Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Fudge is a 5-year-old Cocker Spaniel who came to us as a puppy mill rescue. Fudge has blossomed in the short time we have had her. Once Fudge sees you from a distance, her tail goes 100 mph. She’s still very shy, but in time she will learn to trust so she will need a fenced in yard, no exceptions. Fudge is great with other dogs and we are happy to cat-test her if needed. She is not house-trained but we are confident she would catch on with a steady and patient schedule. Fudge is spayed, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. She’s been dewormed and heartworm tested negative and is on flea and heart worm 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.
