Adoptable animal of the week: Melanie

on September 25, 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 Melanie.

Melanie is a beautiful short-haired silver tabby female about two-years-old. Independent and undemanding, Melanie will come to  you when she wants your attention. She is playful and also enjoys lounging in the sun, so will take advantage of any available sunny window. Melanie should go to a home with no children under 12-years-old and also a home without dogs. For more information about Melanie and to see her videos, visit her Petfinder profile: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Melanie.

Melanie’s 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.
