Visitor Policies

As our community takes steps to limit the spread of COVID-19, Roice-Hurst Humane Society is focused on protecting the health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff, volunteers, and the community we serve. Therefore all tours and large groups of visitors are suspended until further notice. We hope to get through this community crisis and once again open our doors to our generous, pet-loving community. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Groups wanting to visit the shelter in order to view or play with our animals are limited in size.

Groups of children or adults with special needs are limited to 4 people, including at least one adult supervisor.

Groups must call ahead to schedule a tour at least 24 hours in advance.

The shelter environment, in the best of times, is stressful on the animals. The noise, the daily cleaning routines, and interactions with people and other animals can be stressful and can compromise an animal’s health.

Too many people in a group can also turn an animal’s stress into aggressive behavior.

Our prime concern is to keep all our visitors safe and our animals healthy and as stress free as possible.
