Champaign County Pet of the Week

Casper is a 1 to 2-year-old male. We’re not sure what breeds are in his past. He is a medium-sized dog at 35 pounds. Casper was surrendered to us by his owner (an elderly woman who could no longer care for him). Casper is a happy, playful dog who is a little timid around strangers. He has been neutered and is up to date on vaccinations (including rabies) and has tested negative for heartworm.

Come visit him at the Paws Animal Shelter, 1535 W. U.S. Highway 36 in Urbana. You can also visit

or petfinder.com. Shelter hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and closed Sunday and Monday. We can be reached at 937-653-6233.
