Meet Sir Plumpy, a nearly six month-old grey chinchilla available for adoption through NWI Chinchilla Rescue! Look at his adorable roundness … doesn’t it just make you want to give this sweet boy his forever home? He’s a curious chinchilla with a decent amount of energy who would do best in a home where he can be active, but he also enjoys chilling in the arms of his people when he’s done bouncing around! Sir Plumpy will come with some food to start you out (2 pounds of Tradition pellets), a goodie bag of chews/treats, and a printed out version of the care packet. Chinchillas need weekly dust baths, so you will definitely need to make sure you have special chinchilla dust on hand to keep his fur and skin healthy. Regardless of past chinchilla experience, all potential homes will be asked to read their chinchilla care packet and fill out the adoption application/chinchilla questionnaire. No chinchilla will go to a new home without an adoption application being filled out – NO EXCEPTIONS. Sir Plumpy’s adoption fee is $135 and you must come to her for the adoption, he cannot be shipped (NWI Chinchillas is in Hammond, Indiana).
Sir Plumpy is …
– a curious and active chinchilla who would do best in an active home.
– good with people and doesn’t bite.
I’ve included a link on chinchilla care and FAQs from the rescue’s website. Chinchillas can live approximately 10 years, so taking on a chinchilla is a long-term commitment! Also, make sure you do plenty of research before adopting your first chinchilla … there’s a lot to learn!
