PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Kenton is an 8-year-old male domestic short-haired cat. He was adopted from PAWS four years ago at the age of 4. He was returned because of his adopter’s medical concern. So now, Kenton finds himself 8 years old and looking for a new home. He’s a very big, handsome cat who loves watching out the window. Come spend some time with him today.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Meet Peppermint, a 4 or 5-year-old Havanese who came to us from a breeder. Peppermint is very timid so she will need a patient owner who will help with building a trusting bond as well as house-training. Because Peppermint has always been in a breeding program, she would not know to come when called. Her adopter is required to have a fenced yard for her safety and protection. Peppermint is fantastic with other dogs and we are happy to test her with cats if needed. She has been spayed, microchipped, dewormed, is current on heart worm and flea prevention as well as all vaccinations. Peppermint has also had a dental and polish. If interested in this beautiful girl, please submit an adoption application.

Please note: CCAWL is hosting “First Friday of the Month”wellness checkups for the public. There is a $15 office charge per animal and shots will be available at that time for $12 per shot. Please call or come in to set up an appointment
