There are many reasons pets find their way to a shelter. There are also many wonderful ways that adopting a pet from a shelter is incredibly rewarding.

Shelter pets make great companions and shelters, like the Roice-Hurst Humane Society, have a wide range of dog and cat breeds, age, training, and backgrounds to choose from. It is a great place to look for a furry friend, maybe one of these.


  • Maverick

    1-Year-Old Retriever Labrador Mix

    Maverick has a sweet, loveable personality. He's learned some manners but still acts like a puppy. Maverick is also a bit head-strong, so an owner who can take a strong leadership role and keep him active would help him mature into a great companion.

  • Falcon

    2-Year-Old Terrier, American Pit Bull Mix

    Falcon is a people pet. He will befriend almost everyone he meets. Falcon would do really well with a family who can give him plenty of love, attention, and would enjoy taking his obedience training to the next level.

  • Ray

    2-Year-Old Poodle, Standard Mix

    Ray is a really shy dog who needs lots of love from a patient and understanding owner. He does well on a leash and loves to be outside, so a walk or jog with you suits him just fine. Because he's so timid, Ray would do best in a quiet, nurturing home.
