PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Chaz is a 2-year-old female cat who came to the shelter as a newborn and lived in a foster home until she was old enough to be on the adoption floor. Chaz has grown into a fun-loving super sweet cat who loves to play and be petted and brushed. She gets along well with other cats and would make a nice addition to just about any home. Chaz is up to date on vaccinations. Come visit her in the Cattery Room at Paws Animal Shelter.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Meet “This,” a 6-month-old Lab mix who weighs 15 pounds. She came to us from a dog pound where she was an unclaimed stray. This is very sweet and enjoys everyone’s company. She is fine with other dogs and we are happy to cat-test her if needed. This may need a little patience with house-breaking. Her New Year’s wish is to find a forever home where she will be loved unconditionally. She’s been spayed, heartworm tested negative, microchipped, dewormed and is current on prevention and vaccinations. If interested in this beautiful little girl, please submit an application, which may be found on our webpage or at our facility.
