Available for Adoption

We are small group of volunteers located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our primary foster home is in Menlo Park, California. Because our foster homes are private homes, we do not have daily or scheduled hours during which we receive visitors. To make an appointment to visit the chinchillas available for adoption or to get more information about any of our chinchillas,
call (805) CHINS-88. If no answer, please leave name, phone number and e-mail. Emails may also be sent to cachins88@gmail.com. Please be patient with replies because we are a small group of volunteers.

We do not ship or deliver animals. If you are not in Northern California, we can try to help you find a rescue group closer to your location. If you are in Southern California, please check our list of rescues for contacts nearer you.

We do not adopt animals to people under the age of 18.

Our chinchillas are not to be used for breeding of any kind, either intentional or "accidental", for profit or to produce offspring to add to your chinchilla family. See our adoption policy and adoption process for more information.

Our adoption fee is $100 per animal which includes a "care package" worth about $50. Used cages are available for a small donation.
