Where Do Your Funds Go



Since 1902, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton has been working to improve the lives of animals within the Miami Valley. To put that in perspective, before the Wright Brothers invented flight or before Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Hawaii and Alaska were officially states, our organization was here in the community supporting pets and pet owners! 


As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Humane Society of Greater Dayton receives no government funding and is not affiliated with any other animal welfare organization on a local, state or national level. This means we rely 100% on individuals companies and grants to fund all of our programs and services. This is why events such as Furry Skurry are so important to our overall mission! It helps us help more animals in need! 


In 2023, our organization had a record-breaking year! Last year we:

  • Found homes for 2,453 animals (including cats, dogs, rabbits, farm animals, reptiles, birds, and more).
  • Provided spay or neuter surgeries to 7,972 animals
  • Examined 4,187 animals through our award-winning veterinary hospital
  • Investigated 424 cases of cruelty and neglect toward all types of animals within Montgomery County
  • Built 250 cat shelters to keep community cats safe from harsh weather
  • Provided 350 free or low-cost microchips to the community through microchipping events


When you register for Furry Skurry or fundraise for the event, 100% of the money you raise stays in our community to help animals in our care!
