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 covid I am meeting people outside. If you want a chinchilla, let me know which one and I will do my best to describe him/her to you. I am not allowing people to handle them then hand them back and leave - chinchillas can get the respiratory part of covid just like any other mammal and I do not want to infect the rest of my pets.

I hope that at some point in the future we can get back to sitting down in the hallway and playing with the babies! This really helps them socialize and I love to chat too. Until then please understand that if it is hot out I may rush you to put the chin (especially babies) directly into your vehicle so they can stay cool. I am happy to stand and chat as long as you like!

Thank you for your understanding.

Current payment methods are Cash (preferred), Apple Pay or Venmo: SunsetChinchillas. If you use Venmo and pay as services and goods I am required to charge applicable sales tax of 8.25%.

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 at my home, 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, previous customers have been quoted $20-$400 depending on distance.

Once you find a transporter you can ask if they provide carriers - many do. You can also have one shipped to me, please include a water bottle if the chinchilla will be on the transport more than 12 hours. The transporters usually contact me to schedule a pickup time 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 and 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.
