We Are Their Voice

Our goal is to be the ones who always speak up for the cause of animal welfare. We want all of Dayton to add their voices to ours – so we can all be advocates for animal care in our community.


Whether it’s hands-on activities with our pets, clerical support, or events and education participation, we have a place for you.

Foster a Pet

Open your home as a foster family. Give an animal a safe, loving temporary home with one-on-one care until that pet is ready for adoption.

Report Animal Cruelty

Help us stop the suffering. We investigate all signs of cruelty, neglect, and abuse against all animals.
