Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Max, a 3-year-old Beagle/Heeler Mix who came to us as an owner-surrender due to no fault of his own. He was a loved boy, and it was hard for his family to surrender him. He is such a sweetheart. He loves people! He is also great with other dogs. He loves to play and he walks great on a leash. Max has been neutered and he is up to date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $150.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Pip is a 2 1/2-year-old domestic shorthaired cat. She came to the shelter when she was just a 7-week-old kitten and she is still waiting to find the perfect home.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dogs)

Meet Pearl and Lucy, one-year-old Beagle mixes surrendered to The Champaign County Animal Welfare League through no fault of theirs. Pearl and Lucy must stay together as they are bonded to one another. They are sweet girls just looking for some cuddles and a place to call their own. Pearl and Lucy are good with other dogs. We don’t know how they are with cats, but we can easily test them if needed. These two girls are semi house-broken and will need just a little help and patience to finish this training. If looking to add two beautiful girls to your family, look no further!
