Adopters: We Need Your Help!

HW Facebook cover 2016

Adopters, We need your help to help more animals!

Exciting news! The Humane Society of Greater Dayton has a chance to win $100,000, but we need your help!


What do we need from you? It’s simple: share your story of love! The Petco Foundation wants to know how the love of your adopted pet has changed your life for the better. 


Because if you’ve ever shared your life with a pet, you know: love changes everything. It changes your mornings. It changes your routine. It changes your perspective. Tell the Petco Foundation how your pet brings more joy to your life each day, and how their love changed your life, big or small, and made it better. That’s why the Petco Foundation and this year’s Holiday Wishes campaign are All for Love. 


By submitting your adoption story and giving us the opportunity to participate in this year’s campaign, we have the chance to receive up to $100,000 in grants to continue doing what we do best – saving lives. 


And get this: if our organization is selected to receive the $100,000 grand prize as a result of your story submission, you will receive a $1,000 Petco gift card! 


If you adopted your pet through us, please consider submitting your story (500 words max) along with photos and/or video of your pet. Be sure to talk about how your pet has changed your life and how we helped you find each other!

The deadline to submit your story and nominate us for the Holiday Wishes grant is October 15, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. CST. There is a limited number of submissions guaranteed to be reviewed so please visit to get started as soon as poosible. 


Also, be sure to include the contact information below on  your submission form to ensure that we can respond to Petco Foundation if your story is selected as a finalist! Please include:


Thank you for giving a loving home to one of our amazing animals and thank you for taking the time to share your story of love! The love you have for your pet will help us help more animals experience the same love in their own forever homes!
