Meet Lady Ghost, a sweet five month-old female chinchilla available for adoption at NWI Chinchilla Rescue! Lady Ghost is a gorgeous white ebony mosaic curly/locken chinchilla, she has the most beautiful markings (and cute curl to her tail and fur) and her personality is just as pretty! She can be a bit cautious while getting to know her people and isn’t overly active, but she’s an absolute sweetheart when she’s being handled and enjoys being petted … no biting from this little lady! Are you tired of being ghosted and want to give a forever home to one instead? She currently lives alone, but the rescue is more than willing to test out if she’ll bond with another chinchilla if you’re interested! Lady Ghost 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 her 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. Lady Ghost’s adoption fee is $200 and you must come to her for the adoption, she cannot be shipped (NWI Chinchillas is in Hammond, Indiana).
Lady Ghost is …
– a cautious girl and not overly active, but she’s a sweetheart while being handled.
– currently living alone, but the rescue is willing to test if she’ll bond with another chinchilla.
*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!*
