Adoptable Animal of the Week: Turnip
on December 7, 2010
Oakland North is continuing with our new feature. Every Tuesday, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility. This week it’s Turnip:
Turnip is a Chihuahua mix and is two or three-years-old. He’s a small dog, only about seven pounds, but gets along well with other small dogs. He loves chasing tiny tennis balls and can entertain himself for a while with a treat stuffed toy. He’d love to be adopted by someone who would play with him, love him and maybe give him a couple of walks a day. Ideally a home with older children or maybe no children would be the best fit for Turnip. For the month of December, Oakland Animal Services is offering a $25 adoption deal for all Chihuahuas, this includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, exam and microchip. Please consider giving Turnip a home. To see a video and more photos of him, click here. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Turnip, his number is 34103.

Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both an Animal Control unit—which is in charge of the city’s public safety and animal welfare—and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals within its facility.
