Foster a Pet
Looking for a way to      make a difference? 
Fostering a pet may not change the world, but it will certainly change the world for that one 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. 
Jake's Fund
Please join our "Circle of Friends;"   
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.

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.
Group Visitor Policy
City Market has changed the program to "Community Rewards" and is requiring all former donors to the "City Market Cares" program to re-enroll in "Community Rewards."
If you were formerly signed up for the "City Market Cares" program, your donations are no longer valid.
City Market will donate 1% of your total grocery purchases to Roice-Hurst. 
Every time you shop, you are helping to 
"Save One Life At A Time"!

Benefits of Adopting a Bonded Pair

Adopting a bonded pair of dogs can be a rewarding experience for the dogs and their human. 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.
