Adoptable animal of the week: Dolly

on October 30, 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 dog named Dolly.

Dolly is a 56 lb, 3-year-old hound mix who has been at the shelter since July. Her fees have been sponsored by a donor, so she is free to a qualified home (regular application process still applies). She loves people, knows “sit,” and likes to play fetch. Other dogs are a little overwhelming to her, so she would prefer to be an only dog, but she might be able to live with a cat. She is probably housebroken, as she tries to “hold it” in her kennel. She’s been attending obedience class at the shelter and her adopter can continue to take her to class for free. You can see pictures and video of Dolly here: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Dolly.

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.
