Senior dogs deserve a good home too!

If you have room in your home and heart for a lovable 10 year old Australian Shepherd then meet “Molly” the WJLE/DeKalb Animal Shelter featured “Pet of the Week”

“Molly is a senior. We think she is about 10 years old. Molly is an Australian Shepherd mix and she is super sweet. We have discovered that she loves playing with other dogs including puppies but she really loves everybody,” said Shelter employee Emmaly Bennett.

“The younger dogs really bring out the young dog in her. She’s calm most of the time but when she sees a puppy she starts jumping around trying to play. Molly is small to medium in size at about 35 pounds and she has been spayed. Her adoption fee is only $50 to an approved application,” said Shelter Director Megan 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 Moore.

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.

A volunteer orientation will be held at the shelter on Saturday, August 15 from 12 noon until 1 p.m. for anyone who would like to volunteer. Please wear a mask for the class. Phone 615-597-3647 (DOGS) for more information.
