!


About Chin Friends Chinchilla Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Chin Friends Chinchilla Rescue was started because the exotic pet trade in our country is busier than ever before. With the availability of these animals, many people impulse-purchase them, not realizing the commitment they are making. It gets overwhelming for some, and others didn’t quite realize the financial commitment or time commitment. Some people just lose interest, or their lifestyle changes and the pet does not fit in anymore. There are not many resources for people with exotic pets, and we aim to provide that for chinchilla owners.

We also realize great pet owners are made- not born that way, and each one of our adopters will have access to help, suggestions and any support they may need in the future.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our chinchillas are in private foster home, so we do not allow the general public to see the chinchillas without first filling out the adoption application. Once an adopter is approved, we will be happy to set up a private meeting so you can meet any chinchillas you are interested in adopting.

Our Adoption Process...

Unlike some rescues, we do not require a home inspection. We do require that you are prepared to agree to some basic expectations, including providing a proper cage, veterinary care from an exotic specialist, air conditioning, and a clean, quiet, smoke-free environment.

There is an adoption application available for download on our web site, and there is a $100 adoption fee per chinchilla. After filling out an application, one of our volunteers will speak with you for more information.
