Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!
Welcome to NWI Chinchillas! We are a small hobby breeder of chinchillas located in Northwest Indiana -- specifically Wolcott, Indiana (a small farm community, 30 minutes north of Lafayette). We are members of both MCBA and ECBC. Our ranch brand is MNWI.
We breed only quality pedigreed chinchillas with great personalities, to produce kits (babies) that are friendly and are a great example of the species, whether they end up as pets or breeders. We handle all kits from day one, and rescues from the day they arrive, in an effort to ensure our chinchillas are socialized and used to human contact for when they are ready to go to their new homes!
We typically have a wide variety of available chinchillas -- everything from rescues to ones we've bred out of our pedigreed show lines. Check out our Available Chinchillas pages 1, 2, 3, and 4, for available furballs! Something else you're looking for? Ask!
We also do chinchilla and small animals/exotics rescue -- we will take in chinchillas and other small animals/exotics that need a good home and adopt them out to new homes. For more information, please visit our "NWI Chinchilla Rescue" page.
Wanting to surrender your chinchilla or other small animal / small exotic? Often we are full and have a waiting list, due to the decreasing amount of rescues that take in small animals, and the large number of small animals needing new homes. Want to be added to our waiting list? Fill out our waiting list form, here --> NWI Surrender Waiting List (online form)
