Adoptable animal of the week: Gizmo

on December 6, 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 Gizmo:

Gizmo is a small, 2 year old terrier mix with a fun and happy personality. Go here to see photos and a video of Gizmo. You can also go to Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Gizmo.

This weekend, Gizmo and other “Shelter Favorites” are free to adopt. This Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 pm, the shelter will make its adoptable long-term dogs, cats and rabbits available for no-cost adoptions!. Adopt any dog, cat or rabbit who has been at the shelter for more than 60 days for free – adoption includes spay/neuter surgery, microchip, and vaccinations ($10 dog licensing fee not included for Oakland residents).

Full household must be present for all adoptions. Dog adoptions require proof of home ownership, or a landlord agreement showing an animal is allowed in residence.

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.
