Negative Radio Ads - NOT About Humane Society of Greater Dayton

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

Fox 45 and ABC 22 ran a story about this. Click here for information. 
 
Additional Information
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.
