Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Chip and I am just a little guy. I am a chihuahua guy, and I am 4 years old weighing just 8 pounds. I was transferred from another shelter and I need my own family, my own little bed, my own sofa to jump up on and maybe even my own remote control! I will be your couch buddy like nobody’s business! I will help you change the channels, fluff the pillows so we can be real couch potatoes…and you can tell me all of your problems. I won’t tell anybody and I believe that I will be the best therapy you ever, ever had. I can be all of that for you and more…if you will just give me a chance to be loved and safe and warm with you. I know we will be good for each other and I will love you back so much you won’t be able to measure it all. You see, once we’ve been in shelters, we really, really, really appreciate our new families. Having a family to love me is all I want in the whole wide world. Please take me home with you.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Treat yourself to a wonderful pet this Halloween! Kettle’s black and orange colors are purr-fect for Halloween. She is definitely a sweetheart. Give her a chance and she will easily win your heart. Kettle is an attractive, tortoiseshell colored cat with adorable markings. She was rescued after being abandoned. Kettle was nervous when she first came to the shelter. Now she has blossomed into the most loving and affectionate kitty ever! All she needed was attention and a little bit of time to come out of her shell. Kettle likes to be held and will give you kisses. She would like to come home with you and be your forever friend. Kettle likes to sit on your lap or just hang out with you. She has a great purr and enjoys playing with toys. She is up to date on her shots and spayed. She has been wormed and she tested negative for feline leukemia. She is litter box trained. Kettle is ready for her forever family.

“No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich.” – Louis Sabin – It will be a rich person, indeed, who gets to adopt our rough-coated Griffin. She is a 3-year old Brussells Griffon that we rescued from an Amish puppy mill. Griffin is very playful and gets along well with other dogs as well as children. When tested with our cats, Griffin was totally uninterested in them. She is a sturdy girl weighing in at 14.5 pounds. As all puppy mill dogs, Griffin is not house-trained so she would require a patient adopter. Brussells Griffons were originally bred to hunt and kill rats and they make wonderful companions.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Griffin was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. Griffin has been spayed, up to date on all vaccinations including rabies, worming, heart-worm testing and treated with heart-worm prevention and a three-month flea prevention. CCAWL adopted dogs are all micro-chipped and have their 2016 dog license and dental cleaning. If you are interested in visiting Griffin or any other of the adoptable pets at CCAWL, please call us at 937-834-5236. We are located at 3858 State Route 56, Mechanicsburg, OH, 43044. Dog and Cat adoption applications can be found online at www.champaigncoanimalwelfareleague.com. You may fax an adoption application to 937-834-5171. A complete listing of our available pets may be found at www.petfinder.com and www.adoptapet.com.

CCAWL is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of the pets of Champaign County. We always appreciate your donations of bleach, paper towels, collars, leashes, Clorox wipes and laundry detergent. We are currently in need of Q-tips, Laundry Detergent and Dryer Sheets.

If you are looking to support CCAWL by volunteering, we would love to meet you. Applications may be picked up at our location. We also require proof of a current tetanus shot to accompany the completed application.
