Andrea graciously agreed to take care of our chinchilla, Chile, while we traveled abroad. Upon entering Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue for the first time, my husband and I were in awe by what we saw; over 100 chinchillas organized in a colorful, calm and cool environment. We immediately noticed the time, attention and love Andrea invests in her rescue. Every chinchilla (or chin family) has a safe, clean cage, fresh food, water, nutritious treats, and an assortment of handmade chew toys, hammocks, ledges and hideaways. All of these products are also available to buy on her website, because Andrea wants chin owners to have access to the very best for their pets.
This summer, I volunteered at Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue. It was not until this experience that I realized how truly incredible this non-profit rescue is. Andrea pours her heart and soul into her passion, usually working late into the night. She monitors her chins closely, interacts with them constantly and caters to all chinchillas with special needs. She knows that many of these chins will stay with her forever because of the specific care they require. If a chinchilla has any medical complication or genetic history with the chance of problems in the future, she will not adopt him out. She only allows chins that are physically, emotionally and socially sound to leave her rescue. The health and happiness of all her chinchillas is Andrea’s priority.
Thank you Andrea, for all that you do for chinchillas!
As a volunteer at the Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue, I assist in the maintenance of the rescue including making all of the wood products for the cages and ensuring that the chinchillas have a safe and clean environment. I have known Andrea for 20+ years and have found her to be extremely passionate related to the care of chinchillas. She has created and documented a wealth of knowledge from personal experiences and from spending countless hours researching all manners of documentation available. This is evident based on the breadth and wealth of chinchilla information that can be found on the rescue website. Her tremendous dedication to the well being of the chinchillas makes me want to continue volunteering and supporting the rescue.
I have been a member of the board for this rescue for 5 years now. It is a tremendous asset to the rescue community. I never realized that there was such a need for a rescue for these wonderful little creatures. The facility is immaculately kept, with the comfort of chinchilla’s being the highest priority. Placement of the chin’s is done with extreme care for both the chin and the new owner.
