Foster pet challenge

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KREX) – Mesa County teams up with Roice-Hurst Humane Society this morning around 10 a.m. for a press conference Monday, June 13, at the Mesa County Animal Services, 971A Coffman Road in Whitewater. The purpose of the press conference was to announce the introduction of a foster pet challenge, which encourages people to open their hearts and homes to a furry friend who is waiting for their forever home. 

“Fostering a dog or cat means volunteering to provide short-term care to a shelter pet in your  

home,” Anna Stout, CEO of Roice-Hurst Humane Society, said. “When you foster an animal, you’re  

helping two pets: the one you bring into your home and the one we can now bring into the shelter  

due to that space opening up.” 

“The walls of our shelters are as big as the community of supporters who surround us,” Janet  

Rowland, Mesa County Commissioner, said. “Support through fostering makes a tangible impact on  

the lives of many homeless pets and gives the foster the additional benefit of the company of a new  

companion for a little while.”
