Ernie's a purr machine


Meet Ernie, a five-month-old male Tabby with beautiful markings and an affectionate purr-sonality! He would be a fun and loving addition to any family. Visit the East County Animal Shelter and you will find that love comes in many colors.

For the artists in the group – visit Picasso! This unique young male kitty is all black except for the last one inch of his tail, which is pure white, and looks to be dipped in paint. Picasso sashays when he walks and proudly holds that "paintbrush" in the air. Visit Ernie, Picasso and their many friends at the East County Animal Shelter, 4595 Gleason Drive in Dublin, open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Call 803-7040.

On a personal note, I wish to thank the Danville Express, San Ramon Express and the Pleasanton Weekly for allowing me to provide Pet of the Week photos for the last nine-plus years. I retire from Pleasanton Animal Services this week and shining a light on adoptable pets has truly been one of my favorite experiences.
