Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Indie, a 4-year-old Lab Mix who came to us from another shelter. She is one of the happiest dogs you will meet. She does not know a stranger. Indie loves to play and she gets along great with other dogs. She has been spayed and she is up to date on her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $150.

Visitors and potential adopters are welcome during regular hours. Please visit our website: http://www.barelyusedpets.com. Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words). Barely Used Pets is located at 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Rey is a very beautifully marked 1-year-old spayed female tiger cat. She is friendly with people, not so much with the other cats. She’s a bit jealous of them and wants all of your attention on her. We feel that Rey would be happiest in a home where she is the only cat. Come visit her at Paws.
