PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Kiwi, a 2-year-old spayed female cat. She is a beautiful green-eyed calico who came to the shelter with a litter of kittens. They have all been adopted and now it’s Mama’s turn. Kiwi is as sweet and playful as can be and gets along with the other cats in our cattery.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Admiral is a 4-year-old German Shepherd who came to us as an unclaimed stray. He has been searching for his forever home since January. Admiral is obedient, beautiful and outgoing, however, he needs to be in a home with no other animals. He loves attention and is fine with children, but we would recommend no small ones because of his large size. Admiral loves the outdoors and sun bathing and knows the basic commands. He is neutered, heartworm tested negative, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. He is up to date on flea and heart worm prevention. If looking for a great companion, Admiral would be the one.
