You drive, they thrive! Hop into a vehicle at one of Jeff Schmitt Auto Group’s seven locations and when you do you can help homeless animals at the same time! 

From February 1st through March 31st, Jeff Schmitt Auto Group in partnership with Ally will donate $50 to benefit the animals at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton for every test drive taken at any of their seven locations.  

“Last year, we were able to raise $10,000 for the animals at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton through this test-drive campaign,” said Jay Schmitt, President of Jeff Schmitt Auto Group. “We couldn’t be more excited to do it again and continue to make an impact for this amazing cause.” 

To sweeten the deal, Jeff Schmitt Auto Group and Ally will donate an additional $50 to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton for every vehicle financed as a result of the test drive through the dealerships and Ally for the duration of the campaign.   

“We are proud to be partnering with Jeff Schmitt Auto Group to make such a huge impact,” said Brian Weltge, President and CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. “As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization we rely solely on donations to fund all of our programs and services, so working with Jeff Schmitt Auto Group through this campaign is helping to provide medical care, nourishing food and ultimately forever homes to so many homeless animals in the Miami Valley.”

People can go to any of Jeff Schmitt Auto Group’s seven locations to test drive a vehicle including:
