Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Sage is a 7-year-old Mini Aussie who came to us as an owner surrender due to no fault of hers. She is shy but warms up very nicely. Sage is well behaved and such a sweetheart and would do best in a home with older or dog-savvy children. She walks very well on a leash and knows her basic commands. Sage is dog-friendly, but we are unsure of cats and she can be cat-tested if needed. She is completely house-trained, as well as spayed, microchipped and current on all of her vaccinations. Sage received a dental and polish and heartworm-tested negative. She’s current on all preventive medications.

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.
