Chili's Story...
Age: 6/7/2010

Personality: Friendly toward humans, Friendly toward other animals, Sweet

Favorite treats: Dandelion drops and Crasins

Favorite toys and activities: Running around the house exploring

Potty trained: No

BFF: He is friendly towards other animals and would be happy joining another chinchilla in a home but would also be happy as an only pet with enough attention.

Other species pet has been exposed to and reaction: He likes to play tag with our cat, visits our pair of guinea pigs in their cage and steals their hay, and completely ignores the dog (small critters make her nervous so she prefers to stay as still as possible while Chili runs over her paws)

Health concerns: Chili was recently diagnosed with malocclusion. Since his teeth are unable to grind against each other properly he will need regular dental check ups to manage his condition.

Behavioral concerns: No.

Other notes: Chili is a total sweetie. Before he came to us he was a classroom pet so he is used to lots of people looking at him and saying hi, he even prefers to get his chin scratches through the cage bars (something that is VERY RARELY recommended). He prefers exploring to cuddling but will happily climb on your hand for his evening treat.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Paul 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 St. Paul 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 St. Paul paves the way for another one to be saved.
