Barely Used Pets (dog)

My name is Kia, a 2-year-old German Shepard/Husky Mix who came to Barely Used Pets from a shelter in Carter County. I really love being with people. I am very gentle and just have so much love to give. I get along great with other dogs. I am up to date on my vaccinations and I am scheduled to be spayed. My adoption fee is $150.

Visitors and potential adopters are welcome during regular hours. Please visit our website: http://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. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Tootsie, a 3-year-old domestic short-haired cat who came to the shelter a couple of years ago when her previous owner passed away. It took her a long time to warm up to people. Tootsie needs a home where she can be herself and not be fussed over too much. She enjoys being petted when she’s ready. We would recommend a home without small children, however, she does well with other cats. She has been spayed and is up to date on vaccinations.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Meet Crowley, a one-year-old German Shepherd. She’s obedient and knows all basic commands. She’s playful and gets along great with other dogs her size. She will need a little refresher course with housebreaking, but does well if taken out regularly. She is energetic and needs a lot of exercise, physically and mentally. She would not be good in a home with cats or small animals as her prey drive and play drive are too much. She does not do well with livestock. She has been spayed, microchipped, dewormed and is up to-date on vaccinations: Da2PPL, Bordetella, Bivalent Flu and Rabies. Crowley is on flea and heartworm prevention. If you are an active person and would like a “running buddy” this girl is perfect.
