Ginger & Nutmeg's Story...
Ginger (heterobeige) and Nutmeg (pinkwhite) are a mother/daughter pair. Ginger came from a home without air conditioning and was severely stressed. Ginger had the tendency to chew her fur, but has gotten much better about chewing hay instead. Ginger was surrendered with her mate who has since paired with another male. She was, in fact pregnant and gave birth to two kits. The male has since been weaned and adopted as a friend for a small herd of baby boys.

Nutmeg is a sweetie. Her coloring looks like a homobeige, but with a mosaic father, this is an impossible outcome. With their gentle personalities and beautiful coloring, these girls are some of our very favorites.

Ginger is less than 2 years old. Nutmeg was born on 6/26/12

Adoption fee: $200

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginger & Nutmeg, 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.
