Basil's Story...
Basil (heterozygous beige) is a single male who does not get along with other chinchillas. He was previously adopted where he lived as the spoiled only chin of a young girl who eventually decided she no longer had the time to devote the necessary attention to him.

Basil's personality is sweet and laid back and would make an excellent first chin for a responsible and gentle youth or first time chin owner.

Adoption fee: $75 or $175 with complete cage set up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Basil, 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.
