The Humane Society of Greater Dayton has been helping the people and pets in our community since 1902. That is 116 years! We were here before the Wright Brothers flew their plane. We were here before Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii were even states. We were here when the man walked on the moon. We have been here helping animals and will continue to do so for the Miami Valley.
As the area’s largest and most-established no-kill animal welfare agency, we are devoted to the animals in our community. Every year, more than 1,500 animals find loving, forever homes! Plus, through our extensive spay/neuter program we help battle overpopulation by spaying/neutering nearly 4,000 animals each year. We also have humane agents on staff who work tirelessly to protect the animals in our community from cruel or neglectful circumstances.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is also the only organization in the community that handles all types of animals. Yes, we do primarily dog, cat and rabbit adoptions, but we also work with all kinds of animals such as farm animals, small pets and reptiles, exotic animals such as bears or alligators, birds and more.
Many believe our organization is affiliated with other humane societies in the community or nationally, but the Humane Society of Greater Dayton is actual a single-entity nonprofit organization. We receive no funding from other organizations or through the government. Every dollar raised goes to help the programs and services we offer to the Miami Valley and every dollar stays in our community.
We are a four-star Charity Navigator charity as well as a Platinum Guidestar charity. Both of these honors are the highest a charity can be and demonstrate that we are good stewards and remain transparent in how we spend all funding we receive. In addition, in 2017 we were honored to receive the BBB Eclipse Integrity Award, which also demonstrates the impact we have had and continue to have as a leader in animal welfare for our community.
If you have not been to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton for awhile, we would love to have you stop in and see us! We have some very exciting things happening every day at our shelter and would love for you to be part of our HSGD family!
