Rehoming Your Dog

We know rehoming your pet is a difficult decision. Our mission is to create, promote, and preserve bonds between pets and their people — if you feel you can no longer care for your pet because of pet behavior challenges, housing insecurity, financial hardship, or other crisis situations, we can provide or direct you to resources that may help you keep your pet at home.
If you believe rehoming your pet through Roice-Hurst Humane Society is the best decision for your situation, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. This form will help us find the most appropriate foster/adoption placement and the best outcome for your pet, so please set aside 15 minutes to complete the form in its entirety and with detail. Please note that submitting a form is not a guarantee that we will be able to take in your pet, and we often have a wait list for animals entering the shelter. You will be called to make an appointment to bring your pet to the shelter.

Please bring the following items to your appointment:

  • Veterinary records, including vaccination records and proof of spay/neuter, if applicable
  • Any medications or supplements your pet is currently taking
  • Any of your pet’s belongings (blankets, beds, toys, etc.)
  • A few servings of their food
  • Any forms not submitted online

We are unable to accept the following animals:

Walk-Ins

Out of fairness to the pets on our wait lists and because we typically operate at full capacity, we are unable to accommodate walk-ins without an appointment.

Found Pets in Mesa County

Because we are not an animal law enforcement agency in Mesa County, we cannot accept stray dogs found in Mesa County. However, for your convenience, we have two 24-hour Mesa County Animal Services holding kennels outside our shelter for found dogs.

If you have found a dog in Delta County, please visit our Delta satellite facility at 720 W. 4th St. in Delta or call 970-874-1078 for more information.

We are unable to accept stray cats, as cats are legally allowed to freely roam outdoors. However, we are able to scan a found cat for a microchip to attempt to locate an owner.

Adult Feral Cats

Feral cats are cats that are unsocialized to humans and typically live outdoors. Because feral cats are not appropriate to place in a home environment and are not adoptable, we are unable to accept unsocialized cats older than 10 weeks old.

Any Species Other Than Dogs & Cats

We are only able to accept dogs and cats.
