Adoptable animal of the week: Wesley

on October 25, 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 Wesley:

Wesley is a 5 month-old male tabby who likes to play but doesn’t enjoy the company of other cats and kittens, so would prefer to be the only cat in an adult home. Go here to see photos of Wesley. You can also go to Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Wesley.

Wesley, and other cats who have been waiting for more than 30 days for a home, are $10 to adopt for a limited time. The fee includes spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccinations. The full household must be present to adopt.

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.
