Cuddle a Chinchilla?

VHS has recently rescued a family of Chinchillas, one of which was born in care. These are all young animals, under 3 years old, with a lifespan of about 10 years. Chinchillas make great pets and are very tame and sweet. An ideal apartment pet. But they also have special dietary needs and must be fed a proper Chinchilla food. And they have very sensitive body temperatures and must be kept in even heat, not too hot or cold. They love hay, dust baths and they love you. These are not typically litter trainable but they do need time and exercise outside of a caged environment. They are not overly messy – and you will easily learn to manage their free roaming time.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
