dark tan female chinchilla's Story...
We have a dark tan female chinchilla who’s looking for her new home. This chinchilla is what’s known as a “culled breeder” – she was used for breeding at a large ranch, and when she no longer was producing babies, she was pulled from breeding, and was going to be put down. Rather than have her meet that fate, we took in her, and about 15 other females from that location, and now they are slowly becoming available to pet homes!

This dark tan female is an energetic girl! She loves bouncing around her cage and checking everything out. I put her in a more open cage for pictures, and she was bouncing around and popcorning everywhere – she would probably just adore the pet life! This girl is relatively easy to catch, and when you hold her, she actually sits pretty nicely in your arms to be petted. However, she is definitely a curious girl, and would likely enjoy the pet life with a multi-shelf cage and all sorts of fun things to explore and chew on. Very sweet girl, doesn’t bite.

This female was born in 2012, making her right about 4 years old. Her color is called dark tan, which gives her a chocolate-y color all over her body, including her belly.

She would make a great “first chinchilla” for someone who’s never had one before.

This chinchilla is currently caged alone, and we do not know how she would do with other chinchillas. If you are interested in pairing her up with your, or one of our, chinchillas, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. However, we make no guarantees that any two chinchillas will get along.

This chinchilla will come with some food to start you out (Tradition pellets), a goodie bag of chews/treats, and a printed out version of our care packet. She will also come with a lifetime of help and support, should you ever need it. If more supplies are needed, we also sell a variety of chinchilla supplies, from cages to hidey houses to hammocks and everything in between.

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.

This dark tan female chinchilla is located in Hammond, Indiana (zip code 46324). Sorry, but we do not ship.

This dark tan female chinchilla’s adoption fee is $100

Why Adoption is a Great Option

dark tan female chinchilla, 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.
