Max: looking for a loving home

Come meet this sweet gentleman at our East Bay adoption event today, 12am-4pm, at the Rockridge Pet Food Express store in Oakland. Broadway/51st Street.

Max is a magnificent older cat who still has a lot of life in him and love to give. He was a staff favorite when first rescued in 2011. He was adopted to a wonderful family, but needed to be surrendered because one of the human siblings developed bad allergies.

At 11 years old, he’s in great health. He is current on all his shots. As you can see from his photo, he’s very handsome and he’s also affectionate and sweet. A real gentleman, he purrs when you brush him!

So, Max has yet another turn to find his perfect home. He’s gentle, gets along well with other cats, and is fine with dogs. He has many admirers, and all it takes is for someone special to step up to adopt him.

Berkeleyside’s weekly column, “Adopt a Pet”, hopes to help match pets with a home and loving owners in our community. We partner with the Milo Foundation to introduce, every Saturday, just one of the many pets that can be adopted. The Milo Foundation, a nonprofit, no-kill organization, provides an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and sanctuary until permanent homes can be found. Contact them directly to find out the more than 300 wonderful animals that are available for adoption.
