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: email@example.com 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!
Fostered in Vaughn. Adoption fee is $50
Fluffy is a female standard who is a fur chewer. She stops for long periods of time and then will sometimes chew overnight. 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. She prefers you not to handle her but if you must she will put up with it.
She is fostered in Mississauga and her adoption fee is $50

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!

Shadow and Smokey are a mother and son pair. Smokey, the male is neutered so he can remain with his mom. Since arriving at the rescue Smokey has had some teeth issues. He had a filing and seemed to be doing a lot better. Then he started drooling again due to a gum infection. Currently neither is up for adoption until we know what we are dealing with in regards to Smokey. If you want to help Smokey you can donate to our vet fund: https://www.canadahelps.org/GivingPages/GivingPage.aspx?gpID=18298
