What if a government shutdown happened? Five things to know

Champaign County Pet of the Week


Lady is a 5-year-old female Husky/Collie mix. She is a medium-sized dog at 45 pounds. Lady came to us as a lost dog. She loves to play ball and go for walks. Lady knows several commands (sit, shake, down are the ones we’ve discovered so far). She is potty trained. Due to a cataract, she is blind in one eye but seems to do just fine. Lady will make some family a wonderful companion. She is up to date on vaccinations (including rabies) and has tested negative for heartworm.

Come visit Lady at the Paws Animal Shelter, 1535 W. U.S. Highway 36, in Urbana. You can also visit www.facebook.com/paws.urbana or petfinder.com. Shelter hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and closed Sundays and Mondays. The shelter can be reached at 937-653-6233.
