What Your Donation Does

The funds that we need to raise to change the lives of these animals don’t come from registration fees. They come from the donations collected by our selfless walkers and runners. Fundraising is as integral to this event as the walk or run itself.  




 A donation, at any level, helps provide food, shelter and veterinary care to our pets:

  • $25 can provide life-saving vaccinations for 2 homeless animals.
  • $50 can provide for for 6 rabbits for one week.
  • $100 can provide micro-chips for 15 animals.
  • $250 can provide spay/neuter surgeries for 4 pet residents.

Did You Know?

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is:

  • The largest no-kill animal welfare agency
  • The only agency to care for all types of animals
  • The only agency with a full-time humane agent investigating cruelty and neglect
  • The longest-serving agency helping animals since 1902
  • Solely funded by individuals, corporations and grants
