Adoptable animal of the week: Atlas

on January 22, 2013

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 Atlas.

Atlas is a handsome and mellow tabby boy, approximately four years old.  Atlas is occasionally playful when the right toy comes his way, but what he really loves to do is curl up in front of a sunny window and watch the world pass by.  He also loves a good chin-scratching.  Atlas is looking for a quiet home with a soft, cozy bed to curl up in and may be amenable to sharing his space with a mellow, respectful dog.  For more information about Atlas and to see his video, visit his Petfinder profile: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA.

Atlas has been sponsored by one of his many admirers, which means he is free for an approved adopter.  Atlas has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. To adopt Atlas, all household members must meet with him, whether they are roommates or family.

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.
