NWI Chinchillas

Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Important Adoption Information

Please note that the following applies to all chinchillas (and other small animals) adopted from NWI:
 
 --All chinchillas come with 2 pounds of food (Mazuri Chinchilla Chow or Tradition Chinchilla Food, unless otherwise noted), a goodie bag, a care booklet, and a lifetime of support.  Pairs will come with 4 pounds of food and 2 goodie bags.
 
--Regardless of past chinchilla experience, all potential homes will be asked to read our chinchilla care packet, fill out our adoption form, and provide proof of caging.  If you are unwilling to do this, please do not waste our time or yours.  No chinchilla will go to a new home without an adoption application being filled out and proof of cage - no exceptions. 
 
--Unless it is specifically noted in their ad, none of our adoptable chinchillas come with a cage.
 
--All chinchillas are located in Hammond, Indiana, unless otherwise noted (rarely are they located elsewhere).

--As rabbits are illegal to own in Hammond, Indiana, any rescue rabbits that we may have will be fostered (and located) elsewhere.
 
--We may be able to meet or deliver our chinchillas, or other animals, for a fee.  Please inquire if interested.
 
--We can ship our chinchillas, or other animals, at the cost of the adopter.  If this is something you think you might be interested in, please check out our page on shipping animals -- Shipping Information.
