Those soulful eyes seem to be pleading, “Please, please let me join your family!” Sensitive, people-loving Ali sorely misses human companionship… in fact this darling little girl is craving companionship and close contact, and she longs for a family to call her own. Shelter life is particularly difficult for social, but somewhat shy, soft souls like Ali, who are especially “pack” oriented.
What Ali yearns for is a responsible, caring owner who will provide her with the daily structure and patient, loving guidance she needs, and which in turn, will help bolster, both, her confidence and her trust in people.
Underneath that currently hesitant and uncertain façade is a fun-loving, very light-hearted canine – polite and extremely loving: Ali is simply waiting to know where she belongs – to know that she belongs! And you betcha, once welcomed into her loving forever home, removed from the stresses of shelter life, we are certain Ali’s self-assurance will rebound, and she will absolutely thrive in the role she was born for – that of beloved family pet and companion, offering to her new family members, without inhibition, her utmost loyalty and deep, deep allegiance.
Like all dogs, Ali will also need regular mental and physical activity to be at her happiest and healthiest, but her exercise needs are not extreme in the least. Regular leashed walks, unstructured time off leash in a securely enclosed yard, obedience training, and some interactive play with family members should suffice. Throw in some adventurous outings with her much-adored family members – well – Pure Heaven in her book!
Ali is more than ready to leave the shelter behind. She’ll form deep bonds with the loving family who “bails her out” of the shelter and embraces her as one of their own. And to those heroes, Ali’s every move will be saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Ali 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 Ali 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.
