06.05.2010. There's a high demand for chinchilla rescue work in Ontario right now, far too many chinchillas are bought without enough research and end up neglected, sick, then cast aside to shelters or another worse home. If you're interested in providing a healthy, happy forever home, please check out the forum, specifically this thread.
04.12.2010. Ferret Nation cages are on sale at Petsmart. This is a fantastic cage for adult chinchillas, very durable, great size, and brilliant when the shelves are replaced with wood shelves. It is highly recommended by a vast number of chinchilla owners, and have been difficult to find in Canada in the past without expensive shipping involved. Sale on till possibly april 27th. www.petsmart.com Ferret Nation Cage.
06.22.2009. There are lots of chinchillas in need of homes. Please, before buying from a pet store, check out Kijiji, forums and our classifieds first, as pet stores won't replenish if the chins aren't selling, but previously owned chinchillas that need homes will end up in shelters or worse. Help the animals truely in need, and keep the unnecessary pet store demand low.
