Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Kaito, a 2-year-old Husky Mix found as a stray along with a cute little pup who has found her forever home. Now it is Kaito’s turn! He is a talker and he loves attention. He is a very sweet boy and he gets along with some other dogs. Kaito would do best in a home with no small children. He knows some basic commands and he loves to go for walks and play. He has been neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $150.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Cheyenne is a 14-year-old Pomeranian mix who weighs 19 pounds. She was an owner surrender due to her owner’s health. Cheyenne is sweet once she knows you, but she can be a barker at times. She is friendly but we wouldn’t recommend any small children around her. Cheyenne is house and pee pad trained and goes outside to potty. She is dog-friendly, and we can easily cat-test her if desired. Cheyenne is looking for a forever home where she can live out the rest of her days. She’s been spayed, microchipped, has had dental/extractions, is dewormed, heartworm tested negative and is on heartworm prevention and current on all vaccinations. If looking for a companion who will follow you around the house to keep you company, look no further!
