Domino loves people, and he’ll prove it if you visit him at PAWS Animal Shelter.


PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Domino, who loves to greet PAWS visitors. We call him our office manager and while he likes the job, he would really like to find a home to call his own. He’s 15 pounds of love and he enjoys a good back scratching and enjoys bird-watching. Domino is on a dietary food for his kidneys. There isn’t anything wrong with his kidneys, but if he eats other foods he’ll form crystals. He’s already neutered and is up to date on all his vaccines. Stop by and visit him. He’ll be happy to meet you!

PAWS is located at 1535 W. U.S. Route 36, just west of Urbana. Contact PAWS at 937-653-6233 or pawsurbana@hotmail.com for information about volunteer opportunities and donation needs.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

It’s Adopt A Senior Month at CCAWL, and these two sweet senior girls are active and as sweet as they look. Cheyenne and Daisy were owner surrenders for different circumstances and it was hard for both owners to give them up. Cheyenne is a 14-year-old Pomeranian mix. She loves playing fetch and being with humans. She is dog-friendly and house-broken. She will use potty pads if needed. Daisy is a 12-year-old Wired Hair Jack Russell who loves her banana time with a volunteer who comes on a regular basis. She enjoys being with humans, getting treats and lying on her bed. She is house-trained and gets along with other dogs. These seniors have been completely vetted and are looking for loving homes.
