We have many chinchillas available! Some pairs, some singles and male or female. Please read over all the Bios and see if one or two of the chins will fit into your life. When you have decided on a chin, please fill out the Adoption Application.
Chinchillas are fostered in private homes. Each bio will have where the chinchilla is fostered. Because they are in private homes we need to arrange a visit based on when the foster is available.
ADOPTION FEES ARE: $50 for a single and $75 for a pair and $100 for a trio
NOTE: if you have ANY questions or aren't sure about anything, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org I am more than happy to answer any question you may have.
Lee is a very nice chinchilla. He has been waiting for his FURever home a long time. Lee was surrendered because his owner didn't have air conditioning and it was too hot for him. He loves to get treats and once when there was a girl chinchilla a cage over he sang away to her. Or as his foster said, "he made monkey noises".
Lee has a leaky eye that comes and goes. He has been looked at by the vet and nothing has been found. So it just comes and goes and doesn't seem to bother him at all.
Lee was with another chinchilla when he came into the rescue, who became very aggressive to him and so we split them up. Since then Lee has really come out of his shell. He is a very nice chinchilla and loves when it's time for treats. You can handle him a bit but he does prefer to just go at his own pace.
Lee was lucky enough to be on CP24 Breakfast and Steve Anthony just loved him:

As you can see, this little guy is an extreme fur chewer. We don't know if he will ever stop chewing but we are hopeful! He has a new wheel and tons of toys. He is VERY shy and takes a while to warm up to you. It took him 6 weeks before he would come up to the cage and took a treat. Patience will be the key to win this guy over. UPDATE: Phoenix is fur chewing LESS. He may always chew but with lots of toys and a wheel he isn't chewing near as much.
Phoenix is doing very well and is a very chunky boy. He is a very nice chinchilla and I am very happy at how he has progressed!

Carlos came from a hoarding situation in Montreal. He is the last of the chins we took in from the Montreal SPCA. He is a funny little guy and needs a very special person to adopt him.
Carlos is a special chinchilla for a couple of reasons. He has an ongoing leaky eye that comes and goes. It has been treated by our vet and it just seems to be something he will have. He can go weeks with no leaking eye and then it reappears.
Carlos is also a very high strung chinchilla and has a lot of trust issue. It will take a special person who is willing to spend a lot of time and patience on Carlos. He was not treated very well before he was surrendered and came from a hoarding situation. He LOVES his wheel and must go with it. It helps him when he feels upset and threatened.

Tigs is a female 5 year old chinchilla. She is very sweet but doesn't like other chinchillas very much. Tigs is also a fur chewer. We are hoping that with lots of attention she will stop soon. Tigs comes with her Ferret Nation, Chin Spin and many items. Because of that her adoption fee will be higher than the other chins. She is fostered in Guelph and her adoption fee is: $175
Fluffy is a female standard who is a fur chewer. She may stop chewing or she may not. Fur chewing is one of those things that makes a chin look like they have a funny haircut but doesn't bother them. We aren't sure why some chinchillas fur chew. Some do it out of boredom, stress, habit or just because. Fluffy is a nice girl who would do well with a lot of one on one attention. She has some issues with being territorial about her cage but is getting better. UPDATE: Fluffy DID stop fur chewing but did start to chew a small bit. She seems to have stopped again. She rarely chews now and is always running on her wheel.

These 3 boys arrived just after Christmas and will be up for adoption as of January 27th. We think it is a dad and his 2 sons. We were told the 2 boys are around 8 months and the other one is around 1-2 years. They are VERY busy boys who love their new cage and all the things they have to explore. We will have more info soon. They are fostered in Vaughn.
Molly just arrived at the rescue and will be up for adoption after 30 days. She is a standard female who is thought to be around 3 years old. She is a very nice girl who is settling in nicely. She will be fostered in Mississauga. More info to come soon!
Lamp Chop is the cutest chin we've had with us. She is a very sweet girl and is enjoying getting tons of hay and attention. She is currently on pregnancy watch. Once we are sure she has no babies she will be up for adoption. She is in Mississauga.
Eros is around 3 years of age. He did have a mate who died and was bonded to her. Because of that he is more shy around people but does enjoy getting treats and chews. He does not get along with other chinchillas. Eros is very curious but isn't into being handled very much. He loves treat time and loves rosehips. He DESTROYS lava items in no time!

Finnegan is a very shy Standard male chinchilla. He was beat up when placed with other chinchillas so he does have some ear damage. Finnegan needs time to adjust to new people but curiousity does take over and he does come out for treats and hay.
He LOVES his tube and sleeps in there all the time. He is very sweet though and with time will come out of shell more.
NOTE: Finnegan was adopted but has been returned because his owner was moving and could not take him. We hope the next home will be Finns FURever home!
