Together, We Can Help Animals Thrive

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is in the mission of saving lives, but we can’t do this without your help! Through donating, volunteering, fostering, and more, you can be an advocate for the homeless animals right here in our community! Together, we can make a huge impact!

Get Involved


Have you ever thought about becoming a hero to an animal in need, saving a life, or making a difference in your community? Donating to the Humans Society of Greater Dayton is an opportunity to do all three!


Whether it’s hands-on activities with our pets, clerical support, or events and education participation, we have a place for you.

Foster a Pet

Open your home as a foster family. Give an animal a safe, loving temporary home with one-on-one care until that pet is ready for adoption.

Report Animal Cruelty

Help us stop the suffering. We investigate all signs of cruelty, neglect, and abuse against all animals.


Stock up on your pet supplies while supporting homeless animals in our online store!

Company Involvement

Every year, businesses both big and small work with the Humane Society of Greater Dayton to help animals and further our mission through our many levels of sponsorship.


A Community Where All Animals Are Valued

“We adopted Bob from the MeowZa Cat Boutique at the Dayton Mall. Bob was so scared and shy that we were nervous that he may not ever warm up to us if we brought him home. The first several weeks were tough. Bob hid from us in any tight and tiny space he could find in our home. The support we got from the staff at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton really helped us navigate the transition and brought us comfort. Now, as I write this, Bob is cozied up next to me on the couch. He has become the most loving and playful cat! His hobbies include midnight zooming around the house and devouring shrimp-flavored cat treats. We are so happy to have Bob in our little family. Now, we can’t imagine our lives without him!”
