Pets of the Week


With her long hair and mitten paws, gentle Ruby arrived at PAWS Animal Shelter with son Bandit. She’s ready now to move into a permanent home.


Cosmos is an adaptable sort, likes people and all sizes of dogs, is indifferent to cats, and he loves to both romp and cuddle. Check him out at the Champaign County Animal Welfare League.


“Sit, Uboo. Sit.” Apparently 2-year-old, 45-pound Uboo follows that command that watchers of retro-TV channels may hear occasionally. Uboo has adjusted to a better life at Barely Used Pets, but could use an even better one with his own family. Stop by the shelter and check him out.


PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

She has been spayed and is up to date on her shots and she tested negative for Feline Leukemia. She is litter box trained. Stop in and meet this lovely little lady.

PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Dear Santa,

Hi, it’s me, Levi, and I’ve been a very, very good boy this year even though I’ve spent almost 2 years in 2 local shelters. That’s lots of time without a family to love me.

I know you see me when I’m sleeping and you know when I’m awake, so you know that I’m a good boy who gets along with my kennel mates, I ride well in the car, I like kids and I know some commands. When will that be enough for someone to love me?

The thing is, Santa, what really makes me cry is watching all my buddies here at PAWS Shelter leaving me, their new pet parents loving on them and leading them out of the kennel with their new leashes and collars, toys and, this is the worst, their kids.

Santa, just in the last 10 days I’ve had to say goodbye to my buddy and good friends , blaze, Bert and Ernie, Bentley, Stella, cinnamon, prince, princess and so many others before that. I don’t want you to think I’m selfish, …. I’m really happy for them but I’m sad for me.

So please Santa, would you ask the people here to share me so that maybe somebody will say, “Hey, that’s him……. that’s the dog i want!”

Thank you Santa,

I love you,

Levi

Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Uboo and a Good Samaritan brought me here so that I can find a new forever home. They took me in from a not too good situation. I am a Lab/Rottweiler mix boy and I’m 2 years old. I weigh 45 pounds. They say I am quite the gentleman. I am good with kids, good with other dogs and they say I am good with cats. I am neutered, have had my shots, and I am not a barky type guy. I am still a little timid here but that is too be expected with all the changes I’ve been through in such a short time. I really love to be with people. Oh Yeah…Who remembers this quote? “Sit, Ubu, Sit!” It was always at the end of the show “Family Ties”. I even kind of look like that guy. Well, if you say it to me…I will.

Please come out and see me. You won’t be disappointed. Then maybe you can find a little spot on the floor at your place for me…I can even bring my own blanket. I just need a family of my own. Please, please open your heart for me. I will love you so much you won’t be able to measure it!

Please visit our website: www.barelyusedpets.com. Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words).

Thank you all for adopting our little ones and for all of the donations and volunteer work you have done throughout the year 🙂

Uboo says: Thanks so much for considering me and helping Barely Used Pets help all of us little ones find our forever homes. OK…so what are you waiting for? Let’s go home!
