Adoptable Pet of the Week: Arlo

on December 3, 2013

Arlo is an exceptionally handsome 1-year-old white Labrador Retriever mix who will bring energy, enthusiasm and love to his new family. This medium-size four-legged citizen of Oakland arrived at the shelter in late September, and now Arlo really could use a good home. We are hoping you or someone you know will fit the bill and match his capacity for fun. If you’d love to run with him, or maybe play ball every day, or hike up in the hills, Arlo’s waiting for you! See photos and a description of Arlo here:

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. For more information and to view other adoptable pets, visit Oakland Animal Services online.
