It is a rare day when we have a chinchilla up for adoption. It is an even river day when one is available who is so absolutely perfect in every way as our dear Chim Chim. This a one-year-old male chinchilla has been perfectly socialized. He loves to be held, is affectionate and curious, and open to exploring. Chinchillas require some specialized care, but once you commit to their needs they are extraordinarily rewarding pets. Our adoption counselors would love to speak to experienced or new chinchilla owners about how to set up their homes to enjoy the company of this little creature. To learn more, visit us online at or come on down to the shelter at 455 Post Road E in Westport.
