Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Salvatore is a 5-month-old, German Shepherd/Chow mix. He came to us as an owner surrender, through no fault of his own. An outgoing, fun dog anxious to find his forever home, he is dog-friendly, but is not fond of the kitties. Salvatore will need a patient owner for housebreaking and obedience training, but he is very smart and food motivated so he should easily catch on to these new challenges. Salvatore is neutered and will be microchipped and brought up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations before his adoption. Salvatore is dewormed and he is current on flea and heartworm prevention.

CCAWL members have access to our campus, indoor/outdoor dog park, grooming facility and more! Dog/cat adoption applications are at www.champaigncoanimalwelfareleague.com or pick one up at our facility during business hours. Adoption fee for puppies/dogs is $165. Lower rates apply for Senior Dogs. Fees cover spay/neuter, Da2PPL, Bivalent Flu, Bordetella, rabies, worming, heartworm test, flea and heartworm prevention and microchip. Pets are groomed and receive dental cleaning and polish with any necessary extractions. Only cash, credit or debit accepted.

For info, call 937-834-5236 or stop out and take a tour of our campus, located at 3858 state Route 56, Mechanicsburg, OH 43044.
