Fetch ME a Home: September 2nd, 2017

Fetch ME a Home for Saturday, September 2nd at 730am.

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- This week's featured animal shelter is the Maine Chinchilla Shelter, starring its chinchilla friends!

The Maine Chinchilla Shelter is back after a break this summer; as the temperature slowly falls, it becomes more comfortable for the "chins" to travel. Chinchillas need to be kept in temperatures averaging 60 degrees to be healthy. These little critters have some of the thickest fur you can find on any land mammal, so they get overheated easily. 

The chinchillas that come from this Augusta-based shelter have been rescued from hoarding situations, surrendered, or abandoned. They are all looking for homes that are willing to learn how to properly take care of a chinchilla so that they can live long, healthy, happy lives!

If you would like to adopt a chinchilla, contact the Maine Chinchilla Shelter to learn how.
