Adoptable animal of the week: Roz

on October 16, 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 Roz.

Roz is a two-year-old short-haired tortoiseshell. She is the perfect match for anyone who likes their cat to be an interactive part of the household. Roz is super friendly, likes human companionship, and is not hesitant to let you know what she is thinking. If you like extroverted cats, Roz is the perfect choice for you.  Roz should go to a home without a dog or another cat.

For more information about Roz and to see her video, visit her Petfinder profile: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Roz.

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.

Roz’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, roommates, or children.
