PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Chewbacca. He is a 10-week-old male, Mancoon mix kitty. He is incredibly sweet and playful. He is one big bundle of soft, cute fur. He wants nothing more than to purr, cuddle and be loved by you. He would make a wonderful addition to your family. This boy is a cutie!

Please come out and meet Chewbacca at PAWS in Urbana.

PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

Ranger was abandoned in one of our outside kennels. He was extremely scared and nervous when the staff found him the following morning. He has been with us several months now and he has regained his confidence and now is a tail-wagging bundle of love. He seems to get along well with his kennel mates and all the staff and volunteers. He is not yet comfortable walking in a leash but when he finds his new loving home, I think he will become more trusting of the leash. Ranger is 1-2 years old and would make a great addition to a family. He is neutered. Please stop and meet him.

All of our dogs are looking for a loving home where they can be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (cat)

Bagheera is our featured cat for this week. This fella is 4 years old and weighs 12 pounds. He has a thick black fur coat that looks and feels like velvet. He is litter box trained and seems to get along fine with other cats. Bagheera doesn’t seem to mind dogs, he typically just stays away from them. He came to us as a stray, but has really stolen our hearts. Bagheera is so sweet and lovable, he enjoys having attention and loves to snuggle, his personality has really shown since he first came. If you are looking for a lover boy this is your guy! All of our available cats have been spayed/neutered, FeLV/FIV tested, vaccinated including Rabies, wormed and treated with flea prevention.

Hi! My name is Penny and I am a 5-year-old Golden/ Labrador Retriever. I weigh 46 pounds. I was an owner surrender and I came with Stripes and Copper when our person was too sick to take care of us. I am spayed, house trained, up to date on shots and heartworm negative. I love to take walks and I am great on a leash! I heard them say that I am a wonderful nice calm dog. If you are looking for a companion to welcome you home in the evening, lay by your feet and watch TV, I am your girl! Won’t you please take me home with you? I promise to be a really good girl. And just think of all of the shows we can snuggle up and watch together (I promise to let you control the remote)!
