Barely Used Pets

Hi. We’re Cagney and Lacey and, yep, we’re sisters! We were brought to Barely Used Pets a month ago from Jackson County as an owner surrender and we’ve been waiting for our forever home ever since. We’re Dachshund mixes and we’re a little shy, but that’s because we’ve ever only had each other. (We’re bonded ya see) We are well behaved and are trained. We’re really hoping to find a special family that could take both of us together! Can you guys help us find that special home?

Please visit our website: www.barelyusedpets.com. Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words). Barely Used Pets is located at 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana, Ohio. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090. We will be open Saturday, 12/30, but closed New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

We can always use donations and they are all of those basic supplies that we use so quickly. We are in real need of lots and lots of paper towels! If you can bring us some we would surely appreciate it. The girls say…”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! We’ve got some Holiday celebrating to do!”
