PAWS Animal Shelter

Hi, my name is Flamingo. Yes, I know my name is unusual for a kitten. I came to Paws Animal Shelter with my brother, Hot Dog, and my sister, Flower. We didn’t have our mother with us so we needed to be bottle-fed by a kind foster caregiver. The foster’s son named us. We are back at Paws and old enough to be adopted. My brother, Hot Dog, already got adopted. Flower and I are waiting for our perfect homes. I know that someone will come to come to Paws Animal Shelter and fall in love with me. I am a well mannered little boy kitten who wants a forever home. I love to play and to be held. My soft purr will definitely win you over. I like to explore and chase my toys around. I am current on my shots and will have a neuter certificate when adopted. You can see from my picture that I am a handsome fellow. I am litter box trained and the purr-fect gentleman. Once you meet me I am certain we will become instant pals.

The Shelter hours are Tuesday-Friday 12-5 p.m., Saturday 12-4 p.m., Sunday and Monday-closed.

We also could use donations of bleach, laundry detergent, 39 gallon trash bags and clumping cat litter. We are a nonprofit organization that operates only by donations. We do not receive any city, county or state funding. We depend on public donations and our adoption fees to run the shelter. Please consider making a donation to help fund our shelter. This is puppy and kitten season. We often get in puppies or kittens with no mother. Consider fostering puppies or kittens. Sign up on our foster list. We are always looking for volunteers to come to the shelter and help out. You could play with the cats or dogs to help socialize them.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

Champaign County Animal Welfare League is pleased to present Snyder, a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix. Snyder was released to us after having been found tied to a tree in Snyder Park. Even after being mistreated, Snyder is a happy and loving girl who loves people and gets along with other dogs. She appears to be indifferent to our shelter cats and is housebroken. Snyder weighs around 10-and-a-half pounds and is only 4 years old. She is an enthusiastic greeter and very happy to meet people of all ages.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Snyder was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. Included in the $130 adoption donation is spaying/neutering, 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 Snyder 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.
