Sparta's Story...
Please visit and contact us through our main website ONLY. We will direct any inquiries through adoptapet back to our main site. Adoptapet is a partner organization. They do not arrange for adoptions. Visit this link to see our adoption policy and procedure:

One of the countless chinchillas named "Chi-Chi". This one has been to us twice. Both as a result of owners who simply lost interest. Unfortunately, it's partly Chi-Chi's fault. He's just not the nicest of chinchillas. Now we don't want to sugarcoat the dim qualities of the available chinchillas. Our reputation is at risk if we were to do so. This adult, standard grey male does not get along with other chinchillas, and is rather grumpy towards people. HOWEVER, we have seen in the past where certain "problem" chinchillas bloom in the right home. Our shelter does not provide nearly enough loving attention to see that happen.

Adoption fee: $125 including starter cage.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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