Adoptable animals of the week: Ava and Nova

on November 27, 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 two cats named Ava and Nova.

This week’s adoptable animals are two sisters, Ava and Nova. Ava and Nova were adopted from Oakland Animal Services when they were kittens in May 2011. In October 2012, they were returned to the shelter because the adopters were moving. We would like to give the sisters another chance for a life together. Ava is the solid gray tabby, Nova has more white. Ava has the quieter temperament, Nova the more active. Both are gentle young adult cats.

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

The total adoption fee for Ava and Nova is $50. The fee includes their spays, microchips, 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.
