Are you looking to surrender your chinchilla(s)?*
We are in Central FL. We do not offer long distance meetups, it is the responsibility of the owner to bring the animal(s) to our care.
Please list them below with name, age, sex, and any history of where they came from.
Please give us a bit of background information, there are no judgements here. We understand that life and circumstances change, we are here to help if we can.
Did your chinchilla(s) come from Sunshine Chinchillas?*
Animals originating from our facility can come back to us at any time, no surrender fee required.
Do you understand that there is a surrender fee of $35 per chinchilla?*
This surrender fee is treated as a required donation to our rescue; it helps us to provide supplies, cages, and vet care to rescue chinchillas who need it.
Do you understand that the surrender fee must be paid within 24hrs of the inquiry?*
To secure a spot in our rescue, the surrender fee MUST be paid within 24hrs. We receive multiple inquiries a week and have limited space. We will move on to the next person in line if the fee is not paid in a timely manner.
Do you understand that the surrender fee is non-refundable? *
If you have paid the fee then decide not to surrender, fail to respond to our contact attempts, miss your surrender appointment, are hours late to the appointment, reschedule multiple times, or reschedule without giving 24 hours notice, the surrender fee will be forfeit and your reserved spot given to the next person waiting.
Do you understand that the animal(s) must be surrendered within two weeks of the fee being paid?*
If you do not respond to our contact attempts, reschedule multiple times, or fail to arrive for a surrender appointment, this will forfeit your surrender deposit.
Please give a brief description below, we like to set our rescues up in a similar way they were in their previous home. This helps them adjust to their new environment.
If you are surrendering the chinchilla(s) with a cage, do you understand the cage must be taken apart?*
If you have a wooden cage or one that cannot be taken apart, please keep this cage and we will use one of our own.
If no health concerns, please type "N/A"
If your chinchilla has a medical emergency, please contact a veterinarian immediately.*
Please give a timeframe
Do you understand that once an animal is surrendered to Sunshine Chinchillas, this animal and it's supplies becomes the property of Sunshine Chinchillas?*
Once the animal is in our care, we do not adopt the same animal back out to the owner who surrendered said animal if they change their mind after surrendering. Owners surrender all rights to the chinchilla(s) once the animals are in our facility.
