PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Hello. My name is Elliott and I’m a doggie waiting for a home here at Paws Shelter in Urbana. I am just a short little puppy, only 8 months old.

I play very well with all my buddies here at the shelter. I’ve not been around the felines much, but I think I’d like them too. I am up to date on all my vaccines and I will be neutered soon.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” – Josh Billings, humorist and lecturer. Such is our Sophie at Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL). She is a happy Shepherd/Red Heeler mix that was brought to us as a stray. Sophie is one year old and weighs 34 1/2 pounds. She loves people and children and enjoys other dogs as long as they respect her space. She appears to be indifferent to cats. Sophie is obedient and playful and would make a great 4-H project or agility dog as well as a loving companion. She loves to run and needs a secure, fenced yard in which to play.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Sophie was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. She has been spayed, up to date on all vaccinations including rabies, worming, heart-worm testing and treated with flea and heart-worm prevention. CCAWL adopted dogs are all micro-chipped and have their 2016 dog license and dental cleaning. If you are interested in visiting Sophie 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 You may fax an adoption application to 937-834-5171. A complete listing of our available pets may be found at and

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.

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.

Barely Used Pets

Hi! I am a Jack Russell Terrier/Dachshund mix boy and I weigh 25 pounds. I’m 2 years old. My name is Tank and it’s been kind of hard for me. My people kept me in a crate the whole time they had me, all two years, and they didn’t work with me at all. So, I was lonely and didn’t know what to do or what I should do because nobody cared. Well, finally my angel girl showed up (her name is Cheryl!) and she took me away from there and brought me here…she saved me! She even got everything done for me at the vet (even that getting fixed thing)…bet you wish you had a Cheryl, too! She wants Barely Used Pets to help me find a loving family or even a single person who will work with me and let me know it’s OK and they won’t neglect me. I just need lots and lots of loving and lots and lots of understanding. I need to be taught the rules of life…but I promise you this…if you are willing to teach me, I will try my best to learn how to be the best boy you ever, ever had! Won’t you please give me a chance to have a real home where I am loved?

Please visit our website: Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words). Barely Used Pets is at our new location of 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana, Ohio.

Please note that our garage sale originally scheduled for August 20th has been delayed…we’ll be having a huge one on October 8th!

We will also be a Tractor Supply here in Urbana on that same Saturday 11am-3pm. So come out and see us…we’ll be in both places this Saturday!
