Adoptable Animal of the Week: Woodrow

on March 22, 2011

Oakland North is continuing with our 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 Woodrow:

Woodrow is a typical happy-go-lucky Labrador mix. He adores people, is constantly smiling and wagging his tail, which has made to volunteers at Oakland Animal Services fall in love with him. Woodrow likes to explore but also does well on leash. Being only one-years-old, though, Woodrow needs reminding of some manners and would do best in a home with someone who is committed to working with him. He is picking up “sit” very quickly and treats seem to keep him motivated. Woodrow is already fixed, so he is ready to leave the shelter and join a new family today. Please consider giving him a home. For more photos of Woodrow, click here. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Woodrow. You can also go to

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.
