Mild- mannered, calm, polite, a little bit reserved, highly sensitive, and sometimes a smidge too serious-minded, Vena is heart and soul, a people-pleasing, people-oriented dog who thrives with companionship and close contact. An extremely gentle and loving girl, she appears to have experienced some harsh treatment in her past life; and she needs a trustworthy, responsible, and caring owner who will provide the structure, leadership, and commitment necessary for her to finally feel safe and let loose her inner social butterfly (it’s there).
Sociable and friendly, amiable and affectionate, Vena is looking for family members who will lavish her with the time and attention she so needs and deserves. Warm-hearted, sincere, very sweet-natured, and looking to trust, Vena wants little more than to be a much-loved, always included family member with people who are as devoted to her as she will surely be to them.
An intelligent and extremely well-mannered girl who aims to please when she knows what is expected of her, Vena responds eagerly to cheerful, upbeat training, and she revels in praise for accomplishment. Lively, animated, interested, and inquisitive, she needs regular physical and mental activity to stay fit and happy. Vena’s a quick study who likes achievable challenges, and she’ll enjoy and benefit from training and socialization classes. This will be a great way to form a trust bond with her while also building her fledgling confidence, meeting her exercise needs, and reinforcing her good canine manners.
Still a bit uncertain of where she belongs in the world, Vena’s confidence will quickly rebound as she realizes her trust is well-placed in loyal, loving pack-members who she is certain she belongs with and who she knows always have her back. And make no mistake, Vena will return that faithful devotion one hundred-fold…it will be a very deserving family who earns the true-blue heart of this darling dog!
Vena is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to 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 Vena at the Monroe County Animal Control Shelter 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
