PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Hunter, a beautiful 3-year-old female dilute torti. She gets along with the other cats. She does have her moments, but they pass quickly. Hunter will probably do best in a home without small children. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL), a non-profit organization, introduces our bonded pets of the week, Half Pint and Bean. Half Pint is a 10-year-old Chihuahua weighing 4 pounds. She came with her brother Bean, a long-haired Chihuahua weighing 7 pounds. These two must find homes together as Bean is very attached to his sister. They both came to us from a different shelter where their owner could no longer care for them. Half Pint loves to be held by humans. She gets around fine even though she has cataracts and she is fine with other dogs. Bean is very outgoing and has a big personality in his small body. He doesn’t know how to act when he’s being held, but prefers to be petted. Bean will go wherever his sister is and he is always aware of her location. We are unsure if they are house-trained, but both would probably be fine with pottypads. Both have been spayed and neutered, heartworm tested negative, microchipped and current on all vaccinations as well as up to date on flea and heartworm prevention.
