NWI Chinchillas

Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!​

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


We are finally living and operating out of Wolcott!

We still have hurdles to face and things to do, one of which being to get our rescue cages set up so that we can resume taking in rescues in the capacity we did before.  Some of this is reliant on having warmer weather, as everything needs to be washed, prior to re-assembly.  We hope to start working on this during warmer days in March.

As with any rescue, money is always something in short supply.  We did get a loan for putting in the furnace / AC unit into the chin-barn, and now begins the long journey of paying it back.  Coupled with our monthly $1000+ (yes, you read that right, one thousand dollars per month) propane bills *just* for the chin-barn, we are not likely to have funds to take in severe medical case rescues anytime soon.  

That said, we currently do have rescues here with us that will soon be up for adoption, and we are slowly bringing rescues in at this time.  Until we get the cages set up and some other related tasks completed, we do have a waiting list.  If you'd like to be added to the waiting list, please fill out our "Waiting List Form" which can be found HERE

If you have any desire to come out and help with the chinchillas / small animals and/or helping to make toys / houses / accessories / pack items that we sell at expos, please reach out.  We can use all the help we can get!  Also looking to hire someone local-ish for paid help -- contact if interested or pass it along!

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!


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.
