Champaign County Pet of the Week

Dixie is a 3-year-old female tiger cat. She was brought to Paws the day after she gave birth to a litter of kittens. Dixie is a sweet loving girl. Her smile is a little crooked because she has a snaggle tooth. This doesn’t cause her any problems, and the vet said it would do more harm than good to remove it. Dixie has been spayed, is up to date on vaccinations (including rabies) and has tested negative for feline leukemia.

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