Adoptable animal of the week: Joey
on April 9, 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 Joey.
Joey, an all-white boy, was rescued from a flea market with his brother and sister. His feet and tail were dyed pink and he’d been kept in poor living conditions, but that was more than one year ago (January 2012). Now his fur has grown out and he is happy and healthy boy looking for his forever home. He is a curious little fellow and at the same time cautious, but he warms up quickly to gentle souls.
You can read more about Joey at http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/23754775 or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA.
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.
