Review for Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue Inc, Granby, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been adopting from animal rescues since my family got our first ex-racing greyhound in 1984. So when I decided to adopt a chinchilla (my first chin had passed away) I found Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue. 4 years later I still consider myself extremely lucky to have found them! At first I wanted one but fell in love with a bonded pair. One year later I decided to adopt another pair. I now have 4 healthy chinchillas from them! And I can tell you that the rescues dedication does not stop at the adoptions. They have been helpful to me over the years in so many ways, answering questions, giving me healthy options for diet, environment, and housing for my 4 guys. The rescues owner has even gone so far as to help me find a vet who specialized in chinchillas, was local to me, trustworthy, and knowledgable. She continues to stay in contact with me to this day. It's a comfort to me knowing that I can still call and get any questions/concerns addressed. Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescues caring and love for both the chinchillas and their new families is truly neverending!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the happiness of the chinchillas the owner has worked with and contiunes to take into her care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the owners knowledge which has helped me continue to give my chinchillas healthy and happy lives. And her friendly attitude makes talking to her all the more enjoyable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, knowledgable, dedicated, and always striving to improve the lives of these little furry creatures.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

my guess would be continue their lifes work, which to me is bettering our world and society by improving the lives of the small creatures that have been neglected and/or abandoned.

Ways to make it better...

I have nothing negative to write here. I cannot imagine what they could do to improve.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial needs for the chinchillas and finding more forever homes for all of the many chinchillas that need a family of their own.

One thing I'd also say is that...

In this stressful, greedy, and sometimes violent world we live in this rescue gives of their money, time, energy, lives and even hearts and souls for the greater good of small, loving, and defenseless creatures. Most of us can learn a thing or two from their selflessness.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
