​What to Expect After You Adopt 
Relinquishing Your Pet

Our Adoption Fees
Our adoption fees range from $25 to $199. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the many animals that need our help. We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to help support our animals  until we can place them in a loving forever home.

The adoption fee for each animal varies and is dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition and public demand.

There are times when the human/animal bond
 breaks or circumstances change and a guardian
 must relinquish a pet. Before you make a decision 
to give up your pet, be sure to consider other alternatives. Click "Read More" below for more information and our relinquishment policies and fees.
High Demand Pets

Some of the animals in our adoption center are HDP (High demand pets) These are dogs and cats that are  pure breeds or otherwise in high demand and quickly find a loving home. You will notice that our HDP animals have a higher adoption price - this is because the adoption fees for these pets help to offset the higher cost of long term care  for the other animals in our shelter who may need extensive medical care or more time to find a loving home.

At Roice-Hurst Humane Society we are committed to finding homes for companion animals. Our progressive adoption program has placed thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted pets with loving guardians. Financial contributions from our community and supporters directly benefit our animals. 
​What You Get With Our Adoption Package

The fact that you're thinking of adopting from an  shelter means you're on the right track—it's definitely the responsible, caring thing to do. Here are some things to think over before you adopt a dog or cat. Things like... 
  • Why do you want a pet?
  • Do you have time for a pet?
  • Can you afford a pet?
  • Are you ready for the responsibility of pet ownersip?
  • Who will care for your pet while you're on vacation or out of town?
Things to Consider

Your new dog or cat may have been abandoned, lost, or surrendered for various reasons. The pet had to adjust to life at Roice-Hurst, and maybe even a previous shelter. Now he or she is going to another new, unfamiliar place with strangers. Kind of scary if you think about it. Being gentle, kind, and patient will help ease your new pet into his new home and life.
