Gilligan's Story...
Gilligan is a Labrador Retriever-mix, male, 2 years of age.

Gentle, warm-hearted Gilligan is a sensitive charmer who just can’t wait for his forever family to come take him home. Sweetly affectionate, loyal and steadfast, Gilligan yearns to form a deep, life-long bond with owners who cherish him as much as he cherishes them. A dog who will be inquisitive and interested outdoors, quiet and pleasantly calm indoors, Gilligan is up for any adventure by day, and ready to cuddle and snooze, devotedly, near his family by evening.

Needing some TLC and patient, loving guidance and leadership to help bolster his somewhat fledgling confidence, these things, when provided from a responsible, caring owner will allow him to him to flourish into the happy, self-possessed, and well-mannered family pet he is meant to be. Shelter life can take its toll on a sensitive soul like Gilligan. Once in a welcoming and loving home, removed from the stresses of shelter life, Gilligan’s confidence, will, no doubt, quickly rebound. An intelligent and extremely social youngster who is quick to please when he knows what is expected of him, Gilligan will surely appreciate being provided safe opportunities to meet new people and master new activities and situations.

This handsome boy has a very sweet disposition, and he is a wholly sincere guy who aims to please at every turn; it’s very important to him that he is making his people happy. Like all dogs, Gilligan also needs regular mental stimulation and physical activity to stay happy and healthy. His exercise needs are not extreme though, and they can be met with leashed walks, outdoor playtime and exploration, and/or training sessions which he will thoroughly enjoy. With his exercise needs met, he’ll be content to simply hang out near his beloved family members.

Gilligan 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 Gilligan 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

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