Willa's Story...
Willa is an English Pointer-mix, female, 2 years of age.

Beautiful Willa craves a connection to people and yearns to bond. We can’t know for sure why this adorably endearing, closet snuggle-bunny is sometimes wary and hesitant, but it’s evident she is searching for that person or family who is worthy of her trust and can help restore her confidence in people. Longing for companionship and close contact with people, Willa currently finds herself in the unfortunate circumstance of being people-less…maybe your family can help her out?

This sweet-natured girl wishes for a place to call home; a home with a welcomed spot on the couch or soft bed to crash on and---most importantly—a loving family who includes in her daily activities and embraces her with their whole hearts. Loyal and true, fawning and genuinely sincere, above-all-else, Willa is looking for a responsible, caring owner who will cherish her and reciprocate her faithful devotion for a lifetime.

Sociable and friendly, but extremely sensitive and sometimes shy, Willa needs people in her life who while appreciating her tender nature are also providing opportunities for her to meet new people and master new activities and situations -- Willa’s confidence and trust grows with every new accomplishment. Patient direction, consistent follow-through, lots of positive experiences, and calm, trustworthy owners who provide her with the structure and routine she needs and craves -- these things help set Willa up for success….whoever meets these criteria will be rewarded with life-long companionship complete with heartily expressed love and affection and unquestioning loyalty a thousand times over.

Like all dogs, Willa needs regular physical and mental exercise to stay fit and happy. An attentive and intelligent dog with a strong desire to please and high learning ability, Willa will enjoy and benefit from training and socialization classes. This will be an excellent way to build a trust-bond with her while meeting some of her exercise needs, building her confidence, and reinforcing canine good manners.

Willa 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 Willa 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

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