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.

When you arrive I will have you sit down and let the chinchillas out to play in same gender groups for you to interact with so you can see the different temperaments and energy levels. If you see a chinchilla for sale that you really want please let me know when we set up an appointment.

If you *don't* see the color, gender or age of chinchilla you would like please let me know. Over the course of the season I keep and release many from my show group depending on how they are growing, how well siblings placed or how many of a particular color I have. I may have two whites in a litter but be waiting to see who looks the most spectacular when a show comes around. If you ask, I may be convinced to part with one. :-)

Current payment method is cash only. I'm working with my credit union to accept Zelle in 2020 but they are a bit behind the times. 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. Bunnyrabbit.com Makes metal carriers. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.
