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.

Current payment methods are cash only. 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 am available to meet by appointment on the weekends or after 6PM during the week. If you have a specific chinchilla you would like and want to put a hold on them it is a $20 non-refundable deposit that is good for 7 days. This goes towards the purchase price of the chinchilla. Please be on time. I understand things happen but please keep in touch/text me if you are going to be late or miss an appointment. Once you make a deposit on a chinchilla you have one week/(7) days to pick up the chinchilla. After the 7 days the deposit is forfeit (Honestly I don't make money on this just tired of time wasters).

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. Ryerson Chinchilla Makes what is considered the best metal chinchilla carriers in the industry. Any small wire cage with wire spacing 1" x 1" or less is acceptable.
