PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

What an adorable kitten! Peewee is a sweet black and white girl with wonderful markings. She was found and brought to Paws Animal Shelter. You can see from her photo how cute she is. Peewee is looking for a good forever home. She bonds quickly and just wants to be your friend. If you are looking for a great companion, check out Peewee. Peewee has been wormed and she tested negative for feline leukemia. She is litter box trained. Peewee will have her shots and a spay certificate when adopted. Consider adopting precious Peewee.

PAWS Animal Shelter (dog)

My name is Prince and I am a 7-month-old Border Collie mix boy who came to PAWS Shelter with my sister, Princess. We haven’t been here very long, but so far the staff and volunteers have fallen in love with us. Our family was moving and we couldn’t go with them. We both came in very, very scared and a little “anti-social.” We heard the staff talking about us and they said that it “wasn’t our fault because we hadn’t been socialized around other doggies”. But we are both learnin’ the ropes on how to be “social”….. We just love everybody now.

But, back to me…..I am a very friendly, and playful, male fur kid who gets along well with all people and all the dogs here in the kennel. I would love to have a home with kids and a couple other canine friends. I’m a pretty smart doggie and I would love to learn all the tricks and commands you would like to teach me. I’m still a puppy so I will learn fast. Please come and visit me, I’d love to go for a walk with you.

Champaign County Animal Welfare League

“Dog lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” – Agnes Sligh – Unfortunately, Trixie’s owner’s life was cut short by cancer. This left our sweet Trixie without her home. She is a beautiful, wire-haired terrier mix. Trixie is just two-years old and house-trained. She loves children and gets along well with other dogs and cats. Trixie is a nice size dog weighing 33 pounds and would be a wonderful playmate for well-behaved children.

As with all Champaign County Animal Welfare League (CCAWL) pets, Trixie was completely vetted before being put up for adoption. She has been spayed, up to date on all vaccinations including rabies, worming, heart-worm testing and treated with heart-worm prevention and a three-month flea prevention. CCAWL adopted dogs are all micro-chipped and have their dental cleaning. If you are interested in visiting Trixie 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. Check our Facebook page for our most recent additions.

We want the holidays to be a happy time for you and your pet, not a time for an emergency visit to your veterinarian. The food and decorations that make the holidays so much fun for us can be dangerous for your pet. Chocolate, coffee, and tea all contain dangerous ingredients which cause nervous system or urinary system damage and heart muscle stimulation. Unsweetened baking chocolate and dark chocolate are the worst culprits, but all chocolate, fudge, and other candy should be placed out of your dog’s reach.

Bones from fish, meat, or poultry can also cause problems if swallowed. Even small bones can splinter causing tearing throughout the intestinal tract. So, no matter how big or how little they are, be sure to keep bones (other than those that are specially sterilized and treated) away from your dog. Kong toys, and hardened, sterilized bones would be better alternatives. Grapes and raisins contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. CCAWL will be closed until Nov. 28 to spend time with our families and we will reopen Monday, Nov. 28.

Barely Used Pets

Hi! My name is Bentley and I had to come here because my owner could no longer take care of me. I am an English Spring Spaniel boy and I’m 5 years old. I weigh 50 pounds. I am a very good boy and need a family of my own. Won’t you please take me home? I just want to curl up on the rug…and maybe run around the yard a few times! I don’t like other boy dogs, but I’m usually OK with the girls. I love to go out on the playground here, so how about you come over and we can go out for a while. They will even let you have a leash and we can take a walk together. I am neutered, and up to date on all of my vaccines…so I am ready to go home to my new forever family! Please come and see me. I really, really need a family to love me. Not just for the holidays…but forever and ever. I will be the best boy you ever had! Don’t get me wrong. This is a great place and they take really good care of me, but you know it’s not the same. I need you.

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 located at 844 Jackson Hill Road in Urbana, Ohio. You can give us a call at 937-869-8090. We are open Sunday 1-4pm, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 11am-6pm and Saturday 11am-2pm. We are CLOSED on Monday and Tuesday. We can always use donations and they are all of those basic supplies that we use so quickly. We need Clorox the most right now if you can drop off a couple of gallons for us! We need Lysol Lemon spray cleaner, paper towels, 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.

Thanks so much for considering me and helping Barely Used Pets help all of us little ones find our forever homes. OK…so what are you waiting for? Let’s go home!
