Unsure If a Chinchilla Is the Pet For You? Try It Out For A Week!

Want to see what it would be like to have a chinchilla as a pet?  Unsure if you might be allergic?  Try our "trial run" program.  In this program, you get to take home a chinchilla, complete with cage and all needed supplies, for a week.  To ensure that no one takes off with our chinchillas / cages / supplies, we ask that you put down a deposit equal to the cost of the chinchilla, cage, and supplies.  We also require a signed form, detailing that you do not own, and that you will return, the chinchilla / cage / supplies, or will forfeit your deposit.  To ensure everyone is being truthful, we make a copy of your driver's license at your appointment.  


If you do not decide to adopt the chinchilla, your deposit is returned / refunded, when our chinchilla / cage / supplies are returned.  There is NO actual fee to do this, just the deposit to ensure that we either get our stuff back, or are compensated for it.  If you do decide to adopt, the deposit can be applied to the chinchilla adoption fee and anything else you may want to purchase.  If your deposit is a larger amount than what you end up purchasing, we will refund you the difference.  If you would like to participate in this program, please let us know.

Explanation of Terms (on the Available Chinchillas pages)

Kit -- this is the term for a baby chinchilla.  Same as how we call baby dogs, puppies.  


Dob -- date of birth.  When the chinchilla was born. 


Culled breeder -- a chinchilla that was used as a breeder at a different location (usually a large chinchilla ranch) where, when culled (removed from breeding), chinchillas are put down.  


Retired breeder -- a chinchilla used as a breeder here.  Our retired breeders are not put down, but rather, all go to pet homes.
