Kyleigh's Info...

Kyleigh's Story...
Kyleigh is a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier-mix, female, 2 years of age. Intake: 3-12-15.

Roll out the red-carpet for elegant, graceful, long-legged beauty Kyleigh…with an endearingly sweet personality to match, she is one real star of a canine! She is no Hollywood air-head either…this girl is a quick-study; intelligent, attentive and perceptive, she quietly observes and is interested without being excitable.

Even-tempered and undemanding, Kyleigh does not need to be on top of her people to be happy; she is quite content to hang-out near-by. But make no mistake, once she claims a family as her “pack”, Kyleigh will be a fawningly devoted fan. Exceptionally calm and laid-back, we expect Kyleigh will be companionable with any housemate dog, especially one of similar size and opposite sex.

Hale and hearty now, Kyleigh came into the shelter in poor shape: emaciated/malnourished, dehydrated, and with a chain collar too tight around her neck. She has also received treatment for Parvo/Campylobacter, a secondary upper respiratory infection (pneumonia), and Giardia during her stay.

To continue at her healthiest and happiest, Kyleigh needs regular exercise along with mental stimulation such as toys, canine puzzles and interactive play with family members. Kyleigh is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, we recommend a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Kyleigh at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

For more information you can email carrie_nation@monroemi.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kyleigh, a Monroe Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Monroe, or seeking a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Monroe.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monroe already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Monroe breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
