Barely Used Pets (dog)

My name is Jimmy Max. They call me a “low rider.” I am short and long and they think I am a standard dachshund/rottweiler mix boy. I don’t take up much space because I only weigh about 25 pounds. I am about 2 years old. I am neutered and house trained. I am also crate-trained and leash-trained. I like kids and am good with other dogs. That is quite the resume and when I look at it, well, I would adopt me and take me home! I am a really good, good boy. Won’t you please come out and see me? We can take some walks. My legs might be short, but I can keep up with the best of them. My adoption fee is $150.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Evelyn has been at Paws since February of 2016. She came in with kittens and they all found homes. Now she needs a home of her own. She loves being petted, but doesn’t care to be picked up and carried around. She is 4 years old, and she would do well in most any home. She was tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV and is up-to-date on her shots. She has been spayed, so no more kittens!

PAWS is located at 1535 W. U.S. Route 36, just west of Urbana. Contact PAWS at 937-653-6233 or pawsurbana@hotmail.com for information about volunteer opportunities and donation needs. Hours are Tuesday thru Friday noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday noon to 4p.m. All PAWS cats and kittens may be found on Petfinder.com.
