7.5 Month Old Black Velvet Male Chinchilla 

We have a black velvet male chinchilla who’s looking for his new home. He came to NWI just a bit ago, and is now ready to leave and go to a family of his own. We were given an estimated birthdate of 8/10/2019, which would make him just about 7.5 months old. Great time to take him home!

His color is called black velvet, which means he is a dark black color over his back, with a nice white belly.


This boy is curious and wants to check things out! He is relatively easy to pick up, though his goal in life isn’t to chill with you, but rather, to explore! He does settle down after you’re handling him a bit, but we think he would enjoy playtime much more than simply being handled. How boring! Sweet boy, just on the active side. He doesn’t bite.


He would make a great “first chinchilla” for someone who’s never had one before, as long as they understand he is a bit more on the active side.

This chinchilla is currently caged alone. However, if you interested in pairing him up with your, or one of our, chinchillas, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.


The adoption fee for this black velvet male is $200

6 Month Old Standard Grey Female Chinchilla w/ Head Tilt

We have a standard grey female chinchilla who’s looking for her new home. She was born 9/28/19, so she has just now turned 6 months old. Great time to take her home!


This female’s color is called standard grey, which means she is grey over most of her body, except for her belly, which is white. This little girl has a permanent head tilt. Likely, she had an ear infection as a youngster, which causes a chinchilla to tilt its head, and when that cleared up, unfortunately the tilt didn’t. This doesn’t affect her in any way -- she gets around and is just a able-bodied as any other chinchilla, but we mention it, because we know some of you are out there looking for the “perfect” chinchillas… and while we think she is perfect in her own way, we know that this is not “perfect” to everyone.


She is an energetic girl that often does not stop moving! She is a go-getter chinchilla! She’s actually relatively easy to pick up, mainly because she has no problem jumping into your arms while she’s hopping around everywhere! You can definitely handle her and pet her, just her goal in life is not to snuggle, but rather, to explore! Do you want to enjoy playtime with your chinchilla? This one is for you! She will eventually settle down if you hold her for long enough… we think… to conserve energy for her next run-around! She’s actually a very sweet girl, and will make someone who’s looking for an active chinchilla a great pet. She doesn’t bite.


He would make a great “first chinchilla” for someone who’s never had one before, as long as that person is looking for an active chinchilla.


This chinchilla is currently caged alone, and we don’t know how she does with others. However, if you interested in pairing her up with your, or one of our, chinchillas, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.


The adoption fee for this standard grey female chinchilla is $135

9.5 Year Old Med Ebony Female Chinchilla -- can come w/ cage & accessories -- "Misty"

We have a medium ebony female chinchilla that is looking for her new home. Her name is Misty! Misty came into the rescue when her buddy passed away and her owner no longer had the time to devote to her. She’s spent some time settling in, and now she’s available for adoption! The previous owner told us that her birthdate was 8/20/2010, which means that she is 9.5 years old!


Misty’s color is called medium ebony, which is a charcoal-y grey color over her whole body, including her belly! Most chinchillas have a white belly, but since Misty has the ebony gene, her belly is the same color (well, slightly lighter… but for sure not white) as the rest of her!


Misty is relatively easy to scoop up into your arms. She does have her energetic moments where she wants to explore, but in general she’s very sweet and will chill with you. She does well with being handled and petted, and she will sit nicely when you’re holding her, for the most part. She is a sweet girl! She may enjoy playtime, as she often is at the front of the cage wanting to see what’s going on, and we do believe she got playtime in her previous home. Very sweet girl, definitely has personality.


Misty’s previous owner had x-rays done on her, as her cagemate had tooth issues, and the owner wanted to check to see if Misty did as well. Her teeth look fine and she is showing no signs of any problems, but since we do have the x-rays, we are happy to pass them onto the new owner, so they have a baseline, in case anything should ever change.


Misty can come with the cage she is currently living in for an additional $75. If you would like us to swap out the shelves and goodies for wooden shelves and goodies, let us know and we can discuss pricing. The current shelves in Misty’s cage ARE plastic, though she does not chew them and apparently has been in this cage for all of her life. She does pee on her shelves, and we do have more plastic shelves (that fit the cage) that we will include with the cage, so it’s easier for you to swap them out and clean them. See picture of attached cage… it’s about 4’ tall, though if you’d like actual dimensions, please let me know and I will go measure it.


This chinchilla would make a great “first chinchilla” for someone who’s never had chinchillas before.


Since Misty had a cage-mate before, it is definitely possible that she might get along with another one in the future.  She may be a chinchilla for you to consider if you're looking for a pair of chins (we can try to pair her with another female here), or if you're wanting a buddy for your female chin!  Let us know!

 

The adoption fee for Misty is $100, or adopt her and her cage w/ accessories for $175 total! 


SALE!!! Adopt Misty for $75, or adopt her with her cage / accessories for $150!!


5 Month Old White Ebony Male Chinchilla

We have a striking white ebony male chinchilla who’s looking for his new home. He’s just now 5 months old and it’s now a great time for him to go to a family of his own. He was born 10/10/19.


He is a white ebony. Basically, he’s white with dark markings, and as you can see from the pictures, he’s mostly white with some dark eyeliner! How neat, right? Genetically, he is the product of a white bred with an ebony chinchilla to get a white ebony. When you have the ebony gene expressed with the white, you tend to get darker, more distinct markings on the chinchilla…like the eyeliner! He’s also got a dark base of his tail.


This guy has a great personality to boot! He’s super sweet, relatively easy to pick up, and he does well with being handled and petted! What else could you ask for! Super sweet boy, does great with handling, and he doesn’t bite.


He would make a great “first chinchilla” for someone who’s never had one before.


This chinchilla is currently caged alone. However, if you interested in pairing him up with your, or one of our, chinchillas, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.


The adoption fee for this white ebony male chinchilla is $250

6.5 Year Old Standard Grey Male Chinchilla -- "Henry" (formerly Rick)

We have a standard grey male chinchilla that is looking for his new home. His name is Henry (formerly known as Rick)! Henry came to our rescue when his owner no longer was able to care for him. He’s spent some time here at the rescue, but since he was not settling in well, he has been transferred to one of our foster homes in Chicago, IL, where he is blossoming! This foster home re-named him Henry, though of course, you can name him whatever you like. We were told that Henry was born around 6/2013, which makes him 6.5 years old!


Henry’s color is called standard grey, which means he is the classic salt and pepper chinchilla color over his back and much of his body, with a white belly.


Here’s what Henry’s foster home has to say about him:


Henry is a very vibrant and energetic chinchilla. He loves to cuddle and play outside his house with his humans in a safe play space. He’ll need to go to a home that has the time and energy to devote to him and he’ll require a chin spin (wheel) for his extra energy. Since he seems to love human interaction, I’ve found that he is happiest when at the very least I give him scritches when I walk by and spend a few minutes with him on a consistent basis. He’s really good at begging for attention with this super adorable face (he wins 9 times out of 10)! He’s been good with children 7 and up.


Henry has never bitten anyone.


Because he did not do well at the rescue, Henry will need a quiet-er home with less hustle and bustle going on. He would not do well in an overly busy household.


Please note: Henry is currently living with one of our foster homes in Chicago, IL. He can be adopted directly from the foster home, or he can come back to the rescue to be adopted. Please allow for time to set up transportation if you are interested in this little cutie!


The adoption fee for Henry is $75
