Talk about a cutie! If it isn’t Love-at-first-Sight, it will certainly be Love-at-first-Meeting! Peppermint is an absolute, total package gem of a girl. Affectionate and endearing, she is ever so ready to move on from the shelter and into the loving embrace of her new family. This friendly and social girl absolutely craves companionship and close contact, and she flourishes with attention…what she wants above all else is to be that well-loved, always included canine family member. Peppermint will give as good as she gets---her deeply devoted lifelong bond is her offering for the same in return.
Genuinely well-meaning and mostly obedient, Peppermint could use a bit of help with focus…she is somewhat distractible outdoors. All that means is she needs a responsible, caring owner who provides the leadership and structure which guides her easily side-tracked mindset and allows her to flourish into the happy-go-lucky and fun-loving, but still well-mannered family pet we’re sure she is meant to be.
A quick learner, she would certainly enjoy and excel in obedience – this will also be a great way to establish leadership, form a strong trust bond with her, and reinforce canine good manners. Regular leashed walks, interactive outdoor play, and adventurous jaunts with family members will meet most of this girl’s exercise needs. Like all dogs, she needs regular physical activity and mental stimulation to be at her healthiest and happiest, and she thrives with structure, rules, and routine. Come to the shelter and meet Peppermint---Here’s to Love-at-first-Sight!
Peppermint 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 Peppermint 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 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.
