How about starting off your New Year with an adorable black Lab (mix) puppy? A litter of five pups is in foster care now and will be ready for adoption at CCHS  around the first of January. You can see photos of all five at the Pups Is Pups blog . Or, visit the Pups Is Pups Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pupsispups .
If an adult dog would be a better fit for you, please give Buddah a look. Buddah is currently available for adoption at CCHS  and is featured on the Pups Is Pups blog . You can also go straight to Buddah's official profile (& video) by clicking HERE .
Buddah is very playful and has already learned a number of tricks and basic manners training.
Check him out and watch his video at Pups Is Pups. 
Adoption Bonus: Buddah comes with a scholarship! A generous CCHS supporter has agreed to pay for Buddah's enrollment in a dog training class following his adoption.
For more information about the puppies or Buddah, contact the CCHS Adoption staff at 217-344-PAWS (7297).
Note: The shelter will be closing at 5:00 pm on Christmas eve and will be closed on Christmas day. Regular hours resume on Sunday the 26th.
