Pet of the week: Chloe


By Scott Delucchi, Peninsula Humane Society.

The popularity of birds as pets is soaring. Meet Chloe, a sweet, 9-year old conure, available for adoption at the Peninsula Humane Society's Center for Compassion in Burlingame.

A conure is a type of small parrot that makes a great family pet. Chloe is a beautiful, multi-colored bird with a mix of silky green, white, and orange feathers.

Chloe is very social and enjoys meeting new people, although she can be a little cautious at first. She is a very vocal bird who loves to chirp happily in her cage and snack on fruits and vegetables. But don't let your kids sneak their veggies to her.
