Monroe, MI - Pet Adoption. Monroe County Animal Control Shelter has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens to adopt.
Monroe SPCA is currently working on a community lost and found program which will help to reunite lost animals with their owners. Our recently launched Wish List program, which we will soon expand, allows us to collect and distribute much needed daily, essential care items - all of which help to improve the quality of life for animals most in-need of it. We also host, frequently in partnership with others, community support programs which promote responsible pet ownership and provide assistance to displaced animals in area shelters, as well as pet owners facing economic hardships and other temporary emergency situations.
Monroe SPCA has spent the last year developing and promoting programs which increase awareness about humane and responsible solutions to pet overpopulation, homelessness, and sheltering. Our initial education and outreach programs are focused on establishing humane value standards for displaced animals and raising awareness, dispelling myths, and elevating the status of free-roaming and feral cats and colonies, as well as Pit bull and Pit bull-type dogs.

Monroe County Animal Control (Animal Shelters) Monroe, MI - Dogster
The Humane Society of Monroe County is a no-kill shelter. We opened in 1954 by a group of concerned citizens and currently operate with a small staff and a Board of Directors. We have a small limited intake shelter for homeless dogs and cats who are waiting for new homes. We receive no governmental assistance or funding from the Humane Society of Michigan or the Humane Society of the United States for operating expenses. We are entirely dependent upon the compassion and generosity of animal lovers such as yourselves. Rehoming Your Pet: Before surrendering a pet to a shelter, MHS recommends first trying to find a suitable home for your pet by spreading the word among friends, relatives and co-workers. Give yourself a few weeks to place the animal in a good home, and never give away your pet to someone without screening the person/home carefully and asking for references. Please do not give your pet away "Free to a Good Home" as there are unscrupulous individuals who could harm your pet or sell the animal for research to make money. Asking a reasonable fee may help deter such people.4. DOCUMENTATION FROM THE VETERINARIAN CONFIRMING THAT YOUR ANIMAL HAS BEEN SPAYED OR NEUTERED MUST BE BROUGHT BACK TO THE MONROE COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER.Monroe SPCA works with and supports reputable and transparent animal welfare organizations and rescue groups throughout Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio. Because needed change for displaced animals in our community continues to be prevented and animals continue to suffer, largely as a result of systemic problems plaguing Monroe County’s two licensed animal shelters, resolving them is at the top of Monroe SPCA’s priority list.
