Nellie's Story...
This lovely little lady is Nellie! She was found living in a machine shop in Manhattan- not a great environment for a chinnie. She was lucky enough to go home with a wonderful animal-loving woman who helped her socialize and learn how to be a great chin. She soon realized the apartment they were living in was too hot for a chin year-round, and called us to step in and help find Nellie a more suitable home. Nellie is about 3-4 years old, and would be a great 1st chinchilla for anyone!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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