DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is celebrating the number of animals it saved in 2018.
The organization hosted a luncheon Thursday at the Steam Plant. They looked back on events and programs that helped with animal welfare last year and talked about the future.
The CEO says the changes implemented across multiple organizations in the past year, including the Humane Society, has helped the community grow.
“What a lot of people don’t realize is that, because of all the changes and because of all the great support, we have set our community up to be a no-kill community in 2019, the first time in our history, which is very exciting for anyone who loves animals,” says Brian Weltge, President and CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton.
A no-kill community bans euthanasia at shelters as a way to make space for other animals.
