All donations are gratefully received, no matter how big, no
matter how small as every penny counts.
Thank you for your support.
It is growing increasingly difficult for us to raise enough funds to pay for the vets fees as well as providing their food and toys.
Not only do we pay any outstanding invoices when funds are low ourselves, but we give all of our free time into running our rescue, day and night, including many sleepless nights.
Your donations are needed to help us give these lovely chinchillas the life they deserve.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our vet, who has supported us in every way possible.
Please see our rescue stories to see what the chinchillas donations have been spent on. Thank you for your support.
Sadly, many of the chinchillas coming into our rescue are suffering from malocclusion.
We try to make their lives as comfortable as possible with the help of our vet, but when their quality of life is affected, then we have to say goodbye and they go over the rainbow bridge to a better place free from pain.
We do not have photos for all the chins we rescue - sometimes
taking a photo is not appropriate.
