If you need to reschedule or will be late please. :-)


*I will be unavailable Dec 24th-25th to spend time with my family.*

Chinchillas are first come first serve, I do not hold. I ask that you please not be late for your appointment as I schedule people 2 hours apart and often have multiple visitors per day. I am only available after work during the week and on the weekends.

Current payment method is cash only. I am working on getting Zelle set up in 2020.



$200 each, currently housed together but can be separated.Young gray brothers, mostly potty trained. They are ready for a new home.
$220 - Baby Gray boy, just weaned. Not potty trained.
$300 - Violet Male, potty trained.
$400 - Young Violet girl, super fun and inquisitive and ready for a new home.
$200 - Standard Gray girl from the Merrits. Massive girl, great mom, took class champion at the 2018 ECBC national show. Potty trained and ready for a new home. Would make a great herd improvement female for someone just getting into breeding.
$500 - Baby pure black ebony boy. It is very rare that I have an all shiny black baby available. This little guy is so soft and plush. Out of my top show lines. He is now weaned and ready for a new home, currently in a pair with the little white mosaic boy.
$500 - Baby mosaic boy, just weaned. This little guy is out of my top show line. His dad took class champ, his mom reserve and his sister took phase champ at the last show. He will likely keep his markings, his dad did but all mosaics have the possibility of getting lighter or darker with age.
$500 - Stunning mosaic gal. This is one of my favorite girls from this year, she is a total Diva and really fun to take photos of. She is 7 months old and would make a great pet or breeder. Unfortunately I can't keep them all!


You are welcome to contact me at chinpoo@sunsetchinchillas.com or call/text (318) 405-1163 to set up a time to visit and pick out a chinchilla.

Current payment method is cash only. In certain cases I will accept a check - if the chinchillas are being transported across country but it must be received two weeks before the chinchilla leaves and it must clear the bank first.
I do not hold chinchillas unless you are shipping out of state and a deposit must be received within 7 days.

I am available to meet by appointment on the weekends or after 6PM during the week.

All chins must be picked up in person or you can arrange a transporter. Examples of the transporters people use are USHIP Pets and Citizen Shipper. It is up to the buyer to arrange and pay for these services.


Once you find a transporter you can either ship your own carrier and water bottle to me, or purchase online at Walmart and I will pick it up at the local store. The transporters usually contact me to schedule a pickup time (weekday evenings after 6PM or weekends) and we will go from there. Carriers need to be hard sided cat carriers, or if it is more than a 3 day trip they MUST BE ALL METAL. Chinchillas eat plastic and when they get bored on long trips they chew right through those carriers. Ryerson Chinchilla Makes what is considered the best metal chinchilla carriers in the industry. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.
