Make a match, not coats

 

By Scott Delucchi | ==I Peninsula Humane Society

The Peninsula Humane Society's 3-year-old chinchilla, Streisand, needs a forever home, ideally without small children.

Wikipedia describes chins as "crepuscular animals, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels." This means they are most active at dawn and dusk (as opposed to nocturnal animals and diurnal animals, which are active during the day) and they are chubby-looking.

We shouldn't make light of the "coat" joke. Chinchillas have long been hunted for their ultra-soft fur; one coat would require 150 Chinchilla pelts.

Streisand is confident, curious, and active. She loves to run, jump, chew, take treats from your hand, explore her surroundings and take dust baths.

For more information, visit the Peninsula Humane Society's Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame or go to www.phs-spca.org.
