Our Mission: Promoting bonds between pets and their people.
Roice-Hurst Humane Society, Inc. is a nonprofit organization providing safety, shelter, and care for homeless dogs and cats in Mesa County, CO, since 1963. We promote no euthanizing of any healthy, treatable and adoptable pet. As a private 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, the society is funded by contributions, service fees, and grants.
Today, the shelter remains a vital, supported, and recognized community asset in helping to provide adoption and educational services to pets and their people in the Grand Valley.
"This place is probably the best place to adopt a dog or cat and here's why...
It all starts with a warm friendly greeting from the office staff, always willing to help and answer any questions you have with years of knowledge behind them. Than we have the kennel staff who work so hard to make sure the dogs get lots of time outside of the kennels, play dates with other dogs and lots of human interaction. Every time I walk in there the kennels smell clean, the dogs have fresh, cold water and a nice cozy area to rest on. For being a shelter dog they really have it good!
Usually when you think of a cat room you imagine hair balls and nasty smells. Well at RH the cat rooms are top notch! Fresh liter boxes, clean blankets, fresh food (WET and dry) and water and happy cats even when it's a bit crowded!
Before I went to a shelter I always imagined seeing the poor dogs and cats so miserable and I thought I'd want to leave with all of them, but RH really takes great care of these animals, so I don't have to take them all, just one!
My husband and I adopted our Great Dane/lab mix from RH about 3 years ago. He is a handful but seriously the best dog for many reasons. Without RH, we wouldn't have found out awesome companion. Being a rescue organization is probably one of the most difficult businesses around, so not only do I rate the business a 5* I also rate the Amazing staff a 5*!
You all do amazing work, and the ANIMALS wouldn't be there without your hard work, caring personalities and love for what you do."
"I love to just visit this place often. Very professional, animals are well taken care of. Friendly and they work hard at finding each animal the best home on an individual basis."
"We just adopted a dog last week and the staff was great in helping us make the best selection. Offered lot of training tips during our time spent with our pup before we adopted him. Everyone was friendly, open, and honest about our dog and the many other dogs we met. They seem to adopt very quickly and gave us a neat little goody bag as well as obedience training for free and a free two week vet checkup. Thanks for all you guys do!"
