Barely Used Pets (dog)

Am a Rilla is a one-year-old lab mix found tied to a guard rail. She has been spayed and has had all her vaccinations, including the dog flu vaccine. She plays well with other dogs her size, but can be too exuberant for smaller dogs. She appears to be house-trained and is a very smart dog. Her adoption fee is $150, which includes her 2019 dog tags.

We are now selling the 2019 Champaign County Dog Tags.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) would like to introduce KIA, an 8-month-old Retriever/Sharpei mix. Kia is very shy with new people, especially with men, but warms up once you gain her trust. She is loving, sweet, kind, smart and would be very loyal. Kia is great with other dogs no matter the size and would do great in a home with a fenced-in yard. She seems to be housebroken, but if not it won’t take her long to comprehend. Kia is spayed, microchipped, dewormed and current on vaccinations: Da2PPL, Bordetella, Bivalent Flu and Rabies. She is current on flea and heartworm prevention as well.

Potential adopters must have an approved application, which can be found on our webpage https://www.champaigncoanimalwelfareleague.com/ccawl-residents or pick one up at our facility during business hours. For all of our other canine listings, you may check out adoptapet.com and petfinder.com.
