Canadian Chinchilla Rescue

GTA foster-home based rescue


We have many chinchillas available!  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: $75 for single chinchillas and $110 for a pair


NOTE: if you have ANY questions or aren't sure about anything, please email me:[email protected] I am more than happy to answer any question you may have.
