Numerous radio stations in our community are airing ads through December 23 against a national humane group. These advertisements are not aimed at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. However, we do want to clear up any confusion these ads may have caused.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is a single-entity 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency. This means we are not affiliated with any local, state or national organization. We receive no government funds either. All of our funding for all of our programs and services come from donations by individuals, companies and grants.
Commercial may cause confusion for local Humane Society
Many assume humane societies all across the country are affiliated with or are chapters of a national, or umbrella, organization. This is not true. Like the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, most are individual nonprofits not affiliated with any larger group.
The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is the area's largest, most-established no-kill animal welfare agency in the Miami Valley. We have been helping animals in our community since 1902 and help nearly 2,000 animals find forever homes every year.
The Giving Season
December is the most important time of year for the animals at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. Thus, ads like this hurt local organization and discourage people from giving to help local animals.
If you have questions or concerns regarding these radio advertisements, please don't hesitate in e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
When you donate to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, your donations stay in the Miami Valley and give local animals a second chance!
