Barely Used Pets

This beautiful girl is Daisy, a 5-year-old Heeler Mix who came to us from a shelter in Kentucky. Daisy has such a gentle, loving soul. She is just one amazing dog. Shortly after Daisy came to us, we found out that she was heartworm positive. We are treating her and are confident that she will be cured. We are so blessed to have had a 100% success rate in treating all of our heartworm-positive dogs. We cannot wait to find Daisy her forever home where she will be given love. She gets along great with other dogs and she loves everyone she meets. Daisy will be spayed after her treatment is complete. She is up to date on her vaccinations. If interested in adopting Daisy, please contact the rescue.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Nash is a 2-year-old Great Pyrenees who came to us as an owner surrender through no fault of his own. He is a sweet, gentle and fun boy. Nash loves to be outside, but also loves to be a couch potato and a good cuddling buddy. He walks well on a leash. Nash does need to be worked with on house training, but would catch on quickly. He knows basic commands. Nash is dog-friendly, but would still require a meet and greet. He is neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. Nash has been dewormed and heartworm-tested negative. He’s current on heartworm preventative.
