Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!

Help Re-Fund Our Rescue!

We've recently faced some high vet bills which have depleted our rescue bank account by over 75%!  We operate on a shoestring budget here, and one of our friends wanted to help, and so they created this go-fund-me for us!  Check it out!

If you appreciate what we do and the animals that we help, consider donating to our cause!  Thank you!


We've checked our inventory yet again & marked down even more hammocks!

Heart and flower hammocks are down to $5!  Wow!!  Get them before they're gone!

...and check out our new Hammock Shelves and Hanging Fleece House Shelves!

Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!  We are a small hobby breeder of chinchillas located in Northwest Indiana -- specifically, Hammond, Indiana.  We are members of both MCBA and ECBC, and currently own quite a few chinchillas of our own, as well as all the rescues.  Our ranch brand is MNWI.

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.

All of our chinchillas are pets first, breeders second.  We breed only quality pedigreed chinchillas with great personalities, to produce kits that are friendly, whether they end up as pets or breeders.  We handle all kits from day one, and rescues from the day they arrive, so our chinchillas are socialized and used to human contact when they are ready to go home with their new owners.
