Smooth's Story...
Smooth is a Labrador Retriever-mix, male, 1.5 years of age.

Friendly, playful, very social, and fun-loving in a puppy-like manner, this happy, handsome guy is a totally people-oriented canine who will form deep bond with his family members. An intelligent, interested, and inquisitive dog who longs for human companionship and close contact, what he needs most are responsible, caring owners willing to provide him with the daily structure, time, and attention he needs and deserves. Confident and naturally authoritative leaders who establish rules and boundaries right from the start set Smooth up for success as the confident, happy, and well-mannered canine gentleman and family pet he so clearly was born to be.

Smooth is looking for a family who’ll welcome him into the fold and include him in family activities. Is that too much to ask? Smooth doesn’t think so. He thinks a few dog biscuits handed his way now and then would be in order, too! In exchange, his family members will receive loyalty and loving for a lifetime.

An animated, lively, and pretty intelligent canine who learns quickly and is easily trainable, Smooth will need regular physical and mental activity to stay happy and healthy. Leashed walks, interactive play sessions, and adventurous outings with his family will go a long way to meet most of his exercise needs. A dog who thoroughly enjoys outdoor activities, Smooth can be easily distracted by all the novel sights, sounds, and smells. We think he’d benefit from and really enjoy training and socialization classes – this will be an excellent way to bond with him as well as to reinforce good canine manners too.

Smooth 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 Smooth 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

Smooth, 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.
