Do you have baby chinchillas for adoption? I am looking for a baby so I can bond with it.

In a nutshell, no. This is a rescue, and we generally are filled with chinchillas people no longer want, and can not care for. This rarely would include a little baby chinchilla. Most chins we get surrendered to us are 2+ years old, which is just about the time people realize they don't pay attention to them, are overwhelmed with the care, or are "allergic" to them. Please keep in mind however: chinchillas can live 15-20 years so a 2-4 in still a very young chinchilla!

All chinchillas want to bond, not just babies! Chinchillas are social in nature and chins of all ages will try their hardest to make it work with you. Adult chinchillas are often much better in family situations because they have less nervous energy than babies, and already have social skills that babies will lack.

On the rare occasion we take in a baby or a pregnant female who gives birth in the rescue, we keep the baby until about 8-10 weeks of age, with the mother. We will then try to adopt out female babies WITH the mother. Male babies we use for bonding with other single male chinchillas. We will not adopt a baby chin out as a single pet. They are social and needy and deserve to grow up with a friend in the cage 24/7.
