Pending Pickup Boy - Baby Black Velvet sc pvc boy. Will be available 6/10/21
$500 Boy - Baby Ebony boy. Will be available 6/10/21. I feel like this one needs a warning, his nickname is crabby patty. He is a legit pest, he wants everything you have, your hand, whatever you are holding and clings to the side of the cage and shakes it until you come over. Then he crabs at you like a hissing cat ready to strike. Get him out and he is a sweet little cuddler. He sure puts up a bluff though, not sure where he got it from as his brother, mom and dad are very quiet and sweet. I would only recommend this baby if you don't mind some drama in your life. It is likely his teenage mood swing stage will give you whiplash.
$600 Boy - Tan white blue diamond carrier, this sweet guy is two years old and potty trained. He gets along well with other chinchillas and is a fun guy to play with. He has really pretty blue eyes.


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.

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 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.
