“Hunter has been neutered and ready to go. He loves other dogs and like cats. Hunter is perfect for anyone who isn’t necessarily looking for a high energy dog. He is super laid back. If you would like to meet Hunter go to our website, fill out an adoption application, send it in, and we will call you and set up an appointment for you to get to know Hunter,” said Shelter employee Emmaly Bennett.

Meanwhile, the DeKalb Animal Shelter is currently nursing back to good health 10 dogs who were recently brought in with medical issues.

One of the dogs is “Skylar” (shown in this video)

“On Friday the 11th we took in 10 dogs from our community in need of medical assistance. Since then, each dog has been given a name, vaccinations, Heartworm screened, microchipped, dewormed, flea prevention & plenty of food,” said Shelter Director Megan Moore.

“Even though these dogs are malnourished, loaded with parasites and were in a significantly less than ideal living situation, they are improving every day. We ask for your support and understanding during this time as we continue to provide care, socialization and ongoing medical attention for each dog,” she said.

As for Skylar, Moore said he is doing really well and has just learned to walk on a leash.

“Stay tuned for updates on Facebook on when they will become available for adoption,” said Moore.

“We are still doing everything by appointment only. Give us a call and we can walk you through that process or visit our facebook page. You can find our adoption application at On the adopt tab scroll all the way to the bottom to find the application and send it to our email and we will call you and schedule an appointment,” said Bennett.

The shelter, located on Transfer Station Road behind Tenneco Automotive off Highway 70 east in Smithville, has been in operation since November, 2017 under the DeKalb Animal Coalition, a 501 c 3 non profit organization.
