Runa's Story...
Runa is a Pit Bull Terrier mix, female, 1 year of age.

This gorgeous girl with the brindle coat possesses an innocently mischievous, puppy-like playfulness combined with a robust and genuine love for people. Sensitive and as sincere as they come, Runa craves companionship and close contact, and she needs an owner who appreciates her tender nature, while providing safe opportunities for her to meet new people and master new activities and situations…Runa’s confidence and trust grows with every new accomplishment.

Active and playful outdoors, calm and laid-back indoors, Runa needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay fit and happy. Leashed walks, outdoor romps and exploration, interactive play, and training sessions with family members will not only meet Runa’s modest exercise needs but will also help to build her confidence and further deepen trust.

With her sensitive nature as well as her youthful exuberance, Runa needs a responsible, caring owner who sets boundaries and provides routine and structure, as well as lots of loving attention…. whoever meets these criteria will be rewarded with life-long faithful companionship and devotion a thousand times over. In short…Runa’s hero!

Runa is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Runa 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.

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.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Runa, a Monroe Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Monroe, or seeking a 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 Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monroe paves the way for another one to be saved.
