Welcome to NWI Chinchilla Rescue!

We have been located in Hammond, Indiana since 2003! It is not just cats and dogs that need loving homes. Chinchillas and other small animals and exotic pets need homes and rescuing too. Here at NWI Chinchilla Rescue, our main service is to take in small pets that their owners can no longer care for. Whether a child lost interest or went away to college or the family simply has no time, Chinchilla Rescue will be glad to shelter your small pet and find a new home for your chinchilla or small pet.

When you bring your small pet to our rescue shelter, we spend a month evaluating the chinchilla or other small animal's behavior and health to determine the best owner. After the month long quarantine and evaluation period, we put these lovable critters up for adoption! You can stop by the NWI Chinchilla Rescue and we'll help you find the perfect small pet or chinchilla for you and your family.

We have guinea pigs, rabbits, and rats available! View our website for more info.

NWI Chinchilla Rescue also provides grooming and carries all the supplies you could need for your new, or current, small pet or chinchilla. In our supply store, we carry:

Customer Testimonials

"My wife and I purchased two female degus for our daughter's 11th birthday. We couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Ashley. Her animals are all very well cared for, she is extremely knowledgeable and caring, and the animals we received are in excellent shape. Things couldn't have worked out better. I was also pleasantly surprised to find a follow up email one week after we picked them up, simply asking how they were doing. I highly recommend NWI Chinchillas and Ashley."
Tom Martin

"I recently adopted two male rats from Ashley and let me just say, I had an absolutely smooth adoption. Ashley had been there since day one to promptly answer any and all emails and questions I had. Her pet adoption facilities were impeccably clean, she was completely professional and knowledgeable, and the rats I adopted from her are absolute angels. If you are thinking about adopting a pet, I would wholeheartedly recommend taking your business here. I have a big business pet store five minutes away from my house but traveling a ways to adopt from Ashley is something that I absolutely do not regret. Ashley is the best, the pets are greatly taken care of, and now I am the owner of two lovable rat boys. I couldn't ask for more!"
Dana - Rat Adopter

We were interested in chinchillas and definitely wanted to 'adopt'. We came to the right place! Ashley was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient with us as my daughters and I asked our many questions. Ashley obviously has a big heart and a kind soul for doing all she does. An added convenience is that we were able to get everything we needed for our chinchillas from NWI Chinchilla Rescue. We are completely happy with Tabbouleh and Moon and never tire of their antics. They quickly became part of our family. We highly recommend NWI Chinchilla Rescue. Thank you, Ashley, for all your hard work."
Laura, Morgan, and Chloe - Three very happy chinchilla lovers

My 11-year-old son had been wanting a pet so I steered him towards a guinea pig since they are such nice little animals. I found Ashley and photos of guinea pigs up for adoption online. All worked out well and we now have 2 possible sibling guinea pigs. Both are calm and friendly and like to be held. I highly recommend working with Ashley. She is very knowledgeable, caring and you can feel confident about the pets you adopt!
Cathy Cameron - Happy guinea pig owner

Is your child ready for a pet, but your not sure what kind? Visit NWI Chinchilla Rescue for a relaxed, small pet! 14% off adoption fees!

Are you thinking that your child is ready for the responsibility of caring for a pet? Are you unsure of the best choice for your family?

Many people don't think of a chinchilla or small animal when they think of pet adoption. Come visit the relaxed small pets that could be perfect for your family! Chinchillas are very easy to care for, and the older chinchillas tend to be more relaxed and cuddly than some of the babies you'll find at a big-name pet store. Think about rescue and adoption of a chinchilla for your home.

NWI Chinchilla Rescue provides a month-long evaluation of the health and personality of all chinchillas brought to us. We make sure to match the correct chinchilla with your family. Make an appointment to visit our wide array of chinchillas and small animals to find the perfect pet for your family.
