Canadian Chinchilla Rescue

GTA foster-home based rescue


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 $90 for a trio


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

Phoenix- male standard 6 years fur chewer

Phoenix is a male chinchilla who is very shy.  It takes him a while to warm up to you but once he does he is a sweetheart.  Phoenix is also a fur chewer.  Sometimes he chews a lot and then slows down.  Most likely it is more of a habit as he now has many items in his cage to keep him busy.
