Target demographics: We travel throughout the New England region of the country.  We also travel to Southeastern parts of NY.

Geographic areas served: CT, MA, NH, VT, RI, Eastern NY

Mission:
We provide a healthy, loving home for unwanted and neglected chinchillas with permanent housing in our rescue and through adoptions. We educate/council the public about the physical and emotional needs of chinchillas so they learn how to provide these animals with a healthy, safe and happy life. We provide awareness of the hardships and mass breeding of chinchillas on ranches for pelting and the pet industry. In addition, we enlighten the public about the plight of the wild chinchilla in their natural habitat.
Results:
Since we opened our doors in 2003 we have rescued over 345 chinchillas.  Many were in neglectful or dangerous enviroments.  All the chinchillas receive medical care and are now living in healthy, clean and loving homes with new guardians through adoption or are permanent residence here at the rescue.  We spend individual time with all the chinchillas to help heal and rehabilitate them to be able to trust people and show their wonderful, spirited and intellectual personality.

We provide education about chinchilla care to current chinchilla guardians and those interested in becoming new ‘chin’ parents.

Over the years we have periodically expanded our rescue and we are now one of the largest full time, rescue only (we do not breed) chinchilla rescues in the US.

I have two chinchillas that have been happy and healthy for the past year. Then because they are so cute when I would give them a rosehips every nite, I decided to give 3-4. After a few weeks, their poop got really soft and wet. In a panic, I emailed Andrea from Forever Feisty to see what I should ... more »

Andrea from Forever Feisty Rescued me. Andrea is an amazing individual to give her life to these beautiful creatures. My son rescued two chinchillas. When one died he thought he would get another one to keep company. Well, two turned into fifteen. We were going along OK for about two years thinking ... more »
