Animal Resource Center

The Animal Resource Center highlights our mission of “promoting bonds between pets and their people” and strives to keeps pets in homes with their families through various avenues:

The number one reason animals are surrendered is because of behavior issues. The good news is that often these concerns can be resolved with some patience and persistence. Our behavior counselors are here to offer guidance and advice. Consultations for behavior assistance are free to Roice-Hurst adopters for 30-days after adoption and $25 per hour for the public.
