8m dark tan male chinchilla's Story...
We have tan male chinchilla who’s looking for his new home. He came to NWI a little bit ago, and is now ready to leave and go to a family of his own.

He was born around 7/4/16, making him right around 8 months old. His color is called tan, which is a medium brown color all the way around. Whereas most chins have a white belly, tans have an ebony gene, which wraps the tan color all the way around their body, including their belly.

This chin is a curious boy. He comes up to the front of the cage to see what you're doing. When you’re holding him, he usually sits nicely in your arms, though he does have some bursts of energy, where he wants to go check everything out. He’s old enough that he can have playtime and we think that he would enjoy playtime. He’d probably love hopping up on your lap and on any obstacles you give him to explore! He really enjoys wall-surfing and bouncing around! He’s a sweet boy, he does well with being handled and petted. Doesn’t bite.

This chinchilla would make a great "first chinchilla" for someone who's never had one before.

This chinchilla is currently caged alone. However, if you interested in pairing him up with your, or one of our, chinchillas, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

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. He 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 chinchilla is located in Hammond, Indiana (zip code 46324). We can ship chinchillas from Chicago O’Hare, to a major airport near you. Inquire if interested.

The adoption fee for this tan male chinchilla is $200

Why Adoption is a Great Option

8m dark tan male 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.
