- Two chinchilla brothers are looking for a new forever home now that their former owner is being deployed.
Boomer and Ascher are 5 years old and must be adopted together. Their needs are simple: a tall cage, a cool and quiet room, chinchilla pellets to eat. They are nocturnal and very active when awake...they love to move fast!

Interested? Call Dream Power at 390-7838 or watch this video.
