PAWS Animal Shelter

Are you looking for a wonderful kitten to greet you when you come home each day? Alexandra or little Alex would be an ideal companion and devoted pet! When she was just a tiny kitten she was found and brought to Paws Animal Shelter. She needed a lot of care and special feeding. Now Alex is old enough to be adopted. She is a gentle and quiet little girl who is looking for a good home. She has the most beautiful eyes and tiger striped fur. I love the cute orange stripe on her neck. Alex loves to play with the other kittens or toys. She is a sweet girl who loves attention. Toss a toy and she is ready to play. Alex has been wormed and she tested negative for feline leukemia. She is litter box trained. Alex will have her shots and a spay certificate when adopted. Consider adopting adorable Alex!

Barely Used Pets

Hi. I’m Cammy and I am a Husky/Beagle mix girl and I’m only a year old. I weigh about 38 pounds and I am OK with cats. I have big blue eyes and I am looking for my new forever person or family. I am already spayed and I’m micro-chipped. I am not at all sure what happened…but WOW…dogs everywhere! I’ve got playmates all over the place. I have toys and soft blankets and most of all I get to talk to all of the others here about where we all came from. But so many of us just don’t know what happened…we were just suddenly here instead of in our homes. Where are our people? Did I do something wrong? I’m just a young girl and I know that I’m a good girl. I was really good with cats, and I LOVE to go on walks…like LOTS of walks! So even though I’m not sure what happened, that’s alright. Because I know, I know, I know that there’s somebody out here who wants a young blue-eyed girl like me. If you come out to see me, they will let us go on a walk together. Then you can tell me all about yourself. Although I am still puppy in many ways, I am a good listener and you can tell me anything. Please come and take me home and I promise to be loyal and I will love you lots and lots!

Please note that our garage sale originally scheduled for August 20th has been delayed…we’ll be having a HUGE one on October 8th! Please come out and see us at the PetSmart Adoption Weekend in Springfield on Bechtel Road. We will be there on Saturday, September 17th!

Thanks so much for considering me and helping Barely Used Pets help me and my friends find our forever homes!

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) is pleased to present Emmy as our Pet of the Week. Emmy is a playful and loving 4-year-old Boxer girl looking for her forever home, however, she needs to be the only dog in a family. Emmy can walk on a leash and play in the dog park with other dogs, but she demands all of the attention in her home. If she doesn’t get all of the attention, she can become a bully toward her companion dog. She loves people and children and is indifferent to cats. Emmy is a bigger girl weighing 66 pounds and is totally house-broken.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Emmy was completely vetted before 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 Emmy 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
