Pete's Info...

I am good with kids and good with small animals.

Pete's Story...
These two big boys came from a situation caused by keeping male and female chins together- they kept breeding, and finally the owner was left with 12 chinchillas, and no time or money to care for them. Poor Pete got his front leg stuck in the cage and ended up losing the leg. Even though he is down a leg he is still a totally normal chin, and gets around quite well. He is calm and likes to be held. His pal Lion-O is also a fairly calm guy, and has a lot of love to give. This pair of boys would be great for first-time chinchilla owners, and will fit into most families nicely.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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