PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

My name is Diesel and I am a favorite here at PAWS Shelter. The staff says that I am one of the best fur kids they have ever seen. I get along with everyone. I love when kids come to visit the shelter. I hope I can have a home with kids. I love to play ball and I ride very well in the car, in case you want to take me to the park to play. I am pretty young, just over a year, the shelter thinks. I was brought here as a stray. I’m lucky that I got to come here. Everyone is nice here, but I sure would like to have my very own family. Please come and meet me and see if you don’t think that I am PAWSitivly the Best! I will be waiting for you!!

All of our dogs are looking for a loving home where they can be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Missy is one of the most loving cats you will ever meet. She has a purring motor that goes full force when someone is giving her some attention. She came to the shelter with one blind eye. It doesn’t stop her from doing anything. Missy is a friendly cat who has a wonderful disposition and would make an ideal companion. Missy is up to date on her shots. She has been wormed and she tested negative for feline leukemia. Missy is litter box trained and spayed. She is a pretty girl with very distinct markings. Missy likes to play with toys and greet everybody. She would be thrilled to have you as her best forever friend.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

His ears were often the first thing to catch my tears. – Elizabeth Barrett Browning – Our Isaac certainly has the ears to catch tears and also a sweet face to lick them away. Three-year-old Isaac came to us from an Amish puppy mill and is looking for a home to call his own. Isaac is around 16 pounds and very sweet. At first, he may be a little timid, but he quickly warms up especially if bribed with a treat. Isaac likes people, children, other dogs and is uninterested in cats. Since Isaac was in a puppy mill, he would appreciate a patient owner to help him refine his house-training skills. Isaac is a Dandie Dinmont Terrier, a tough, friendly, Scottish breed, that was used for hunting badgers and otters.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Isaac was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. Isaac 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 Isaac 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

Hi! I’m Bella Louise. I am a beagle girl and I’m 5 years old and weigh about 25 pounds. I am here because the landlord said I had to go. The little girl kept opening the door and out I would go and I would run around. Neighbors complained and now I’m here. But I’m alright and I just need to find a new family. I’m good with kids, dogs and cats. I think that makes me a social butterfly! I so much want to be able to curl up on a little bed in my own home with my own family. I just need a little loving and I will be the best listener you ever had…you can tell me anything and your secrets are safe with me. Won’t you please take me home with you? I promise to be a really good girl. I just need somebody to love me again.
