Adoption Spotlight

 

Oak

After being rescued from hurricane Michael, Oak hopes he doesn’t have to spend much longer in a shelter. He’s a gentle, affectionate two year old with plenty of purrs and snuggles for the whole family. Oak loves people of all sizes, and he gets along with his kitty roommates perfectly. Oak can be adopted at a fee you name through Sunday, November 25th. (Brandywine Valley SPCA, 600 South Street, New Castle, DE 302-516-1000, www.bvspca.org)
