Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dogs)

Meet Spike & Brailey, two senior Miniature Pinschers looking for forever homes. Their ages are 14 and 15. The owner died and the pets were brought to us. They were loved unconditionally. Spike is blind but walks around well. Brailey loves attention once she gets to know you. They are good with other dogs. These two sweeties were previously spayed/neutered. Brailey and Spike are microchipped, dewormed, current on vaccinations and preventions.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (cat)

Meet Whiskers, a 10-year-old girl who came to us due to her owner passing away. Whiskers loves to be loved and brushed. She is litter-boxes trained. Whiskers is fine with dogs as she was in a home with a small dog.
