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

Rating: 5 stars  

I visited Forever Feisty Chinchillas with a friend several weeks ago. My friend has already adopted four chinchillas through Andrea and was stopping by for a visit. Although I am not a chinchilla owner, I have adopted all of my prior pets through shelters and rescues (my current cat is a rescued feral). I was very impressed by the quality of care that Andrea provides to her chins. Their living space is immaculately clean and well-organized, and the chins are friendly -- some, even curious. I interacted with a few of them, and they were friendly, calm and curious. Andrea spends the majority of her time caring for and being involved with her chins, and it shows! She explained that she will not adopt to "just anyone" and is very concerned with placing her chins with those who are committed to learning how to care for one properly. Some of her chins have been rescued from situations where they were not properly cared for, and she is committed to making sure the situation does not repeat itself. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in learning more about chinchillas or is interesting in adopting one to contact Forever Feisty Chinchillas. Andrea is a wealth of knowledge and experience and she clearly is committed to the work that she does.

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

My friend's chinchillas were adopted through this rescue, and they are healthy, friendly, well-adjusted animals. This is a testiment to the work that was done prior to their adoption.

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

Very committed to their cause. Andrea has made the chinchillas her life's mission and work, and it clearly shows. She is very educated about their care and goes out of her way to do and provide the absolute best for them.

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

Do even more. Much of the public funding goes to shelters that cater to dogs & cats, and unfortunately, there are growing numbers of exotics that lose because there aren't enough places to take them. Andrea is just one person fighting a hard battle.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
