Story
I got Juji on craigslist when he was 4 months old. He is 4 years old as of April 23rd, 2024. I was told he is Lapponian Herder, but he looks like a mix to me. He is loving, goofy, playful, loyal, and a true best friend. He needs a home where he can chill out and also play around. He is a big guy, but he loves a morning cuddle. He's the sweetest dog. He is not fixed so he would not be good around other male dogs. He is alright with children, but this is case-to-case. He's lived with cats and is fine with them. He's quite a beautiful dog. He is starting to have urinary issues and I have been trying to treat them with natural supplements that have been working. However, it is getting expensive for me and it hurts me, but I know what's best for him.

Story
I am a long-term dog resident here at the Champaign County Humane Society! What does that mean? It means I have been available for adoption for over 90 days and am more than ready to find my forever home! In fact, the shelter is waiving my adoption fee for any approved applicant. Please stop by the shelter during open hours to visit with me! Meet Cody, the 2-year-old, neutered male Pitbull Terrier mix who is looking for a forever home at CCHS! This pooch is like a live wire, bursting with energy and ready for action! He's a big fan of playing with toys and making new human friends (especially the ones who carry treats). Cody likes to keep his prized possessions safe and sound, so he prefers to be the only dog in the house. But don't worry, he's got enough love to go around! Cody is a Cancer sun, a Gryffindor (Quidditch team, Seeker), and in D&D he plays a Rogue Dwarf. While a terrific athlete, Cody also identifies as a nerd. This pup isn't afraid to show his full enthusiasm for anything and everything! He has plenty of energy to try it all and love every second. Cody would thrive in an active household with plenty of outdoor time and room to play. Whether you need a jogging buddy or a BFF always wagging his tail, Cody is the pup for you! Come meet him at CCHS and let the fun begin! Cody is a STAFF FAVORITE pet! Here's what adoption staff member, Meredith has to say about him: Cody is our shelter's longest resident, having arrived in July 2023. Cody is the kind of fearless, happy dog that doesn't seem to mind being in a shelter. He is excited every day when his friends come to greet him. Cody doesn't know how to feel anything but joyful! He loves to play and enjoys games by himself and with friends. As long as he has food to eat, toys to play with, and people to take him for walks, give him treats, and tell him what a handsome lad he is, Cody feels like a king. Imagine how happy he would be if he had a home of his own! If Cody had people and a place all his own, he'd be over the moon! Come meet our happy boy, who will be especially happy to see you!

It means I have been available for adoption for over 90 days and am more than ready to find my forever home! In fact, the shelter is waiving my adoption fee for any approved applicant. Please stop by the shelter during open hours to visit with me! Introducing the stunning Raven, a little lady who had a bumpy start in life but now she's looking for a new home sweet home! Her first year was spent locked up in a kennel, but luckily, she found a home that promised her a better life. With her high energy levels, Raven's a real firecracker, but her previous owner wasn't quite ready for her rambunctious antics. Raven needs a patient family that can teach her some manners and help her burn off all that energy! She's not too keen on other pups, so she's looking for a home where she can be the star of the show. This girl loves to soak up all your love and cuddles. So, if you're looking for a furry friend to light up your life, please swing by the shelter to meet Raven! Raven is a STAFF FAVORITE pet! Here's what animal care staff member, Roe, has to say about her: Raven is one of my best buds! This is her second time with us through no fault of her own, and she made the move to the new building with us last year so we've all gotten the opportunity to get to know her very well. She's enthusiastic about doing anything for treats, and very smart about getting them. She loves neck rubs and will happily sit next to you and people watch while you pet her. Raven is very playful and silly, loves to play fetch outside and wiggle around in the grass on her back. Snow is also one of her favorite things-we have a hard time convincing her to come back inside, she'd rather just jump around and eat the snow! She'd love to be your only pet and get ALL your love, so if you have room in your life for a little princess, come and meet Raven!!

Story
Nala is a 1-year-old female pit mix available for adoption at CCHS! Nala was relinquished to us in unfortunate circumstances and was a momma. Nala did well with older children who lived in her previous home, but she must be the only pet in the home because she's more of a "people dog." Nala would be a great addition to an active family, as she is constantly moving herself. She also enjoys snuggling with her people, and has a favorite stuffed monkey toy. Nala would also do well with a patient home who can work with her to keep her enriched and stimulated. Nala is also on a prescription diet for urinary care. Come meet this fantastic girl at CCHS!

Bessie was relinquished to CCHS in December of 2023. Sadly, during her owner's separation she had been left behind in a bathroom without food or water. Upon arrival, Bessie was severely underweight, at less than 25 lbs, and had uncomfortable pressure sores in multiple areas along her body. With the care and support of our staff and her foster provider, Bessie made a remarkable recovery and has become a cherished member of our CCHS family. During her visits for check-ups, Bessie enjoys spending time with our medical team in the lab and greets everyone who stops by to say hello to her enthusiastically. Bessie's favorite toy is a stuffed armadillo that she proudly shows off to her friends. She is friendly to everyone she meets and exemplifies the resilience of shelter dogs. Bessie loves lounging in her cozy bed, solving food puzzles, and, of course, receiving affection and praise from her human companions. After reaching a healthy weight and undergoing essential dental care, Bessie is now ready for adoption. We hope to find a loving home for this special dog where she can receive the unconditional love she deserves. If you are interested in adopting Bessie, please fill out an online application at the link below. Once you have submitted your online application, call the shelter at 217-344-7297 and ask an adoption staff member to make your application active. We will begin processing your application the following day. Once you are approved for adoption, we will have Bessie's foster provider contact you to arrange an in-person meet and greet at CCHS. We are sure you will love this sweet girl just as much as we do! Questions? Don't hesitate to contact us at 217-344-7297. APPLY HERE: https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/CCIL-A-57903
