It's Time to UnLEASH the Change!


Dear Friends,

Since the Humane Society of Greater Dayton opened its doors in 1902, it has been our goal to improve the lives of animals and people within our community. We have accomplished many milestones throughout the years and in more recent times we have become a no-kill facility.

We have implemented many proactive programs such as Trap-Neuter-Return to effectively and ethically decrease the number of free-roaming cats; and expanded adoption locations including our own cat adoption store, the MeowZa Cat Boutique at the Dayton Mall.

Our organization is on the forefront of addressing animal-related issues occurring within the Miami Valley. Over the years, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton has seen an ever-increasing need to:

  • Tackle our community pet overpopulation
  • Expand our ability to care for animals who are abused
  • Provide more homes for pets in need
  • Assist struggling families in taking better care of their pets

As many of you know, our current facility is at capacity and we are challenged by a growing need to help more animals. For the past year, we’ve been developing a dynamic strategic plan to further address our
community’s needs.

I am delighted to share the Humane Society of Greater Dayton will be working with our community and our partners to transform animal welfare in the Miami Valley. This means more spay/neuters, more help for abused and neglected animals, more adoptions and more help for struggling families trying to care for their furry family members.

It’s time to UnLEASH the Change!

Over the next few months we will be sharing with you our long-term vision for transforming animal welfare within the Miami Valley. Please see the conceptual images we have developed. We are excited to work with you to make this vision a reality! Join us and be part of the change!
