Oregon Chinchilla Rescue

Live. Love. Rescue.

We will be open again soon!

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.

Contact Us

When contacting OCR I ask that you keep in mind that we are operated by an individual and not a whole team of people or volunteers. During busy times it will unfortunately take me longer to reply to every email and message. Along with this I am currently learning our new web/email host and provider.

Volunteering and Fostering
We currently do not have opportunities for volunteering or fostering. We have tried to implement both numerous times (as recently as October 2021), but due to thefts, no call/no show, and other reasons we have decided against both (for now).

Are you interested in adopting?
If you are interesting in adopting and have not adopted from us before, we require that you read through the Adoption Information page prior to contacting us. Once you have done so, please send us an email at

Are you interested in Surrendering a chin?
If you are interesting in surrendering, please feel free to read through our Surrender Information, submit a Surrender Inquiry or send us an email with any questions or concerns to

Other Contact (Including transfers)
Please send us an email at


We do not post our address online.

When we have done so it resulted in people stopping by at all hours without appointments (getting mad and yelling when we wouldn't drop everything for them), theft, harassment, and animals being dumped on our door step.

Thank you for your understanding.
