Pat is a ball girl extraordinaire

Adoptable Animal of the Week: Pat

on October 8, 2013

It’s the small things in life that make this loving brindle-coated pit-bull mix happy: a new tennis ball, belly rubs, a romp in the park. Pat is just a year old with a sturdy medium build — not very large. This amber-eyed sweetie has been at the shelter for a while, and it’s time that she gets the loving home she deserves. Could Pat be just the right girl to fetch your heart? Check out her photos and video and then come check her out in person.

Please visit her Petfinder profile to view additional photos and a video clip. For still more information, log onto the Oakland Animal Services website, or visit in person at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA. You can also call: (510) 535-5602. Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both an Animal Control unit (in charge of the city’s public safety and animal welfare) and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals within its facility.
