A little more than a week ago, we assisted with the rescue of eight chinchillas that were abandoned in an apartment here in Kingston. While we were open to bringing the chins into our care, we knew it would be best for them to go to a dedicated chinchilla rescue.
Amazingly the Canadian Chinchilla Rescue offered to take all eight. We were able to round them up in the apartment – a difficult task as their cage was left open and the space was being renovated. It took about an hour and a half to get one hidden away in a wall, but we got all eight, including a mom and babies. They stayed overnight with us and then travelled to Mississauga where they have settled in very well!
