Important Note

Ambrosia is best friends with Abba. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Abba and Ambrosia are sisters with a little bit of an age difference. They are quite calm older chinchillas, and are used to being around other animals like dogs and cats. They are not going to be happy in a loud, active home where kids are holding them- these two girls would prefer a calm, adult only household. They are very sweet, very healthy and very FAT girls, who will be a welcome addition for anyone looking for two mellow chins to share their home with. Ambrosia is the shy older sister, while Abba is definitely the bossier, more daring girl!

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.
