Cake's Story...
Cake is a Boxer/Great Dane-mix, male, 3 years of age. Cake is currently receiving medical treatment for bilateral eye infections and a scratch on his cornea which he came into animal control having.

With a name like Cake, he’s got to be sweet! And indeed he is - beefy and brawny too, Cake’s an enthusiastic, happy-go-lucky, big goof of a dog who loves to play and hang out with his family. This infectiously happy guy adores people, playtime, and attention pretty much equally, and he thrives with routine and structure. Having a responsible, naturally authoritative, and caring owner who provides the leadership he needs, sets Cake up for success as the confident, happy, and well-mannered canine companion we’re sure he is meant to be.

Sociable, loyal and very devoted, Cake is quick to please when he knows what is expected of him and he revels in praise for accomplishment. A people-oriented dog who craves companionship, he’s looking to be welcomed as a cherished family pet who is included in daily activities. Simply happy-to-be-around and extremely affectionate with “his people,” this handsome boy is playful and fun-loving, and while both well-intentioned and endearing with his sometimes silly antics, Cake will need some patient guidance with consistent follow-through to help appropriately channel his joyful, “brimming-over-with-enthusiasm,” puppy-like exuberance.

Highly intelligent, quick to learn, interested, athletic, and inquisitive, Cake will need regular physical activity and mental stimulation to stay happy, healthy, and well-behaved. He loves outdoor activities, especially if that means a leashed walk, some vigorous interactive play time, obedience training, or anything involving quality time spent with his family. A home with a securely enclosed yard where he can safely romp and explore the world around him on his own and with his much-adored family members would be a huge bonus for Cake too.

Cake is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active to 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 Cake 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

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