Facts about Anya

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Gray/Blue/Silver/Salt & Pepper
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Anya is a Pit Bull Terrier-mix, female, 2 years of age.

A total-package family pet, this gorgeous, calm, and affectionate canine girl will form a deep bond with kind owners who reciprocate the warmth and allegiance she offers. Anya absolutely craves close contact and attention, she thrives with companionship, and she wants above all else to be welcomed into her new forever family. A heart-and-soul, people-loving young girl, Anya is all about the bonds she will share with her family. Playful, friendly, sensitive, and intelligent, she is more than ready to leave the shelter behind to begin the next role of her life…that of much-loved, always included, furry family member!

Nothing will set Anya up for success like responsible, caring owners who provide the routine and structure she, like all dogs, want; this provides a measure of security as well as a sense of belonging. A bit on the shy side, unsure of what to expect, Anya also needs an owner who respects her need to size up new situations and people…only a respectful minute is necessary, though, as she warms up very quickly. To help build her confidence, she needs patient leadership from family members who present achievable challenges towards which she can strive and accomplish; Anya utterly revels inwarm praise when she accomplishes a task! Positive socialization experiences will also boost her confidence and help ensure she is a happy, well-mannered dog.

Like all dogs, Anya needs, both, physical and mental activity to stay happy and healthy. Regular leashed walks, interactive outdoor play, and adventurous jaunts with adored family members will meet most of this girl’s exercise needs. And no doubt at the close of each day, Anya will surely appreciate the leisure time where she can snuggle up close for some hands-on affection!

Anya 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 Anya 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.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a dog or cat from the shelter: We adopt on a first come, first serve basis. You must come into the shelter and fill out an adoption application and put down a $10 non-refundable application fee to secure your spot for adoption. Currently the cost for adopting a shelter animal is $35. $10 is a non-refundable application fee, $25 is collected for the spay/neuter portion of the contract. Adopters sign a contract agreeing to have the dog/cat spayed or neutered within 30 days. We are currently offering a Voucher at the time of adoption. The voucher covers the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. There are 9 area Veterinarians that are participating in this program and the surgery must be done at one of these vets.

If you rent and want to adopt, before we start the adoption process, you must come in with a letter from your Landlord, with a copy of their picture ID, stating you may have an animal in your house. If you own or rent a mobile home or live in an Apartment complex, we must have a letter on the parks letterhead from the manager stating you can have an animal in your home.
