Roice-Hurst Humane Society is a non-profit shelter and adoption center providing care for homeless dogs and cats in Mesa County, CO, since 1963. As a  501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity, we are funded by donations, service fees, and grants.Our Mission: To provide safety, shelter and care for homeless dogs and cats and place them in loving and "forever" homes.
We can't do it without your help, so please...
Won't you lend a helping hand  
to a deserving homeless pet?
Jake was a 10-yr.-old Lab mix with an advanced case of heartworm. He  was abandoned at a local boarding facility. Jake was the inspiration to create a fund to help all our pets who have extra-ordinary medical needs.

Please join our 
"Circle of Friends"   
Join a group of dedicated friends and supporters who sponsor a pet by donating a regular amount each month for the care of a chosen pet.

You will receive a personalized card with a picture and history of you chosen pet. 

Please.... Lend a helping hand today - Your heart will be happy you did!

Groups wanting to visit the shelter in order to view or play with our animals are limited in size. 
Groups of children or adults with special needs are limited to 4 people, including at least one adult supervisor. 

Groups must call ahead to schedule a tour at least 24 hours in advance.

The shelter environment, in the best of times, is stressful on the animals. The noise, the daily cleaning routines, and interactions with people and other animals can be stressful and  can compromise an animal's health.

Too many people in a group can also turn an animal's stress into aggressive behavior. 

Our prime concern is to keep all our visitors safe and our animals healthy and as stress free as possible.

A pair of bonded pets is often less work than single pets — they keep each other entertained and help prevent some of the separation anxiety issues that we often     see when pets are left alone." Besides, if you're looking for a pair of dogs, it's easier to adopt two that you're sure will get along. Happy Pets Make Happy Homes!

 Hi, my name is Hank; I am a 10 week old Australian Cattle Dog. I am a DEAF puppy who is looking for someone who has experience with deaf dogs, and is willing to work with me and my special need. I need a home without kids because I am a bit nippy (common trait of Cattle Dogs). I'm a typical puppy going through this stage, and not being able to hear, I need someone who is patient and steadfast. Please understand I'm very smart; it will just take some time to train me, but I have lots of potential!
