Mayflower's Story...
This pair of girls were surrendered from separate homes but have bonded nicely here.

Mayflower nearly died of neglect. In fact, she had a cagemate of unknown gender who died shortly before she was surrendered. This poor little girl was emaciated and hunchbacked when she arrived. Thanks to Animal Whispers, another rescue group, we were able to offer her care before her previous owners let her simply waste away. Mayflower weighed in at 535 grams and has gained more than 100 grams in the past two months. We're still hoping the weight gain is not due to pregnancy, but so far she's simply showing signs of returning to health.

Junebug was surrendered with a group of chins, many of whom where misidentified in gender. She had kits with her and we've put her on maternity watch in the event that a breedback had occurred. While Junebug didn't get along with her previous cagemate, Kiwi, she does love Mayflower.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mayflower, 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.
