Almyra's Story...
Almyra is a Siberian Husky, female, 5 years of age.

Siberian Huskies are loving, gentle, playful, happy-go-lucky dogs known for being fond of their families, gentle with children, and friendly with strangers. Spot on an ambassador for her breed, Almyra is an extremely cheerful, affectionate, social, and rather casually-relaxed canine who is welcoming of everyone.

Pack-oriented, she loves people and thrives on human companionship; she simply will not do well if left alone for long periods of time. Lively, animated, curious, and sometimes playful, she’s an Arctic sled dog and she’s extremely overweight, so she needs a fair amount of physical and mental exercise to get and stay healthy, as well as happy and well-behaved.

While highly intelligent, quite trainable, and built to follow a pack-leader, she is only going to obey if she sees humans as stronger minded than herself. Without proper training, structure and routine, and confident, consistent leadership, she’s going to take liberties, most likely becoming willful and mischievous. Of importance too is that she is a cold climate dog, so common sense must be factored in with respect to maintaining her in the heat.

In a nutshell, Almyra will make an excellent family companion for owners who are aware of what to expect from this beautiful and intelligent canine and are willing to put the time and energy in to her. Obedient and well-mannered on a leash with experienced handlers; she can put new handlers to the leadership test. Once she understands the rules and that they are going to be adhered to though, she’s completely on board and pretty enthusiastic about learning and accomplishing new things; she’s also attentive and a pleasure to handle.

Almyra 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 Almyra 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

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