Adoptable animal of the week: Ash

on November 6, 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 Ash.

Ash is a short-haired solid white male two years old. He has a  smudge pattern on the top of his head which may diminish as he gets  older. Ash is an active cat who loves to play, chase, and carry away his  prey to his special corner. He’s lovable, people-oriented, and will rub against you while letting you pet his stomach. Ash  tends not to get on with other cats or dogs, so should best be the only pet of the house.

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

Ash’s adoption fee is $35. The fee includes his neuter, microchip, and all vaccinations including rabies.   To adopt, all household members must attend whether family, roommates, or children.

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.
