Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary visit required

Lilo is an amazingly friendly female chinchilla born sometime before 2006 (we think she is at least 11 years old). She is looking for a home where people have a lot of time to spend with her, as she loves chin scratches and even some belly rubs. She may be getting up there in years and she wants to make sure her next home is her perfect forever home, so she is asking people to come meet her and make sure everyone gets along great! She likes to hop, jump, and hang out in a cooler home, as her fur is super thick and temperatures over 80 degrees are too hot for her. If you are interested in Lilo, please fill out our Small and Furry adoption survey!
