PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Peaches is a 6-year-old domestic shorthaired cat who has been at the shelter about 3 1/2 years. During that time she was adopted once but brought back because she didn’t get along with their dog. Peaches does pretty well with most cats. She is a bit sassy, so we recommend a home without small children. Peaches has been spayed and is up to date on vaccinations.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) introduces “dog of the week” Buttercup, a 5-year-old Yorkie. Buttercup is a puppy-mill rescue and is very shy with people. She will need a patient, loving owner who will show her just how happy a dog’s life can be. She is good with other dogs but will need someone who has the time and patience to house-train her. Buttercup is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations: Da2PPL, Bordetella, Bivalent Flu and Rabies. She’s been dewormed and heartworm-tested negative, and she’s current on flea and heartworm prevention.

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.

Announcement: CCAWL will have a low-cost vaccination clinic March 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Open to county and non-county residents. The charge is $12 per shot per cat or dog. We are also providing you with a great deal on a year’s worth of heart worm prevention! If you want your pet to get the 3-year Rabies, you must bring proof of past Rabies vaccination records from your vet. No checks. Please be sure all dogs are on leashes and all cats are secured in a carrier.
