Roice-Hurst Humane Society is a nonprofit 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.
Adopting a shelter pet is not only just the right thing to do, it's also a great bargain. All the benefits you receive by adopting adds up to a great value. The love, loyalty, and gratitude of a shelter pet is invaluable.
There are times when the human/animal bond breaks or circumstances change and a guardian must relinquish a pet. A health examination and behavior assessment will determine if your pet is suited for our adoption program.

50 YEARS of SAVING the LIVES OF HOMELESS PETS!
It's our 50th Anniversary of serving the needs of homeless pets in Mesa County and Western Colorado. We have helped thousands of amazing pets find loving human companions since 1963. Roice-Hurst was founded by a grassroots citizen's group led by the Ival Hurst and Joe Roice families who were concerned for the welfare of animals in, at that time, a predominantly agricultural area.
Initially the goal was to simply provide a home for stray, unwanted animals with whatever monies the two families and their friends could spare. Joe Roice donated the first shelter, a chicken coop on his land. With diligent work the families brought the small rescue operation to life and the Society was formally born.
Today Roice-Hurst Humane Society finds homes for hundreds of animals each year. Our newly remodeled facility allows us to offer shelter to more animals and our enhanced skill level offers a consistently higher level of care.
Throughout the year, we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary with special events and offerings, with a grand event in September. Keep an eye on our web site for future details.
To kick off our celebration, The Sunset Slope Quilters, under the direction of our wonderful volunteer - Jackie Aguilar, created two large quilts, one for dogs and the other for cats, to be raffled off in December to cap the 50th anniversary of RHHS.
The raffle tickets are now available at $5 each and can be purchased by contacting RH members Elaine at: (cell 970-986-5819) or Jackie (cell 970-261-5421.)
