PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

My name is Bert. I came to PAWS Animal Shelter with my best bud, Ernie, a few months ago. We both were running out of time at another shelter and the nice folks here at PAWS saved us. I’m a Beagle/Bassett mix little guy. I’m 7+ years old so I am a lot more calm and collected than some of these younger fur kids. I lay around most of the time…BUT….I do like to have you humans play ball with me, or take me for walks or even some Frizbee, maybe…..Well, on second thought..that might be a little too much exercise for my little, fat body. They feed me very well here and I even get treats, too, which I take very gently. I get along with all the other doggies here in the Shelter and I also don’t really mind the kitties. I am up to date on all my vaccines and I am heart worm negative . I would sure love to have a home of my own, with a family who loves me and won’t ever leave me in a shelter again. Could that be your family? Please come and see if maybe I can be a fit for your household.

There are many wonderful cats, adorable kittens and fun-loving dogs at the shelter waiting for good homes. Paws Animal Shelter needs donations of Purina Kitten Chow, Purina Complete Cat Chow, Purina Dog Chow and Purina Puppy Chow. We also could use donations of bleach, laundry detergent, 39 gallon trash bags and clumping cat litter. We are a nonprofit organization that operates only by donations. We do not receive any city, county or state funding. We depend on public donations and our adoption fees to run the shelter. Please consider making a donation to help fund our shelter. This is puppy and kitten season. We often get in puppies or kittens with no mother. Consider fostering puppies or kittens. Sign up on our foster list. We are always looking for volunteers to come to the shelter and help out. You could play with the cats or dogs to help socialize them.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras. We at Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) have somebody here anxious to make your life whole. Please meet Abbott, a 9-month old, 50-pound Swiss Mountain Dog mix looking for his forever home. He and his brother, Costello, were recently rescued from a dog shelter. Costello was just adopted and Abbott is wondering about his forever home. He is a playful, happy boy who loves people and other dogs. He is good with children and is indifferent to cats. Although Abbott has spent some time in shelters, we feel he is house-trained or, at least, very close.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Abbott was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. He has been neutered, up to date on all vaccinations including rabies, worming, heart-worm testing and treated with flea and heart-worm prevention. CCAWL adopted dogs are all micro-chipped and have their 2016 dog license and dental cleaning. If you are interested in visiting Abbott or any other of the adoptable pets at CCAWL, please call us at 937-834-5236. We are located at 3858 State Route 56, Mechanicsburg, OH, 43044. Dog and Cat adoption applications can be found online at www.champaigncoanimalwelfareleague.com. You may fax an adoption application to 937-834-5171. A complete listing of our available pets may be found at www.petfinder.com and www.adoptapet.com.

CCAWL is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of the pets of Champaign County. We always appreciate your donations of bleach, paper towels, collars, leashes, Clorox wipes and laundry detergent.

If you are looking to support CCAWL by volunteering, we would love to meet you. Applications may be picked up at our location. We also require proof of a current tetanus shot to accompany the completed application.

Barely Used Pets

My name is Lucy Diamond and I am still young at just under 1-1/2 years old. I am a Border Collie/Aussie Mix girl and I weigh 40 pounds. I love to play with the other dogs, but I, uh, killed some chickens. So I am a chicken killer and they are going to put me up on the post office wall with the most wanted pretty soon for that one! But I am a good girl…I really am. I love children and play so well with the other dogs and I’m OK with cats! I need a new forever family, so please open your heart and your home for me. I promise to be a good girl as long as there are no chickens around.

Please visit our website: www.barelyusedpets.com. Also, like us on Facebook at Barely Used Pets Rescue (put spaces between the words). Barely Used Pets is at our new location of 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana, Ohio. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090. We are open Sunday 1-4pm, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-6pm, Fridays 10am – 5pm and Saturdays 11-2. We can always use donations and they are all of those basic supplies that we use so quickly. We need Lysol Lemon spray cleaner, paper towels, Clorox, Dawn dish soap (original), and laundry soap. We can also use the elevated pet beds by Kuranda (go to kuranda.com). Any donations are always appreciated. Please take a look at our website for other ideas for donations. Please note that our garage sale originally scheduled for August 20th has been delayed…we’ll be having a HUGE one on October 8th! Please come out and see us at the PetSmart Adoption Weekend in Springfield on Bechtel Road. We will be there on Saturday, September 17th! We will also be a Tractor Supply here in Urbana on that same Saturday 11am-3pm. So come out and see us…we’ll be in both places this Saturday!

Thanks so much for considering me and helping Barely Used Pets help me and my friends find our forever homes.
