    Hey there,

    I have been fostering a female chinchilla (Koala) who is now ready for rehoming. She is approximately 1 year old and hasn't had the best start in life.

    She was abandoned to me with 3 other chinchillas who were being kept as a group. Unfortunately there was a male amongst them and she was pregnant. All the other little chinchillas have been rehomed including her lovely healthy baby boys and now it's her time to find her forever home.

    Her confidence has came on a lot in the last few months and she is now a very inquisitive little thing. She is friendly but will need more handling and time to get used to a new owner and build her trust.

    I am looking to home to a pet home only, no breeders. She can come with cage if needed.

    If anyone feels they would be able to offer Koala a loving forever home please feel free to get in contact.

    Thank you for reading

    Amanda

    she is beautiful, shame you are so far away

    just a word of warning, the shelves in that cage, in the third pic, look to be plywood, which is actually toxic if chewed so it should really be re shelved asap if that is the case, you can pick up solid untreated pine selves from b&q for a few quid a shelf

    Hi there,

    Just a quick update,

    I am still looking to find Koala her forever home due to other homes not being suitable. If you feel you can offer her a loving home please feel free to get in contact.

    Thanks

    Hi there,
    Are you still looking for a new home for her? I've always loved Chinchillas but never owned one, I would be interested in finding out more about how to care for them and what equipment I will need in order to give her the care she needs?
    Thanks, Ashley

    Sorry just realised this thread is from March 2011 .. and that this is 2012!! Silly me .. im hoping she has found a new home by now since it's been so long, but if not get in touch, Thanks!

    Whereabouts are you? If this Chinny has been re-homed I know of a couple that are looking for homes.
