Grace is very friendly and accommodating.
Mel is awesome as well with helping. The chinchillas are definitely loved! Their room is clean and neat. Felt very comfortable leaving Fiona there. If you are in need of a chinchilla, I would highly recommend adopting from them!

We recently wanted to get some chinchillas for our home. After searching online for hours on how to go about this we came across We are a huge advocator for adopting animals and this being a rescue we were intrigued. After calling and talking to Tamara we were immediately sold. Right away we could tell she cared for every chinchilla that comes her way.

We arrived at her house to me our soon to be additions. Tamara let us meet a few of the chinchillas before we finally settled on a female couple. Tamara was very knowledgeable and answered every question we had. She even helped us get started with the treats they like and some toys.

We had an amazing time highly recommend Tamara at Chinchildren. We know we will be back the next time we adopt.

We adopted 2 beautiful, sweet bonded females from Tamara.

I was so happy to make the trip to meet her!

She sent me home with a wealth of knowledge and she had everything I needed to care for my new children.
She is so great at being available to answer so many questions.

Tamara is an amazing, loving, caring Chin mom to all of her kids!

We were so happy to meet our perfect girls. We look forward to many years of adventures with them.

I had to leave my beautiful, sweet chin with Tamara since I couldn't properly take care of her anymore. Tamara took wonderful care of her and when I called her up the other day, she said she was just adopted by a new family. Thank you so much Tamara! It's relieving to hear she's found a good home with people who will love her as much as I do. Please keep the amazing work up!

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 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.

I do not have a chinchilla ... but if I was to get one I would DRIVE FROM UTAH TO TEXAS just to use this lady. She loves these little guys like Jesus loves his Father in heaven. Speaking of heaven.... this is a chinchilla heaven!!!

Jasmine and I are an Air Force couple that was traveling down to Dallas from North Dakota to spend time with family through Thanksgiving. During the drive we were accompanied by our daughter Janette and our Chin Zorro. We brought him with us in hopes to find him a forever friend while we were in the area. We called chinchildren Chinchilla Rescue and were kindly greeted by Tamara. We set up a meet up time and arrived at her location and was met by Jonnie and Tamara's Grand daughter Kendall. They welcomes us with open arms and gave us the opportunity to meet their chinchilla family. Shortly afterwards we began what I can only describe as chin "speed dating" 😅 and began introducing our zorro to potential matches. We inevitably ran into a 3 year old male chin named "Gravity" and not only did Zorro but my wife and immediately gravitated to him (see what I did there 😉). We had a great interaction with many of the chins but Gravity was incredibly playful and was showing to be the perfect pairing for Zorro. Tamara and Jonnie were extremely accommodating and flexible to our many clarifying questions which put our minds at ease! If anyone is searching for a chins this is the place to find them as each of them are loved and accommodated for based if there are individual needs. To Tamara & Jonnie. Thank You for having us and blessing us with Gravity. Additionally, thank you for boosting my confidence as a chin owner. My wife "the chin whisperer" will continue making waves but we feel that our home is complete. In summary- we highly recommend Chinchildren as they are accommodating, friendly, and have amazing chins that are wait for a forever home.

Tamara is the most amazing, kind, loving chin mom!
I called her to ask some advice about my wonderful baby Chu Chu.
She was so informative, patient and helpful.
I can't wait to make the trip to see her and meet all of the ChinChildren and learn from her. She has the biggest heart and cares so much for the chinchillas and people she helps!

Sadly I had to surrender my chin.

But after visiting with Tamara I know that he's in good hands and is going to end up with a good home. I can't imagine anyone I'd trust more to take care of him.
