NWI Chinchillas

Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!​

Check out all the places you can come visit us! -------->

Check out the GoFundMe that our volunteer Chris set up for us!  This is to raise money for AC / furnace / HVAC for the new barn for the chinchillas!

NEWS!! WE HAVE MOVED! ...and are moving again!

We have finally closed on our new property in Wolcott, Indiana, and are preparing the barn (see gofundme above) for it's new inhabitants!

We DO currently have animals available -- check our Available Chins pages for chinchillas and Available Critters pages for rabbits / guinea pigs / hamsters.  

We are NOT currently taking in rescues (though feel free to ask to be added to our waiting list).  We ARE still selling many supplies, and are working on replenishing items that are currently out of stock!


Coronavirus Update

We are still OPEN !! Pet supplies are essential for life.

We can mail supplies, do a porch pickup, or do in-person supply pickups and adoptions. Let us know what you need!


Welcome to NWI Chinchillas! We are a small hobby breeder of chinchillas located in Northwest Indiana -- specifically Wolcott, Indiana.   We are members of both MCBA and ECBC, and currently own quite a few chinchillas of our own, as well as all the rescues.  Our ranch brand is MNWI.

We also do chinchilla and small animals/exotics rescue - we will take in chinchillas and other small animals/exotics that need a good home and adopt them out to new homes.  For more information, please visit our "NWI Chinchilla Rescue" page.

All of our chinchillas are pets first, breeders second.  We breed only quality pedigreed chinchillas with great personalities, to produce kits that are friendly, whether they end up as pets or breeders.  We handle all kits from day one, and rescues from the day they arrive, so our chinchillas are socialized and used to human contact when they are ready to go home with their new owners.
