Our Featured Rescue
Click here to go to Jellybean's page. This sweet girl came here due to a breeder selling out and wanting to place all of her animals quickly. She has been here for some time now, as many people do not like her red eyes. Though she may not always get along with other guinea pigs, she does well with being handled and petted, and does not bite. She is a sweet girl and is looking for her forever home, hopefully soon.
Who We Are
NWI Chinchilla Rescue is a non-profit organization. NWI Chinchilla Rescue is run out of a residential home in Munster, Indiana. We have been helping to rescue and re-home furry exotics since 2003. For the animals, we provide shelter, proper care, love, socialization, and prompt veterinary care when needed. For the new adoptive families, we provide education, supplies for sale, and a lifetime of support.
Adopt a Friend
Adopting a chinchilla (or any other critter) from NWI Chinchilla Rescue involves a two-step process. First, the adoptive family needs to read through our chinchilla care packet, which details basic chinchilla care. Once this has been done, the adoptive home then needs to fill out our chinchilla adoption form. Once completed and returned, this form will be reviewed. If completed satisfactorily, the adoptive home is then set to bring a few furry family member home.
All furry family members come with 2 pounds of feed (chinchillas come with Mazuri Chinchilla Chow), a baggie of chews/treats, a chinchilla care booklet, and a lifetime of support.
All funds brought in from adoption fees and supply sales are used to pay for food, supplies, and necessary vet care for other rescues.
Come Visit Us!
Curious about adopting? Not sure if a chinchilla is the right pet for you? You don't have to adopt, in order to come see our facility and come visit the chins! People are welcome to come over and see what they think, see if chinchillas are right for them, or just come over and see what a day at the rescue is like. Please, do give us a call first, we are not always home (we do have day jobs & attend classes/seminars/chinchilla shows).
