Adoptable animal of the week: Kirsten

on February 5, 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 rabbit named Kirsten.

February is Adopt-a-Rescued-Rabbit month!  Meet Kirsten, she has been at the shelter since January 2012 and would love to find a home.  She comes off as shy, but when she is in her playful mode she is actually very curious when you come by to visit her.  When she’s in sleepy mode, she likes to have her beauty sleep in peace.  She was recently featured as a Bay Area Proud Pet of the Week on NBC Bay Area.  You can see how great she can be while being held.  As a long-term shelter resident, her adoption fee has been waived to a qualified home.

She her profile here: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA.

You can watch her piece on NBC at:

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.
