Currently, we are only taking in surrenders that were originally sold by Carolina Chinchilla Ranch / Tiffany's Chinchillas. We are not taking in pet store chinchillas unless it's an emergency due to space constraints. We do not purchase chinchillas in any capacity as pets.
All surrenders that are brought in are checked for health issues before being placed up for adoption. We do not adopt out sick animals and they will stay here until they are well. All surrenders become the property of Carolina Chinchilla Ranch once turned over. We do not keep them long term - we strive to find loving homes for your animal if you can not.
We require a $25 surrender fee per animal and drop off by appointment at our home in Roxboro, North Carolina. We do not travel to pick up surrenders.
The surrender fee must be paid before the scheduled drop off appointment.
Cages and supplies are not required to be dropped off with the animals, but we only accept all metal cages with no plastic unless they are Ferret or Critter Nation. All safe supplies will go with the animals once they are adopted out. We do not take plastic supplies.
If you are interested in surrendering your chinchillas to us, please e-mail is for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our chins are kept in an area that is completely safe for them and where they will be taken care of. There is nothing to worry about in our care.
When we have single chins come in, we sometimes try to pair them up before they find new homes.
We select forever homes that we know that are going to take care of the chins that are surrendered.
