East Bay pets of the week for Aug. 20 – East Bay Times

Darby is the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society’s pet of the week. (photo courtesy of the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society) 

I’m Darby, a sweet, older, quirky-lookin’ lad looking for a quiet home. I had an ear infection and dental disease when I arrived to Berkeley Humane. I got a cleaning and painful teeth extracted (leaving me with few, so I only eat wet food), but my mouth feels great.  My ear infection has been a work in progress and has come a long way. For having gone through so much, I have a very loving temperament and would be a great companion in a relaxed (adult only) home!

Rose is the pet of the week at the East Bay SPCA, Oakland. (photo courtesy of the East Bay SPCA, Oakland) 

Shakespeare wrote, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” So, what’s in a name?

 Rose the American Pit Bull Terrier mix has such a sweet personality that getting to know her is a pleasure. Rose is a Go-Getter, and if you want to get more exercise this is a good pet for you. Her happy eyes and wagging tail say, “Let’s GO!”  Like the sun, she seems to have tapped into an endless supply of energy. Learn how to adopt Rose at eastbayspca.org/how-to-adopt. Learn how to adopt me at eastbayspca.org/how-to-adopt.

Do you need a sweet older companion you can take out for walks and hang out with? Meet 7-year-old, 15-pound terrier Max. He’s good with other pets and probably kids, and just an all-around awesome little guy, if a bit timid at first. Max and dozens of other dogs and cats are available at Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter’s three-day Adoption Fair, today through Sunday (Aug. 20-22), 11 am. to 4 p.m. each day, at 1590 Fortmann Way. All visitors must wear a mask and provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result within the last 72 hours. Come to the Fair and take home love!

Deb is the Contra Costa SPCA’s pet of the week. (photo courtesy of the Contra Costa SPCA) 

Deb is just a doll who is a wonderful, happy, confident kitten! So loving, brave, playful and spunky. She’s a small kitty at about 15 weeks. She’s got loads of personality who likes to follow you around and see what you’re doing at all times. Her quiet time might be sitting on your chest staring at you until you scratch her head. She purrs all day, loves dogs and other cats and never scratches hands when she plays, which makes her great for a family with kids. For more information or to arrange to meet her please call Michele with Contra Costa SPCA(CCSPCA) at 510 750-8150.
