HSGD Helps National Group Save Beagles

By: The Humane Society of Greater Dayton

Recently, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton took in 4 adult beagles along with 8 beagle puppies in an effort to help the Humane Society of the United States rescue animals that had been relinquished from a facility which breeds animals for animal testing.

Before being rescued, these animals were living in confined and unsanitary conditions with little to no socialization with humans. They had not had any testing done to them prior to being rescued.

“We are happy any time we can partner with a group to help save animals in need,” said Brian Weltge, President & CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. “The dogs were very scared and confused when they first arrived to our shelter, but they have really opened up with our fosters and our staff and are doing so much better now that they are experiencing proper care and receiving lots of love.”


Where to Adopt

One of the four adult beagles has already found a forever home and the other are or soon will be available for adoption at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. The 8 beagle puppies have been in a foster home being socialized and care for. They will be available for adoption this Saturday and Sunday during the PetSmart National Adoption Weekend. Four will be available on Saturday, July 16 from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Petsmart at 2028 Miamisburg Centerville Road. The other four beagle puppies will be available on Sunday, July 17 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Petsmart on 4333 Feedwire Road in Dayton.

If you are interested in adopting any of these animals, visit www.hsdayton.org/adopt and fill out an adoption application today. For the adult dogs that are currently available for adoption, you can stop into our main shelter and visit them in person Tuesday through Friday from 1 to 6 p.m. or Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m.


With approximately 4,000 animals being removed from this facility, we hope to work with HSUS to transfer more animals to our shelter, but need to first find homes for those in our care. If you want to help, but can’t adopt at this time, please considering fostering. The Humane Society of Greater Dayton are always in need of foster families to temporarily house animals for us. This helps us to free up cage space so that we can take in more animals and ultimately find more animals forever homes.
