Oregon Chinchilla Rescue

Live. Love. Rescue.

Preparing for opening  

3/17/22
We are working on opening up, hopefully at the end of the month. Things are still a bit hectic as we are trying to finish taking care of some personal things related to the passing of some family members.

Chinchillas For Adoption

Unless otherwise noted all chinchillas are intact and therefore can only be housed alone, with animals of the opposite gender that have been spayed/neutered, or with animals of the same gender.

A Few Photography Notes
Photos posted may be a chins intake photo. The majority of intake photos frequently show matted/greasy fur, urine stains, or other issues. These temporary issues are usually gone within 2 to 6 weeks after arriving, depending on the severity. Photos will be updated periodically, however most chins get adopted before we take and post their updated photos.

Our photographs are not intended to be professional quality, we intend them to be fun and quirky. The majority of "props" (i.e. toys) used in our photos are typically only used for the photo session and only while properly supervised.


Adoptable & Available Soon Chins


Kayla

600;450;a3ea7be17bd7ce6f23139a3e1366c6cd9062847d

Status:       Available
Gender:     Female
Color:        Standard Grey
Est. Age:   Almost 3 years


Notes: Kayla came to us as a transfer from the Humane Society of SW Washington on July 7, 2019. We unfortunately had to remove her matted fur when she arrived and it had a pretty big impact on her trust for a while. She's now doing much better and looks forward to having her out-of-cage time. She needs an owner that will not slack on her care and can provide a lot of items to chew on, as she's an aggressive chewer.

Status:      Available
Gender:    Male
Color:        Standard Gray
Est. Age:   


Notes: 


"Colton"

 

 

 

 


 

 

Status:       Available
Gender:     Male
Color:        Hetero. Beige
Est. Age:   


Notes: Colton is a very wonderful boy, he was truly loved and spoiled in his previous home (he came in with Theodore, but they cannot be housed together). He's accustomed to having a rather large cage with ample out of cage running/play time. A truly exceptional home will be needed for Colton.


"Taylor"

 

 

 

 


 

 

Status:       Available
Gender:    Male
Color:        Standard Gray
Est. Age:   


Notes: Taylor is another chin that was raised in a ranch-type cage and setting. Therefore being handled and worked with seems to be pretty foreign with him. He is slowly progressing with having people do stuff in his cage as well as being handled. Treats are a way to his heart! Despite being very jumpy, Taylor has not bit/nipped and therefore I believe that he simply needs a home with patience and understanding. He currently has a tendency to hide his face in your arm when being held.

Upon arriving Taylor had very matted fur and needed some extensive grooming with a grooming comb, it will take a while for his bald spots to fill in and grow back to length.


Dusty

600;450;f3dc893b510f75fa818ff973e0c9250e9dc7d7a1600;450;3856a4885886de34cfd7f9366caaef4cf327aee7600;450;ae1e99c428863e9de6fe62edec77b64a4a42cbad

Status:      Available
Gender:    Male
Color:        Standard Gray
Est. Age:   7-8 years


Notes: Dusty has a very curious personality and somewhat knows his name. He was previously housed with a brother that passed away. His family feels that a home where he can get lots of out-of-cage time would be ideal. He has a very sweet disposition and would be an ideal chin for a first time owner. Dusty loves to say hello to everyone at his cage door and loves being held and getting attention.


"Sassy"

 

 

 

 


 

 

Status:      Available
Gender:    Female
Color:        Standard Gray
Est. Age:   


Notes: Sassy is a little bit of a handful, hence her name. She prefers hanging out in her cage and being catered to with hay and treats. Sassy's cage buddy passed away and since then she has not been willing to accept another cage buddy. She does however enjoy chattering with other nearby chins.

Notes: Cherub came to us with a large group of chins and was severely matted. We are still working on handling and grooming a lot of loose fur our of her coat (as pictured) but she is turning out to be a very wonderful girl.
