A private, non-profit NO KILL animal shelter, providing loving care for homeless cats and dogs until they are adopted.

Our guiding principal has always been to promote a safe sanctuary for lost and abandoned pets. A place where they not only receive food and shelter, but also the nourishment of love and attention from a staff that truly cares.

We have a vision.... a vision of finding a "forever home" for all abandoned and lost animals. We are working tirelessly to enlarge and upgrade our shelter so that we can save more lives.

Last year, Roice-Hurst found forever homes for almost 800 homeless animals! We need your help! Please become a member or donate what you can.

We offer low-cost vaccinations for both cats and dogs at our bi-monthly clinics and micro-chipping anytime during business hours, and we offer many volunteer opportunities.
