Chinchillas often arrive at the shelter sick, injured, and suffering the results of owner neglect, abuse, or ignorance.  Most of these chins are from pet stores, backyard breeders, or birthing mills, and went to their new owners with no information on their care. SydChilla Chinchillas  was previously able to cover the vet expenses, but with an average of 45 chins being surrendered each year, Maine Chinchilla Shelter needs your help maintaining a veterinary fund for the shelter chins.
