Adoptable animal of the week: Spring

on September 4, 2012

Oakland North is continuing with our feature. Every week, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility. This week it’s a cat named Spring.

Spring is a short-haired, black-and-white tuxedo-patterned female 1-2 years old. She is an active cat with a strong will and a soft nature. During quiet moments, she appreciates a cozy cardboard box for refuge or simply for a safe snooze. Spring does not do well with young children, dogs, or other cats. As the only cat in the house, however, she will purr next to you. Visit Spring’s Petfinder profile to read more and see her videos: You can also visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Spring.

Spring’s adoption fee is $20, the special September adoption fee for a black or black-and-white cat at Oakland Animal Services. (The standard cat adoption fee is $35.) The fee includes her spay, microchip, and all vaccinations including rabies.

To adopt, all household members must attend whether family or roommates.

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.
