Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!

We have a baby guinea pig up for adoption!  Check her out here!

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!


Due to Hammond law, we are required to move our business.  To make this easier, we are trying to get our herd down as small as possible for the move.  This means... At this time, we have put a hold on accepting chinchillas into our rescue.  We will continue to maintain a waiting list for intakes, so don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to be added to the list.  Our breeding chinchillas, however, will continue to produce kits and youngsters for sale.  Those will be the only changes to our inventory for the foreseeable future.  Stay tuned for more updates as our move progresses! -- 4/21/2020


Welcome to NWI Chinchillas!  We are a small hobby breeder of chinchillas located in Northwest Indiana -- specifically, Hammond, 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.
