You Drive They Thrive: Dayton Humane Society


We’re Doing It Again!

Our two-month long donation drive to raise money for the Humane Society is happening once again. With your help and lots of new vehicle test drives, we are hoping to raise another $10,000 to help our furry friends at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton in 2024!

Through our partnership with Ally Bank, the money from the You Drive They Thrive campaign will directly help provide medical care, nourishing food, and ultimately forever homes to so many homeless animals in the Miami Valley.

A Few Words from Jay Schmitt

“As someone who personally has adopted two wonderful cats from the Humane Society of Greater Dayton I have witnessed first-hand the impact this organization has on the people and pets in our community.”

“It is always such an honor to work with them on this campaign. Thanks to the support of our community who came out to test drive cars at our seven dealerships we are proud to provide this donation to further the Humane Society of Greater Dayton’s mission and lifesaving work.”
