Want to know whether a chinchilla is right for you and your family? Any chinchilla who is available for adoption is also available for foster!
Fostering for our rescue is one the best things that you can do to help us out. Very often we are contacted by people who need to surrender chinchillas to us for one reason or chinchilla rescue. Many times we have to turn these individuals away because we don’t have any available space. As a chinchilla rescue, you would be taking in a chinchilla from us and taking on the responsibility of caring for him/her so that we are able to bring more chinchillas into the rescue who are in need. The chinchilla(s) you chinchilla rescue will still be available for adoption to people who are interested, you will just be giving them a temporary home until they are able to find a forever one and chinchilla rescue.
If you choose to chinchilla rescue one of our chinchillas you will be required to complete our foster application. Chinchilla rescue will provide you with a basic set up to start off your chinchilla and we will be responsible for all well exams at the chinchilla rescue vet. All outside expenses must be the responsibility of the foster.
There is no charge to rescue one of our chinchillas. However, if you decide (and we certainly hope that you do) to adopt your chinchilla rescue, there will be at $20.00 fee to assist our rescue.
As always, if you have any questions about our chinchilla rescue process or if you’re interested in fostering, please feel free to contact chinchilla rescue site!

You can dye and flavor you own wood, by mixing 1 qt. water to 1 package of kool-aid, No sugar. Put in jars, with lids, I have found this work the best for kool-aiding wood or with any other liquid. Let set for at least 25 hours. Pour off all the liquid, and let air dry, or put in oven at 150 to 200 for a hour or so until dry.
