Roice-Hurst Humane Society is a nonprofit animal shelter in western Colorado that provides individualized care and adoption services for dogs and cats. Last year, more than 1,000 lost or homeless pets received the care they needed at Roice-Hurst, and hundreds more were served through Roice-Hurst’s programs designed to help pet owners keep and care for their beloved pets. Programs include a pet pantry, low-cost vaccination clinics, spay/neuter assistance, pet behavior counseling, a crisis pet boarding program, and Homeward Hounds, which provides dignified shelter for people experiencing homelessness with their pets. Roice-Hurst Humane Society also operates a satellite facility in Delta, Colorado, allowing lost and found pets to return home safely. Roice-Hurst is a socially-conscious animal shelter that works diligently to match animals to their forever homes, however long that may take. 


Roice-Hurst Humane Society's mission is to promote bonds between pets and their people. We envision a community that is healthier for and thanks to its pets. We are guided by compassion, collaboration, stewardship, leadership, and excellence.

Background Statement

Roice-Hurst Humane Society is a nonprofit organization providing safety, shelter, and care for lost and homeless dogs and cats in western Colorado since 1963. Roice-Hurst Humane Society is funded by donations, service fees, and grants.

We are proud to be a socially conscious shelter, where every treatable and behaviorally safe pet will find a loving home, no matter how long that may take.

Today, the shelter remains a vital, supported, and recognized community asset known for its groundbreaking approach to animal welfare. We know that human and pet health is profoundly interconnected, which is why our innovative programs are designed to not only get pets into loving homes, but to keep them there through our variety of social support services for pet owners.
