Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dogs)

These two Chihuahuas came together from another shelter: Bean & Half Pint were owner surrenders but through no fault of their own. They are loving, spunky and, most of all, little clowns. Bean is an 8-year-old, long-hair, male Chihuahua who weighs 7 pounds. Half Pint is a 10-year-old female Chihuahua who weighs 3 pounds. Bean is very attached to his sister so they are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Half Pint has cataracts but can still see somewhat. They both do very well with other dogs their size. All CCAWL residents are spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. They also have had a dental and polish to their teeth. Our residents have been heartworm tested negative and on prevention for flea, tick and heartworm.

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.
