We are a non-profit agency which relies 100% on donations from foundations and individual donors. We receive no government or national humane society support.

Animal cruelty and neglect investigations are conducted by our Humane Officer. If you witness an animal being abused or neglected or if you just think something isn't right please call us and file a report. All reports are confidential. If you call, you just might save a life! Some of our pets had been impounded by our Humane Officer and have gone on to be adopted into loving homes. One phone call can make a real difference in an animal's life.

Want to help unwanted pets, but aren't able to adopt? Consider volunteering! We are always in need of dependable, hard-working volunteers for various postions. Call 268-PETS for more information.
Some positions include:
Socializing and grooming to make the animals more adoptable.
Helping out at Offsite Adoptions - these are mostly weekends and involve traveling to different offsite locations and helping with adoptions, preparing/transport of the animals, and educating the public about our shelter.

Who We Are

Our vision is "Great homes for great pets!". We cooperate with other agencies to develop initiatives that have the greatest impact towards reduction of unwanted animals. If you or your group wants to help with our vision, please email us.

Adopting a friend

All animals have been vet checked, microchipped and spayed/neutered.

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton follows a variable pricing model for adoption fees. Adoption fees for dogs range from $75 to $300. Cat adoption fees range from $45 to $75.
