I called Tamra Tuesday afternoon crying because my chinchilla had just had 4 premature kits. Excessively tiny closed eyes and skin and bone.she has been an amazing help.at first mom wanted nothing to do with the kits the 3hour mark hit and still nothing so I go to petsmart and get some kitten formula because I was ready to bottle feed these kits if I had to…when I called Tamra she told me I could bring them out to her,within the first 3 minutes of talking to her. She’s flat out amazing and I can’t wait to start working with her as a volunteer.

Haven't visited the rescue center yet for a meet and greet, but I will in the future when the time is right. Contacted Tamara on the phone this afternoon. Asked a few questions and had a little bit of an education course about chinchillas. She's very knowledgeable about these cute little guys and most helpful. I'm more than likely going to be using her for future reference.


I was checking into getting a chinchilla for a grandson and Tamara was really helpful and seemed really knowledgeable. I forwarded her name an number to the grandson's mom so she could continue her quest for a chinchilla. I liked the fact that Tamara will give tours and is available to answer any and all questions.

I just adopted a chinchilla from ChinChildren Chinchilla Rescue. He's the sweetest! Tamara is the best, the kids really loved her and our new chin! She carries all chinchilla supplies as well. I encourage you to buy from her! She answered all the question we had. Thank you so much Tamara

Tamara is awesome! It is very evident that the animals, especially the chinchillas, have a nice & clean environment. After we got done helping set things up for the chins we dropped off, its like they were in a chinchilla penthouse! She had everything those little guys could ever need or want! She was so nice, and it was a great pleasure to meet her. You can't go wrong with Tamara!

Our Old lady Chinchila Misty was having some health issues after 16 years with us as part of our family..We called Tamara late one night and she inmediatly gave us lots of advise she is very knowledgeable about chinchillas.After a few days Misty health deteriorated and she went to sleep forever. Thank You very much Tamara for all the help you offered to us during this difficult times.

Tamara is extremely knowledgeable about Chinchillas! We bought ours from a pet store and we misinformed of the actual care Chinchillas need. We were sold a small cage in which she was miserable. We bought her a larger cage with multiple levels but the bars were too wide and she kept escaping. Our chin basically took over a room in our home and as we are moving into a much smaller place soon it became clear that we could not care for her properly. Though we miss her, we know she is in good hands with Tamara! If we are in a position to get another Chin in the future I will definitely check with her first about her rescues. Thank you for taking our little sweetie Tamara, and for helping her find a forever home! You are appreciated!

I’ve always wanted a chinchilla since forever and I live in a place where Chinchillas are not in petstores anymore and when they did they were not in proper closures and looked sad but with Tamara her chinchillas are happy and healthy and I also adopted a boy and is very sweet and her prices are awesome!!!!

Tamara was very helpful during the adoption of our second chin. We received all sorts of tips and tricks for these wonderful animals. Her prices were affordable and the experience was one of a kind! Would highly recommend for anyone looking to adopt a chinchilla
