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

Due to the virus I am now meeting people outside. It must be below 80 degrees when we meet (which currently means before 10AM most mornings)

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 methods are cash or Venmo: SunsetChinchillas.
I will hold a chinchilla for 7 days with a non-refundable deposit of $50. This counts towards the total purchase price. After 7 days the chinchilla will be made available on the website again.

I do work full time so please be patient. This is a hobby I greatly enjoy, not a business.

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, prices previous customers have been quoted range $20-$400.

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. Makes metal carriers. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.
