Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Cheryl, a 7-year-old Coonhound who came to us from another shelter to find her forever home. She is a laid-back girl and she loves attention. She is quiet and walks well on a leash. She is great with other dogs and she does not seem to mind cats. She will be spayed and she is up to date on her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $175. Come out and meet her!

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Meet Linus, a young Boston Terrier mix who came to us from a different shelter. He is a very active boy who doesn’t know a stranger. The Boston Terrier breed does need regular exercise on a daily basis. Those big brown eyes can shine with kindness, curiosity or mischief. Linus will be a great addition to any family.
