East Bay SPCA

Jude Paw, a 1-year-old, domestic longhair cross, is the East Bay SPCA's pet of the week. Like all sidekicks, he's just plain good company. He likes attention but also likes solitude. He doesn't go looking for trouble, but he's no scaredy cat. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.

Meet Jude Paw at the East Bay SPCA Oakland Adoption Center at 8323 Baldwin St., Oakland, CA 94621. We are celebrating the aCATemy Awards through March 3. That means that all cats donning their "formal wear" (all black, all white or black-and-white) will have a $24 adoption fee. Visit www.eastbayspca.org/awards to see more adoptable animals, or call 510-569-0702 for more information.
