Barely Used Pets

This sweet old man is Deuce, a 14-year-old Beagle Mix. He was an owner surrender due to no fault of his own. His owner became very ill and she had to move in with family out of state. Deuce has such a sweet and gentle soul. He is amazing with other dogs and he absolutely loves people. He is also available in our senior to senior program. To anyone over the age of 65 his adoption fee would be waived. This helps us find amazing homes for our older dogs who unfortunately get passed over so often. Deuce has been neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. Come out and meet this sweet boy.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

BoBo is a 2-year-old Jack Russell mix, an owner surrender. He is now coming out of his shell and we are seeing him progress into a wonderful dog. BoBo is very loving once he gets to know you. He is obsessed with toys and will carry them around for hours until someone gives in and plays with him. BoBo is spunky, funny and outgoing. He’s still learning how to walk on a leash, but will walk on it like a pro within no time. BoBo has been neutered, heartworm tested negative, microchipped and current on all vaccinations including Bivalent Flu. He’s current on flea and heart worm prevention as well. If you would like a little 10-pound ball of handsomeness, BoBo is your guy!
