Did You Know?

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is a nonprofit organization supported entirely by the generous contributions of the community. We have served Montgomery County for more than 100 years and are the oldest, most established animal-wellness center in the area.

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is committed to helping lost, abandoned and homeless animals, and to providing Dayton’s families with the resources to become loving, lifelong pet owners.
