Whiska finds a home!
Many people know or have heard about an East Bay SPCA cat named Whiska. She was first brought to the shelter as a transfer with no history on why she ended up there. This is very common for many of the animals that we see. As a young, petite kitty, we didn't imagine her stay with us to be as long as it was. She originally came in 1 1/2 years ago! She spent time at both of our adoption facilities hoping and waiting for her time to come. She was featured as Pet of the Week in our TailMail (e-newsletter) as well as in various newspapers. Today she was adopted after being spotted on our website. We are so grateful to her adopter for giving her a home.
We had a situation where the police showed up at the East Bay SPCA in Tri-Valley responding to a call made to 911. Asking around we couldn't figure out how this call could have been made as we didn't have an emergency situation.
Looking into it further, it may be the result of Zoolander, our Shelter Cat, stepping on a speed dial button, which summoned the police.
Zoolander has an emergency to report! He's trying his best to get outta here! Zoolander has been with the East Bay SPCA for almost a full year, come March. He has spent time at both of our adoption facilities and is still waiting for his forever home. He is our Shelter Cat, which means he gets to spend his time in our office, greeting volunteers, staff and shelter dogs as they come through to say hello.
Zoolander is a wonderful kitty, come and meet him at our shelter in Dublin.
