Hello! My name is Ernie
I am a special needs pet.
Ernie is a Homogenous Beige chinchilla, or commonly called a Homo Beige. He is bonded to Zeke and both came from a hoarder. Ernie has an ongoing leaking right eye. We aren't sure of the cause but the vet has come to the conclusion that this is an ongoing issue. There is nothing else wrong with Ernie.
Ernie is coming along and will take a treat from your hand. He is very cautious of new people but is easy to handle if you need to.

Rescue Group Info...
We started this rescue as chinchilla lovers who were approached to help chins in need. After helping a few chins it became clear that we needed to start up a rescue. Our goal is to help any chin in need and find them a FURever home. We will do our best to never turn down a chinchilla that needs our help.
You are free to meet the chins and see what it's like to own them. An appointment is necessary.
Our adoption process involves filling out a form on our site after reading www.petchinchillas.info site. After which we go over the application and have follow up questions. We then will have you come by to the main rescue foster and meet the chins. After you have seen them we will tell you if you are approved or not and for you to get set up for your new chinchilla. In a week or so you are able to pay the fee, sign an adoption contract and take home your chinchilla.
Currently we are mostly based in the GTA area however we have had chinchillas adopted as far as New Orleans. We have fosters in Quebec, Toronto and Mississauga.
