Lance's Story...

Lance was surrendered with a male cagemate. We were told the two came from separate homes as a result of displacement from Superstorm Sandy. Their last owner said she was able to eventually bond the boys, but as we know from past experience, difficult bonds are very easily broken. Lance killed his cagemate soon after their surrender. It is also for this very reason why we strongly advocate keeping only one gender of chinchilla in a home. The boys simply could not tolerate the temptation of girls under the same roof. (Chinchillas can and do know when a female is in heat, even through closed doors and separate areas of a house). Because of Lance's aggressive past, we are not willing to try to bond him with another chin. He is perfectly friendly and interactive towards people, however, and would make a great pet for someone who wants just one chinchilla.
Lance is beige, complete with ear freckles. He is approximately 3-5 years old.

Adoption fee: $75

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lance, 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.
