Surrendering a Chinchilla

As of October 3, 2018

As most people may know, we are a very small, all volunteer rescue organization. The rescue was founded in 1977 and has never turned away a chin in need. For the first time in our history, we are experiencing circumstances beyond our control that are altering our service availability as detailed below. 

Rescue Intake 
We are unable to take in any new rescues from now (early October) through early November 2018. If you are unable to care for your chin(s) until early November, please contact your local animal shelter. 
We appreciate your patience and support during this challenging time and look forward to returning to providing full services in November.
