2 Year Old Pair of Hetero Beige & White Mosaic Female Chinchillas -- "Dorme" & "Pika"

We have a pair of female chinchillas up for adoption – in Oregon!


Please note -- these girls cannot be transported away from their current home, and WILL need to be adopted out directly from their owner’s home, in West Linn, Oregon (about 10 miles south of Portland, close to Oregon City). If you are not able to travel there to adopt, please view some of our other furballs for adoption. Thank you!


These girls are named Dorme and Pika and they are about 2 years old. Dorme is a hetero beige female, and Pika is a white mosaic female. Dorme was born around November 2017, and Pika was born around October 2017. Here is what their owner has to say about them:


“Dorme is beautiful. Neither one enjoys being held, but at least we can catch Dorme and once she is held, she settles down for about 5 to 10 minutes. She is a darling, I just think because they are bonded, they are not as tame with humans. She is a sweetheart, but if a family with children had time to spend, it would be great.


Little Pika, she is as wild as the wind.... the most athletic Chin I have ever had, she can do triple flips and she needs to be in the Olympics.... LOL. She is adorable and we only have a couple pictures because she will not be picked up... sometimes bites although, that is not so bad. I have to grab her at the base of her tail to get her to come to me. She LOVES to get out of the cage and will jump out at any chance. She is a load of fun.

They get out every day for play time, I clean the cage daily, and they watch TV at nighttime which they love.”


These girls are a pair and can only go to their new home together, with their cage and accessories. Please do not contact us or their owner asking to adopt only one of them. They are bonded chinchillas and will be staying together.


These chinchillas are eating Oxbow Essentials, and can go to their new home with some of their food.


Regardless of past chinchilla experience, all potential homes will be asked to read our chinchilla care packet and fill out our adoption form. 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 - no exceptions.


These girls are coming with their cage, which is a Quality Cage Crafter’s Chinchilla Mansion (this cage starts at $379.99!), on a stand ($79.99), and has a metal wheel ($119.99) and all sorts of fun accessories! You will be getting this all with the two fluffballs, which the owner originally purchased from us here in Indiana, and we shipped to her! Wow! All of this for a total of $250! This is an incredible deal for anyone in her area!


If you have questions specifically about these chinchillas, please contact their owner, Eva (she can be reached at evasmall007@gmail.com or 503-462-4489). If you have questions about adopting these cuties, please let us know!


2-5 Yr Old Pair of Standard Grey & Hetero Beige Male Chinchillas -- "Gumby" & "Pokey"

We have a pair of male chinchillas that are looking for their new home. These boys are named Gumby & Pokey. These boys came into the rescue a bit ago, and are now chilling at a foster home, receiving a ton of one-one-one attention, and now they are ready to go into their new forever home!


While we don’t have an exact birthdate for these boys, we estimate that they are 2-5 years old, which would make them born in 2014-2017. Great time to take them home!


Gumby is the hetero beige male chinchilla (beige with a white belly) and Pokey is a standard grey male chinchilla (salt and pepper grey with white belly). They make a very cute pair!


Here’s what their foster home has to say about these boys:


“Pokey and Gumby are very friendly, sweet, curious, and do love attention. They both enjoy having their necks scratched and being talked to. Treats are always welcome, of course, and they don’t seem to be very picky, yet. They have been around kid (9 and older), dogs, lots of loud noises / chaos and are pretty chill about all of it. Pokey loves to nibble on everything he can. He isn’t a big snuggler, but absolutely loves play time. Gumby is very curious about everything going on around him (more so than Pokey). Especially when you do anything in their cage (food, water, treats, dust bath, and hay). He is super snuggly and loves hanging out. Both take treats from our hands / fingers.”


Neither chinchilla has ever bitten anyone.


These boys are a pair and can only go to their new home together. Please do not contact us asking to adopt only one of them. They are bonded chinchillas and will be staying together. They are often sitting and sleeping together, on the same shelf, and we know you will find that oh so cute!!

These boys would make great “first chinchillas” for someone who’s never had one before.


The adoption fee for Gumby and Pokey is $175


1-1.5 Year Old Trio of Male Chinchillas -- "Mini-Me," "Ginormo," & "Apollo"

We have a trio of male chinchillas that are looking for their new home. These boys are named Mini-Me, Ginormo, & Apollo. These boys came into our rescue a bit ago, spent some time at a foster home, and are now back at the rescue and ready to find their new home!


We have down that Mini-Me and Ginormo are brothers and were born in 8/2018, which makes them just a bit over a year old. Apollo was born in 2/2018, which makes him 1.5 years old. Nice young trio of males, great time to take them home!


Both Mini-Me and Ginormo are medium ebony male chinchillas, which means they are charcoal colored all over their body, including their belly. Apollo is a sapphire male chinchilla, so he ha more of a lighter grey coloring over his back, with a white belly.


Here’s what their foster home has to say about these boys:


“All three of the boys are active and friendly, and you most often find them piled up together in a little ball of fluff. Apollo likes being pampered with attention and scratches, and Mini Me always likes to know what’s going on (he’s the most curious of the bunch). Ginormo is probably the most food and nap motivated, but provided you can offer him those two things, you’ll become his new favorite person.”


None of these chinchillas have ever bitten anyone.


These boys are a trio and can only go to their new home together. Please do not contact us asking to adopt any less than all three of them. They are bonded chinchillas and will be staying together. They are often sitting and sleeping together, on the same shelf, and we know you will find that oh so cute!!


These boys would make great “first chinchillas” for someone who’s never had one before.


The adoption fee for Mini-Me, Ginormo, & Apollo is $250


Pair of Mom & Daughter Hetero Beige Female Chinchillas -- "Livia" & "Miracle"

We have a pair of female chinchillas that are looking for their new home. These girls are named Livia & Miracle. They are a mom and daughter pair of chinchillas. Livia is the mom and Miracle is the daughter. We are told that Miracle was named that because she was so small at birth that it was a miracle she survived. Livia’s age is unknown, but we have been told that Miracle is about two years old, and we estimate her date of birth to be April 2017. Unfortunately, the owner of these girls developed horrible allergies and breathing issues after having these chins for some time, and that’s how we ended up with them here.


Both Livia and Miracle are hetero beige chinchillas, so the do look similar! They’re both a creamy beigeish color on their back, with a white belly. However, you can tell them apart! Livia fur chews a bit, so she looks a bit more patchy on her backside by her hips, and she also is missing part of one of her back feet! This doesn’t affect her life, it’s just something that gives her character and can help you tell these awesome furballs apart! Also, Livia has more freckles on her ears, whereas Miracle just has a few.


Livia and Miracle are currently living in a foster home in Dubuque, Iowa. This is what their foster home has to say about them:


“So far they are both doing really great! I have been trying to get some good pictures but they are usually pretty active! I got the new cage all put together and they really seem to be enjoying it! I am already in love with them! They are really, really great! The first day I had them, Miracle nipped a tiny bit at me when being picked up, but has not nipped at me since! (we were told by the previous home that Miracle might nip) They seem ok with being handled. They don’t seem to like the act of the picking up, but once you have them in your hands they are more comfortable and calm!”


We also have a more recent update!:


"Livia and Miracle are both doing great!  They mostly love hanging out at the highest point in the cage. They are not real big lovers of treats.  They take their time getting to them and sometimes only eat a part of them.  They don't love being picked up and being held, but sometimes its okay.  Even though they don't like being picked up I've only had Miracle nip me one time and that was the very first day I had her.  They really enjoy their play time in larger spaces.  But after about 45 minutes of open play Livia seems to be ready to chill out again.  Miracle on the other hand is like the Energizer Bunny when it comes to open play time, she could do that allllll the time!  During play time they are very curious and want to know what everything is!  If you sit on the floor with them eventually they start climbing up your legs, but play time is not for petting, it's for adventure!  They do extremely well with pets and don't mind being in the same space as our dogs, they basically ignore their existence and keep doing their adorable little chin thing!"


Annnnd a more recent observation:


"The girls like to sit up higher and watch what is going on below!"


These girls are a pair and can only go to their new home together. Please do not contact us asking to adopt only one of them. They are bonded chinchillas and will be staying together.


These girls would make good “first chinchillas” for someone who’s never had one before, provided the person isn’t intimidated by possible light nipping by Miracle.


The adoption fee for Livia & Miracle is $200


Please note, these chinchillas are located at one of our foster homes in Dubuque, Iowa (zip 52001). They can be adopted directly from their foster home, or they can be brought back to the rescue in Hammond, Indiana for adoption as well. Please allow a couple of days for transport / adoption of these girls. Thanks for your understanding!
