Pet of the Week – Oreo

No doubt about it. Oreo is a looker! He’s also a truly sweet 8-year-old cat who loves being around people. His friends at the shelter say Oreo has a funny and curious personality. On top of that, he’s a major purr-machine!

This big boy loves to lounge about so if you want a Netflix buddy, come meet Oreo. He’ll be waiting for you at the County’s animal care facility in Carlsbad. The shelter is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and is located at 2481 Palomar Airport Road.

Oreo’s animal ID number is A1739844 and his adoption fee is only $35. That includes current vaccinations, viral testing, a microchip and registration, flea control plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
