Brian Weltge, Executive Director, (937) 268-7387


Humane Society of Greater Dayton’s humane agents are the only licensed agents in Montgomery County responsible for investigating reports of animal cruelty, neglect and abandonment. In 2023, HSGD’s humane agents responded to 4,628 calls from concerned citizens, investigated 521 cases and seized 324 farm or domesticated animals. Often, these humane cases involved large farm animals, such as horses, pigs, sheep, etc. Transporting these sometimes sick or injured animals takes specialized care. Funds were used to purchase an animal trailer to transport farm animals for needed care and rehabilitation before adoption. The trailer also will be used in the rescue of large hoarding cases of domesticated animals and during community disasters to help ensure displaced or injured pets are reunited with their families.
