About Routt County Humane Society

Our community animal shelter was formerly used primarily as a holding facility for our local animal control services and was run by the City of Steamboat Springs. After many years of increasing involvement and support, the nonprofit Routt County Humane Society (RCHS) took over the municipal facility in May 2015 in order to create a full-scale animal shelter with adoption services and community programs. RCHS was established in 1985 and is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies heavily on financial and in-kind donations from our community in order to fully meet the needs of the animals in our care

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
