Please Text or call if you need to reschedule or will be late please.
I accept cash and Venmo: SunsetChinchillas

Deposits to hold are $50 and are good for 7 days for adults or 7 days after the posted availability date for babies.


$300 - Girl - Super huge and sweet girl. She will snuggle at times which is unusual for a chinchilla. She would make a great mom but has not produced here. She is potty trained and has been shown.
$450 - Boy - Baby ebony boy. Will be weaned and available to go home 10/7/20
$400 - Boy - Baby gray sapphire carrier boy. Will be weaned and available to go home 10/30/20
$700 - Boy - Baby White mosaic boy, now 4 months old. He is a really interesting white mix and is going to change a lot before he is an adult. He will likely end up white with dark gray/black and light silver spots. Baby mosaics are always a mystery for the first year as they change color as they age. He is pictured with his sister in the first photo and when he was weaned in the second. He is super curious and a fun little guy.
$1000 - Boy - Black Velvet rpac baby. He does have a mane of longer fur around his neck but I expect that to disappear as he is only an angora carrier. His father is a mosaic angora with 3"+ long fur and his mom is a top quality black velvet. He is weaned and ready for a new home. He is extremely friendly and usually the first to meet you at the door.


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.

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). I will be wearing a mask and may be wearing gloves if I need to help you load something like a cage.

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