Mimi came to Chin Friends from a hoarding situation of 22 chinchillas, who were all living in fish tanks. It was a filthy, sad situation and pretty horrible to see. Many of the chinchillas from this situation are thin with barbered (chewed off) fur. Mimi is 1 of these chins. She is very young, probably not more than 1-2yrs of age. She is very skinny, and while she is eating a lot now, it will b...

Exquisite Genevieve was surrendered when her sister passed away. She is a very shy chinchilla who really would benefit from being bonded with another great girl. She is 6yrs old, and not too confident around humans. She is a gentle chin, and although she will bark warnings at your approaching hands, she would never bite. Once she is in your arms she is a calm girl. She will do very well in a ch...
Zelda was surrendered to Chin Friends by a family who had adopted her a few years ago, from another situation. Zelda was pretty neglected in both homes, and after some inquiring we discovered she had never been out of the cage or handled by humans- for 12 yrs!!! She was very fearful, but aside from some distress barking and some well-placed shots of urine in her foster mom's direction, it turns...
Where do we begin about Oliver! He's got looks, he's got personality, he was VERY spoiled and will have very high expectations of what he wants from you. Oliver was a much-loved pet in Manhattan, and he is a true Diva. He's outgoing and calm, affectionate and tolerant- but if you look at another chin or give a treat to a chinchilla in a nearby cage- oh, the glare of evil you will get from Olive...

Coconut will need to be kept on a strict diet of Science Selective pellets (available on Amazo...
Mr Empanado was brought to us by a nice family, who saved him from being dumped outside by someone who no longer wanted him. We are still trying to figure out why anyone would want to get rid of this little guy!! He is confident, happy and LOVES to eat and chew on his toys. He is a little shy when 1st meeting new people, probably as a result of being passed around so much recently- but once he ...
Welcome, Titan!! This special little guy was sold at a pet store in Massachusetts, then returned. When he came back to the store he was very fearful of humans and had very little chance of finding a nice forever home. Luckily a nice Samaritan who is also an adopter of ours, was able to spring him from the pet store and drive Titan here to us :-) He is slowly learning how to trust people, and is...
