Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dogs)

Meet Richard and Brenda, our special needs duo. These 5-year-old cattle dog mixes are deaf but happy. Brenda loves to be outside on her back snoozing under the sun. She doesn’t seem to like other dogs, except for Richard. Brenda gives kisses and loves belly rubs. Richard is a shy boy at first, but eventually warms up. He likes to follow you around the yard and loves being brushed. These two sweeties need forever homes where they will be loved unconditionally. Both have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and are current on vaccinations and preventions.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (cat)

Meet Ziggy, a 2-year-old Domestic Short Hair cat who weighs 13 pounds! Ziggy is a very loving kitty who loves to rub against your legs and lets you pick him up. His owner had to go into a facility where she can no longer care for him due to her health. Ziggy is litter-box trained. He is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, FeLV/FIV NEGATIVE and current on vaccinations and prevention.
