Here are Resources to help you promote this exciting time for both the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and the people and pets within the Miami Valley! 

2015 10 02 00.29.41  

1. High-Volume Spay/Neuter Clinic 

Problem 

With more than 50,000 stray cats in our community, the 4,000 we spay/neuter each year is only a drop in the bucket in tackling the pet overpopulation problem

Vision

Create a no-kill community where cats and dogs are not euthanized due to overpopulation

Solution

Create a high-volume spay/neuter facility where we can alter 20,000 animals each year. This increase can help lower cat overpopulation in a humane way

2. Full-Service Animal Hospital

Problem

There is currently no full-service animal hospitals within the City of Dayton making caring for a pet more difficult for families in need. Plus, the Humane Society pay thousands to offsite vets to care for animals in emergency situations

Vision

Provide high-quality medical care to underserved families within our community

Solution

Build a full-service animal hospital where we can offer veterinarian services on a sliding scale and keep healthy pets in their forever homes

 


2015 10 02 09.24.53

3. Cruelty/Neglect Resources

Problem

With limited space, at our current shelter, we must rent emergency housing for animals who come in as part of large cruelty cases

Vision

Give proper shelter and equipment to our cruelty/neglect department to allow them to assist all types of animals who have been abused

Solution

Build a barn onsite and purchase a mobile emergency unit to improve the efficiency of our cruelty/neglect department


2015 09 30 02.23.14

4. Adoption Center & Boarding

Problem

With our current facility many of our cages are taken up by animals not yet available for adoption, which limits the animals we can help

Vision

Provide an upscale and inviting environment for people to find and adopt new pets or board their pets while away

Solution

Build an adoption facility at a second location that is in a high-traffic area and can help gain exposure for the pets in our care while also allowing for additional earned revenue via boarding services

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!

Sincerely,

Brian Weltge
President & CEO

Did you know the Humane Society of Greater Dayton works with several local veterinary offices through the Miami Valley Veterinary Medicine Association (MVVMA) voucher program? 


In honor of World Spay Day, for a one-day-only event, our participating veterinary offices are lifting the income level restrictions and have graciously agreed to offer spay/neuter surgeries to everyone participating in the program at the discounted rates.

To register, you must pre-pay to purchase your voucher at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton during regular business hours only on Tuesday, February 28, 2017, from 1 to 6 p.m.

This low-cost voucher program is designed to assist people who are financially unable to use the preferred services of a local veterinarian for uncomplicated (routine) spay and neuter services. Any form of government or financial aid is acceptable as proof of need.

This program is made possible by the participating local veterinarians who are providing their surgical skills and subsidizing your pet’s surgery (at the veterinarian’s expense) to assist the HSGD in their efforts to control pet population issues in our community.

The spay/neuter voucher fee includes a physical exam, the anesthesia, surgical procedure, recovery, 3 days of post-operative pain medication, and a follow-up visit for suture removal. The  fee is due at the time of services- NO payment arrangements will be made.  The fee is non-refundable unless your pet is deemed unacceptable for anesthesia by a participating veterinarian- the $15 examination fee is non-refundable without exception. Not included in the fee is treatment for fleas or other parasites (if fleas or evidence is found on your pet), optional monitoring (pulse oximetry, blood pressure), pre-surgical bloodwork, fluid therapy, overnight hospital stay, or fees for heat/pregnancy/pyometra/hernia repair/retained testicles or conditions that are not evident on examination.

The only additional fee may be if one of the vet clinics requires certain vaccinations for your pet prior to surgery. Please contact each vet clinic beforehand to see what requirements they have. All vet clinics vary. 

During the pre-surgical exam, findings that may result in additional charges to you will be discussed.  With all surgery and general anesthesia are associated risks including the possibility of death. Treatment associated with complications during and/or following surgery will be your financial responsibility.

It is important to note that this spay/neuter procedure is not the only preventive care needed to provide for your pet’s health and well-being. The doctor will discuss with you the need for annual vaccines, heartworm and intestinal parasite screening, flea prevention/treatment, and heartworm prevention in addition to any physical exam findings that may impact your pet’s health or surgical outcome. Vaccinations are strongly recommended and may be required by participating veterinarians at additional cost. You are responsible for all additional treatment costs deemed necessary by the veterinarian. When scheduling your appointment, please ask what is required by the veterinarian.

Voucher Pricing:

  • Canine Neuter (all weights) - $75
  • Canine Spay (50 pounds and lower) - $90
  • Canine Spay (More than 50 pounds) - $115

What Makes Them Special?
Thumper is an adorable little guy that came to our shelter along with many other bunnies after their owner passed away. He's neutered and is quite a tidy fellow with his litter box habits. He's currently in foster care and his foster tells us he's very social, likes to cuddle and really enjoys the times he gets to run and play. His diet consists of timothy hay, pellets and fresh greens daily. His favorite treat? A slice of banana will excite him enough to do a happy dance. Would you like to meet Thumper and see if he's the bunny for you or your family? Please submit a small animal adoption application and let us schedule a time for you to meet him at our shelter. We're certain he'll steal your heart.

Sarsaparilla

Sarsaparilla
Sarsaparilla

Age: 4-years-old
Type: Hound/Shepherd mix
Sex: Female

What Makes Them Special?
This sweetheart is Sarsaparilla (a.k.a."Sassy"). She came all the way from a Kentucky shelter to find her forever home! She is a very sweet girl who would make a great addition to any home! She is peppy enough to spend time playing or go on a nice long walk, but calm enough to hang out and relax at home. She is very sweet and pretty calm so would make a great companion to someone looking for an amazing girl to add to their heart and home! She goes to training through the S.T.A.R.T. training program so will receive two free classes with her adoption to maintain and continue training. She has gone to our pet therapy program (where we visit nursing homes and allow them to interact with the dogs), and our book buddies program (where we take dogs to elementary schools to let them read to and interact with the dogs) and she has done very well in those situations! She LOVES snuggling close to you, getting belly rubs, and giving you lots of kisses. Sassy will need to be the only pet in the home as she doesn't get along well with cats or most other dogs. If you think Sarsaparilla would be the perfect addition to your home, come on in, fill out an application, and spend some time with her!
