Adoptable Pet of the Week: Chumly

on January 7, 2014

Chumly is a gentle-natured, 2-year-old American Bulldog mix who has quickly become a volunteer favorite. He adores belly rubs and cuddles and will make a loving addition to any home. Chumly is a sponsored dog, which means a generous donor has covered his adoption fee.

To learn more about Chumly, visit his Petfinder profile: or stop by Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Ave. for a visit. We are conveniently located 3 blocks from the Fruitvale BART station.

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. To learn more about our other adoptable animals, visit
