Julie Butherus locked up with fur babies!

Julie met bail, but the Warden has cited her with a bond violation and put her back in the slammer! Her bail is being raised by $150!

Thanks to Julie's adoring husband, Mike, Julie's bail has been raised by $175!

As most of you know, I have been a supporter, donor and volunteer at Roice-Hurst Humane Society for 10 years. I am excited to be participating in our first annual "Shelter Break" and hope that you will help me raise money for our fur babies! Roice-Hurst has come a long way in the 10 years I have been involved and we have made great strides for animal care in the Grand Valley. Our staff and volunteers at Roice-Hurst are the best! We continue to be able to implement new and innovating programs to help folks in our community be better pet owners. Please join me in making our first "Shelter Break" a great success! Not a bad gig, being locked up with fur babies!!

ABOUT Shelter Break 2018

Help us raise money to bail the dogs and cats at Roice-Hurst out of the shelter!

Join us at the first annual Shelter Break and break these pets out of the shelter for good! Friday, June 22, 2018 from 9am-4pm at Roice-Hurst Humane Society (362 28 Road).

What is Shelter Break? At Shelter Break, members of our community will be “locked up” with our dogs and cats for a day to raise money for Roice-Hurst Humane Society. These Canine Convicts and Feline Felons will raise money before and during the event to post their bail. Throughout their lock-up, they will help us all understand what it’s like to be a shelter pet waiting for their time to go home and will raise funds to care for these pets in the meantime!

How do I participate? First and foremost, donate to this page! You have been invited to help a friend, family member, coworker, or even sworn enemy raise money for the animals at Roice-Hurst. Click on the green "Donate" button to the right and follow the prompts to make your donation. In the event of a sworn enemy, a boss, or a partner you want to keep locked up to have a little extra time to yourself on June 22, contribute instead to the "anti-bail" of Warden Anna to help keep someone locked up as they get close to meeting their bail goal! Just note in your donor message whose bail you want to contribute against and Warden Anna will make it happen.

How else can I participate? Consider becoming one of our Canine Convicts or Feline Felons like the person above who invited you to contribute! Your time in lock-up is a wonderful contrast to the busy life you lead, giving you quality time with a homeless pet that appreciates every moment of your time and attention. Take time away from work to gain some perspective and empathy for these animals awaiting their forever homes. What’s more, you (and your company) will have valuable exposure on social media as someone who cares deeply enough about animals in our community to spend a day in their paws. Click here to have us create a fundraising page for you or on the "Create a Page" button to the right to create your own. 

Click the "All Fundraisers" button to the right and browse all the personal fundraising pages to donate to the bail of any of our Canine Convicts or Feline Felons. Feel free to join us throughout the day on June 22 and see our inmates and their penmates, or join us for a celebration barbecue catered by Rib City at 4pm in our side yard. You can also donate treats for the people and the pets to be handed out during lock-down!
