Barely Used Pets (dog)

Meet Pusher, a 2-year-old Pit Mix found as a stray here in Champaign County. He is a big boy and a big lover! He is always smiling and happy to see you. We think he was in a home with kids because he loves them. He gets along with some dogs, but not all. If you have another dog we recommend that you bring it to the rescue so the dogs can meet. Pusher is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. His adoption fee is $175.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

Elodie is an 11-month-old Rot Mix who only weighs 30 pounds. She is a very sweet girl who loves her people. Elodie is walking very well on a leash. She seems to be fine with other dogs and is very playful with them. Elodie does need patience with house training but would catch on quickly. She is spayed, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, current on prevention and vaccinations.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League (2 guinea pigs)

Russet and Spud are two adult female guinea pigs, which are social companion animals that require daily interaction. They love talking and snuggling in their cubby holes. These guinea pigs do like being held and would make great companions.
