Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit , volunteer based, no kill rescue. Since 2003 we have provided a safe and loving home for chinchillas in need of care. We travel throughout CT, MA, NH, RI, VT and areas of NY to pick up chinchillas whose caregivers wish to surrender them. We also help to educate/counsel individuals about the physical and emotional requirements needed to provide for the well being of chinchillas. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have concerning their care.

Please see our web site and visit our online store along with resource links to other suppliers.

Adopting a friend

Our goal is to find wonderful, loving and knowledgeable forever homes for our chinchillas. We are looking for people who understand what is involved in having a chinchilla in their life and are happily willing to accommodate the chinchilla's needs. Please do your research first about the care that a chinchilla requires before applying for an adoption. Chinchillas are considered 'exotic pets' and have very specific needs. As wonderful as these animals are, they are not the appropriate animal companion for everyone. Please read our 'Adoptions' page as well as 'Are You Right for a Chinchilla?' page on our web site to see all the details about our adoption process. An adoption application may be found at the bottom of that page. Please give us a few days to get back to you as we are very busy caring for the chinchillas. There is a $75.00 adoption fee for each chinchilla. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age.

Due to the fact that chinchillas are nocturnal and have a nervous/hyper personality, they are not considered appropriate companions for children under 12 years or classrooms. Many people are allergic to chinchilla dust and hay, so please take this into consideration before applying for adoption.

Come Visit Us!

We are a private rescue and therefore are not open to the public. However, upon completion of an adoption application and FINAL APPROVAL, arrangements may be made to set up an appointment to visit the chinchillas that are available for adoption.


Since we are a non-profit organization, we rely on the generousity of donations from fellow animal lovers to provide for the survival of our rescue. All donations, including adoption fees are put into funds which are implemented for the rescued chinchillas expenses such as medical care, food, housing and daily living requirements.

Donations are always needed and greatly appreciated. Please visit our web site for a list of items that we are always in need of. All donations are tax deductible under applicable laws.
