Who We Are
The Monroe County Animal Shelter is a temporary home to many stray, abandoned, and unwanted animals. With our open door policy, we accept all cats and dogs from the Monroe County area that are without a home.
After animals are turned over to us, our job begins.
We work diligently to find loving permanent homes for our furry friends.
We know that each of them has something to offer.
We strive to build relationships with the community businesses and individuals. These partnerships give the animals brought to us a better chance at a long meaningful life.
While these animals are trusted in our care, we are working with them to become better adjusted and make the transition easier when they find their forever home.
Many volunteers come to the shelter each day to help with the daily tasks, but also take time to socialize with the animals, walking, bathing, brushing, and training them with clicker training.
We also have a Foster Care Program. We provide the food and medications, you provide the TLC. Foster placement is for a two week period prior to our "Rolling Rescue" to our sister shelter in NY. We are in urgent need of foster homes, please stop by to apply!
Adopting a friend
We try to keep our information as up to date as possible, but sometimes that proves to be a challange.
If you see a picture of an animal you are interested in, please feel free to give us a call or STOP IN!
With new animals arriving daily, your perfect pet is waiting.
The cost is only $95.00 to adopt a dog and $85.00 to adopt a cat. This adoption fee includes the spay or neuter of the animal, first worming, first vaccination, rabies shot, an engraved ID tag, and an unregistered microchip.
All animals must be spayed or neutered before leaving our shelter.
After you choose your new family member and complete the necessary adoption contract and fee, he/she will be sent to our local vet asap, then you can start your "happily ever after" together.
We are happy to adopt our pets out of the area or out of state, the adopter arranges transport.

Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.
