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

Rating: 5 stars  

When Andrea called to ask if I would be interested in helping out Forever Feisty Chinchilla Rescue, my response as an animal lover was a quick "sure!" Every experience with the organization has proven that these folks take their mission seriously and put their animals' welfare first. Besides Andrea's made with love food and wellness products, (no wondering where it comes from or if it's OK for your little one) the rescue itself is surely heaven on earth for the chins. Spotless is the only description for the townhouse style neighborhood, with plenty of bright light, fun colors, and it's own recreation/"park" area. The chins are the stars here, though (sorry to the human landlords!). They are clearly happy and comfortable in the temperature controlled environment as evidenced by the well loved chew toys and darling personalities of the chins I was thrilled to handle. Most chins have carefully chosen roommates or if not, nearby neighbors serve as company for those in single units. Hearing some of the tales of woe these now lucky chins have had to endure before arriving at Forever Feisty, and then seeing them in their current digs, is enough to redeem one's faith in the human race.

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

the obvious contentedness of the rescued chinchillas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do so only under extreme duress! No changes are necessary!

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

feeling great knowing I'm supporting a worthy cause.

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

tireless in their dedication and love for animals.

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

really take things to the next level! (see challenges section)

Ways to make it better...

I could have cuddled ALL the chins.

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

too many chins still in need, not enough room or money for all of them.

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

you, too, can support this great organization! Start today and feel good about being a good steward for the creatures of our planet.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
