Francis's Info...

I am not good with kids and not good with small animals.

Francis's Story...
update from his foster mom, May 2011: Well since Chollo left, Francis has become a whole different chin. He has calmed down a lot and is turning into a real people chin.

During playtime, he spends a lot of his time sitting next to me or on my lap getting scritches. I can scritch him where ever I want to including his tummy, back and around his tail. He will even let me stroke him from head to tail without complaint. He also likes his ears rubbed.

When the other chins are out, he sits calmly in his cage munching sticks, hay or pellets instead of tearing around the cage. One of his favorite tricks is walking on top of his wheel. He also jams himself between the top of the wheel and the cage with his feet on the door. He then shoots poos out of the cage. It seems to be one of his favorite pastimes cause I always find a little pile in front of his cage every morning.

He has become much less territorial about his cage too. I used to have to be very careful to keep my hands away from the bars or I would get bit. Now he is taking treats through the bars without attacking them and I'm able to give him scritches through the bars too.

He really has become a big softy and a much happier chin.

Adoption fee is $75. An approved cage and exercise wheel is required. For more information, please see our website: www.nolachinchillarescue.org **Pet Only! Not For Breeding**Home Visit Required** **21+ To Adopt**

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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