Chinchillas Are Waiting For New Homes

There are many chinchillas being kept as pets. Subjectively, I believe most of them are in homes unsuited for these rodents whose looks make them more “likable” than for example rats. Since chinchillas can live for up to twenty years chances are they will not be kept by the same people their whole lives. These little animals come from the Andes mountain range, do not like heat nor high humidity. But more often than not, they have to live in surroundings totally unsuitable for them. And then there is their beautiful fur. Some people would rather wear their chinchilla as coat than take care of the live animal.

“Valley View Chinchilla Ranch masqueraded as a breeder of “pets,” despite slaughtering, skinning, and selling the pelts of any chinchillas who supposedly did not “work out” as companions and even going so far as to hide its involvement in the fur industry—including a freezer containing pelts—from the public. The facility owner admitted to denying chinchillas veterinary care, performing painful medical procedures—including limb amputations—herself without pain relief, and using a method of painful electrocution deemed “unacceptable” by the American Veterinary Medical Association.”
