Home is where the heart is, and no home is complete unless the heart is filled with love. Elena has been a special resident of the Humane Society of El Paso for the better part of 2016. Elena came from a home that was very full, but not with love: Elena was rescued from a hoarding case in Las Cruces, where she lived in deplorable and inhumane conditions with dozens of other dogs. Elena and a male counterpart, named Damon who was adopted a few months ago, were transferred from Animal Services Center of Mesilla Valley in January. Elena was terribly under-socialized, and suffered from extreme anxiety. Elena’s mental health has been slowly improving over the past few months, but she was still missing a piece of her heart. Elena had neither a home of her very own, nor a person who was devoted to loving her.
