Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Lou is a 3-year-old German Shepherd who came to us as an owner surrender. Lou is a very sweet boy and knows his basic commands. He is very ball-driven and would like for someone to play ball with him all day long. Adopting Lou would require a meet and greet if there are other dogs in the home. We think he would do great in a home with older children who have been taught how to respect a dog’s personal space. He is neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. Lou has been dewormed and heartworm-tested negative and is 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.
