Canadian Chinchilla Rescue

GTA foster-home based rescue


21 Chinchillas currently looking for homes

PLEASE NOTE: WEBS IS HAVING ISSUES AND PICTURES ARE NOT APPEARING. Please see our facebook album for all current chin pics:

We have many chinchillas available!  Please read over all the Bios and see if one or two of the chins will fit into your life.  When you have decided on a chin, please fill out the Adoption Application.

Chinchillas are fostered in private homes.   Each bio will have where the chinchilla is fostered.  Because they are in private homes we need to arrange a visit based on when the foster is available. 

ADOPTION FEES ARE: $75 for single chinchillas and $110 for a pair


NOTE: if you have ANY questions or aren't sure about anything, please email me:[email protected] I am more than happy to answer any question you may have.

Dexter- Male Standard Chinchilla

Dexter is a male standard chinchilla who is under 5 years of age.  He is a very sweet boy to humans but not so much with other chins.  He should never be paired with another chinchilla, ever.  Fostered in North York

Sadie- Female Standard Chinchilla

Sadie was surrendered to the Brampton Animal Shelter.  They contacted us to take her in and she is settling in very well.  A very nice chin.  She doesn't like her cage to be bothered with and will spray sometimes.  She loves to run on her wheel and enjoys getting a twig. Sadie is a messy girl in her cage and likes to push all her shavings out of the way.  She does have some cage aggression but with the right home should settle in.  

 Fostered in Mississauga.

Elsa- Female Beige Fur Chewer

Elsa is a very nice chinchilla who fur chews. She stops for long periods of time and then starts up again.
