If needed Roice-Hurst says they're ready to help during hurricanes

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Hurricane Florence is affecting millions of people, and often it's the pets that can be forgotten.

Last year during Hurricane Harvey, Roice-Hurst took in almost 20 dogs and had the capacity to take 50 into foster care.

Roice-Hurst says since we are so far away, it’s more cost effective to have dogs go to shelters closer to the hurricane.

However, if they need help, they will never turn down pets in need.

"If we get a call from any of our partners across the nation that are in a position that they need us to help, we will absolutely help we will do what we can to accommodate, we are very fortunate in Colorado that we’re not dealing with an overpopulation of dogs so we regularly bring in dogs from other states to meet the demand of our adopters,” said Anna Stout, Executive Director of Roice-Hurst Humane Society.

Roice-Hurst Humane Society is part of local and international networks that call on shelters in their time of need and help send resources. They tell us they check those websites daily.
