UnLEASH The Change: Our Vision for the Future

2015 10 02 00.29.41  

1. High-Volume Spay/Neuter Clinic 

Problem 

With more than 50,000 stray cats in our community, the 4,000 we spay/neuter each year is only a drop in the bucket in tackling the pet overpopulation problem

Vision

Create a no-kill community where cats and dogs are not euthanized due to overpopulation

Solution

Create a high-volume spay/neuter facility where we can alter 20,000 animals each year. This increase can help lower cat overpopulation in a humane way

2. Full-Service Animal Hospital

Problem

There is currently no full-service animal hospitals within the City of Dayton making caring for a pet more difficult for families in need. Plus, the Humane Society pay thousands to offsite vets to care for animals in emergency situations

Vision

Provide high-quality medical care to underserved families within our community

Solution

Build a full-service animal hospital where we can offer veterinarian services on a sliding scale and keep healthy pets in their forever homes

3. Cruelty/Neglect Resources

Problem

With limited space, at our current shelter, we must rent emergency housing for animals who come in as part of large cruelty cases

Vision

Give proper shelter and equipment to our cruelty/neglect department to allow them to assist all types of animals who have been abused

Solution

Build a barn onsite and purchase a mobile emergency unit to improve the efficiency of our cruelty/neglect department

4. Adoption Center & Boarding

Problem

With our current facility many of our cages are taken up by animals not yet available for adoption, which limits the animals we can help

Vision

Provide an upscale and inviting environment for people to find and adopt new pets or board their pets while away

Solution

Build an adoption facility at a second location that is in a high-traffic area and can help gain exposure for the pets in our care while also allowing for additional earned revenue via boarding services

Age: 4 1/2 years old
Type: Dwarf/American
Sex: Male

What Makes Them Special?
Thumper is an adorable little guy that came to our shelter along with many other bunnies after their owner passed away. He's neutered and is quite a tidy fellow with his litter box habits. He's currently in foster care and his foster tells us he's very social, likes to cuddle and really enjoys the times he gets to run and play. His diet consists of timothy hay, pellets and fresh greens daily. His favorite treat? A slice of banana will excite him enough to do a happy dance. Would you like to meet Thumper and see if he's the bunny for you or your family? Please submit a small animal adoption application and let us schedule a time for you to meet him at our shelter. We're certain he'll steal your heart.

Sarsaparilla

Sarsaparilla

Age: 4-years-old
Type: Hound/Shepherd mix
Sex: Female

What Makes Them Special?
This sweetheart is Sarsaparilla (a.k.a."Sassy"). She came all the way from a Kentucky shelter to find her forever home! She is a very sweet girl who would make a great addition to any home! She is peppy enough to spend time playing or go on a nice long walk, but calm enough to hang out and relax at home. She is very sweet and pretty calm so would make a great companion to someone looking for an amazing girl to add to their heart and home! She goes to training through the S.T.A.R.T. training program so will receive two free classes with her adoption to maintain and continue training. She has gone to our pet therapy program (where we visit nursing homes and allow them to interact with the dogs), and our book buddies program (where we take dogs to elementary schools to let them read to and interact with the dogs) and she has done very well in those situations! She LOVES snuggling close to you, getting belly rubs, and giving you lots of kisses. Sassy will need to be the only pet in the home as she doesn't get along well with cats or most other dogs. If you think Sarsaparilla would be the perfect addition to your home, come on in, fill out an application, and spend some time with her!
