GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Roice-Hurst Humane Society helps dogs and cats in Grand Junction find new homes.

On Tuesday night, Colorado State alumni held a benefit to help raise money for the non-profit. A reception was held at Two Rivers Convention Center.

The benefit featured Dr. Lappin, who talked about some of his most inspiring "before and after" cases of animals left in the shelter with severe health issues. The benefit shined a light on Roice-Hurst and the work they do in the valley.

"Anytime we can get in front of people-- I don't care if it's 10 or 100 people -- it's beneficial. That's all it takes... people being aware and knowing that we need money to run the shelter," says Julie Butherus, president of Roice-Hurst Humane Society.

Roice-Hurst has between $100 to $150 invested in every animal that is in their shelter. At the benefit, people were asked to donate one bag of dog or cat food.
