For Adoption: “Opal”

For Adoption: “Opal”

UPDATE: Opal has been adopted and is now named Draco!


“Opal” is a six week old male Siamese mixed kitten that we have available for adoption.

He has received his first shots, has been dewormed, and has been found to be healthy by our doctors.

Opal was named by the staff after he was brought to our facility. He and his litter mate were strays who were attacked by a dog, and brought to our facility by a good Samaritan. Unfortunately, Opal’s litter mate was killed; however Opel was unharmed but obviously in need of a home.

If you are interested in adopting Opal please contact Craig Road Animal Hospital on 702 645 0331.
