Payment must be made in-full prior to an animal leaving our possession, or for transport to any show or event for pickup on-location. Buyers who make full payment must make arrangements for pickup within 90 days. Any animal still in our care after 90 days is subject to resale without refund to the original buyer. 

All deposits are required to be made via Square. Final purchase can be made via Square or cash. No exceptions!

PICKUP: Arrangements for pickup will not be made until a deposit has been received for said animal. Pickup arrangements are made by appointment only at our location in Olean, NY.

SHIPPING: Shipping is not currently available. We do provide routine transport through Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

Beginning January 1, 2022 we will be significantly reducing the amount of travel we conduct. Travel for pickup/delivery will be unavailable unless existing plans to travel are already in place, such as to a show or to visit our family in TN.

OUR GUARANTEE: All animals are sold in good health. Humble Acres Chinchillas will refund/replace the animal in question only if the following conditions have all been met:

  • Illness/death occurs within the first 7 days following purchase and can be proven by a veterinarian to have been contracted while in our care;

  • All care guidelines given by Humble Acres Chinchillas to the buyer were followed;

  • Genetic predisposition can be proven to have caused illness or death within the first two years;

  • Animal was bred by Humble Acres Chinchillas. Retired breeders, rescues, and animals not bred by us have no inherent guarantees. All Humble Acres-bred animals will feature the letters MHAC on their birth certificate/cage card.

Buyers have 60 days from the original date of requested refund/replacement to choose a replacement animal (of equal or lesser value) or opt instead for a refund. After 60 days, no refund or replacement will be given. 

Refunds/replacements will not be given in the event of fungus/ringworm. This is a common malady in chinchillas that often remains dormant until the animal is exposed to stress, such as that of moving to a new home. Luckily, it is easily treated with Tinactin foot powder in the dust bath, both as treatment if it appears and as a preventative measure in the humid months.

Humble Acres Chinchillas will always welcome back any chinchilla bred by us if their buyer determines they are no longer able to care for them. However, no money will be exchanged and the buyer must make arrangements for transportation of the animals to Humble Acres.


Each Humble Acres animal will go to its home with a sample of food for transition to a new feed, as well as a brief care guide, at no extra cost. Cages, dust, food and water containers, etc, are available for purchase.
