A five-year-old Boxer Mix, “Elaine” is the WJLE/DeKalb Animal Shelter Featured “Pet of the Week.” She is also currently the oldest pet resident at the shelter and needs a forever home as soon as possible.

“Elaine has been with us since December. She came from a very bad situation, but we and other volunteers worked with her and she has come a long way. Elaine is well behaved and excellent on a leash. She seems to be clean and is doing very well outdoors. She doesn’t make a mess and waits patiently for her food every morning. Elaine is a good girl all around. She was spayed, tested for heartworms, microchipped and vaccinated. We really want to find him a home,” said shelter manager Emmaly Bennett.

Visit our website at and complete and submit an adoption application and we will call you to come meet Elaine,” Bennett said.

The shelter is open Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm and Saturday 8am to 12pm on Transfer Station Road behind Tenneco Automotive.
