Reason: Current care giver actually rescued her only to find out that she was female, thus could not bond with his male chinchilla. The rescuer is acting as a foster placement until a permeant home is found. Located in Brampton.

Description: Nikola is very smart and mischievous. She will find a way to escape the play areas while you’re not watching her. Compared to other chinchillas, she is extremely agile, willing to jump from much greater distances than the others, with seemingly with no problems. She is not a big fan of being held but she will lay down and sleep on you. She will consistently come up and ask for her neck scratches.


About Little Friends Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Vision Statement: Little Friends Rescue is building refuge for rodents and lagomorphs in danger of either perishing as a stray or being euthanized in shelters in Ontario and Quebec. We also offer support for owned pets through education and rehoming services.

Mission: Our aim is to create a no-kill community for small animals through our rescue efforts as well as public education.

Little Friends Rescue (LFR) is a non-profit small animal rescue that is dedicated to helping small animals in our community. LFR rehomes, rehabilitates and provides hospice care for rabbits and other domestic rodents. The small animals that enter LFR usually come from laboratories, high volume shelters, emergency owner surrenders or are found abandoned.

LFR was founded in 2015 by Rebecca Feddema and Corey Arsenault. It began with rescuing a small group of rats and has now grown into Southern Ontario's largest rodent rescue. LFR is currently operating through a series of foster homes based in Southern Ontario and aims to have a shelter location open in early 2017.

LFR currently offers refuge for rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, rabbits, and chinchillas.

Our work is made possible by the donations of our generous supporters and our team of hard working volunteers.
