"I lost my beloved Roxy on January 24, 2020. I never thought I would get another Chinchilla because she was my everything....
A week later when I went to my Exotic Vets Office and my Vet told me that I had a gift with Chinchilla's, she really made me open my eyes and realize I'm meant to have another one when the time was right. Friends and family agreed.
About a month later I was referred to Sunshine Chinchillas and was wanting a Female Black Velvet this time as my last was a Standard Gray.
Initially they weren't going to have any available until late summer. But as the Pandemic came in place Jennifer reached out to me (we stayed in contact throughout the months) and said to me I was going to keep our female Black Velvet Kit for our program (She was born the day after Roxy passed mind you!) But she felt she was the right fit for me and said she was thinking of me. And she was right! It was literally meant to be. I feel there was a reason this happened and Roxy was sending her to me. And being born the day after Roxy passed, I was mind blown.
I have stayed in touch with Sunshine Chinchillas giving them updates on my Luna. I take her to my exotic vet once yearly. She is 2.5 years old now. She is such a beautiful sassy diva, but so lovey and friendly and I couldn't ask for anything more.
I will always get my chins from them. Their knowledge, kindness, communication and support is incredible. I highly recommend them and am so grateful!
Thank you guys so much!"

~ Ron ~
"We had an amazing experience adopting from Sunshine Chinchillas. They are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Ron was adopted 2 years ago and has become my daughter's best friend. He perks up when we call his name and runs to be let out when we walk into the room."

~ Dobby ~
"April 28, 2020 my life changed forever. That's the day I adopted Dobby from Sunshine Chinchillas. My sweet boy has grown to be a snuggle bug and I'm completely in love with him. He loves dandelion treats, sleeping in his hammock, and enjoys playing with my dog, Sophie. Even though Dobby was rescued, he was definitely the one who rescued me. He makes me so happy and makes my home feel complete."

~ Cleopatra ~
"I adopted Cleo in May of 2020 and it's been nothing but love these past two years. She has really come out of her shell and has such the little personality. She loves her snacks and quality time. I'm so happy to have gone through the adoption process with Sunshine Chinchillas. They are very friendly, informative, and helpful. If I could do it all over again, I would!"

~ Simon ~
"The other day I rescued a female chinchilla from a friend of mine. I have four males so I told her I will take it in and see if I can find a rescue that will take her in because I can't keep her with my four males. So I messaged all these rescues and one recommended me to Sunshine Chinchillas. I went on their website and got their number and I texted. The lady messaged me back, I filled out the form and everything and when I dropped the female off, she told me about a male chinchilla that couldn't find a home, I told her I have a male just like him. I would love to take him when she told me, I was shocked because I was looking for one more male and it just felt right when she said you can adopt him.
I just I felt like that's what I needed to do to show Simon that he has a great home that will love and care for him, will be there for him, and not give up on him. So we met the next day, when I took him home he just stared at me and looked at me but on the way home he let me pet his nose and everything. When I got him out he was a little scared but when I picked him up and put him in my arms he just laid his head right on my shoulder.
I felt that bond with him, I felt like even though he kept getting returned I'm not going to return him because I know how he feels. I know that he couldn't find a good home because of what was going on with him, but I took him home and put him in a cage and now he is doing great. He took a treat out of my hand and he's gonna have a loving home with me just like my other four I have. I love all my chinchillas, they are my family they are my kids."
