Almost everyone was very helpful, knowledgeable, and very nice. However, I do not believe that their vet (at least one of them) is qualified. I adopted a dog that had not had his shots, immunizations, or neuter, so I had all of those things done with a vet I had never used. That vet had no problem with any of these things and said he was amazing. I then took him to Sicsa so he could be adopted by a good family and he passed the behavior test and the staff really liked him. However, the vet there said he tried to bite her when she was trying to get a blood sample and this disqualified him for admission into the program. I have to say, that is impossible. He has never even hinted at biting anyone, and the other vet had no problem. My advice is that if you run a good shelter like this one, you should have a staffed vet that has the ability to work with animals. What gained them 5 stars, is that the staff cared so much that they helped me find another shelter elsewhere for him, which was above and beyond and showed that they really do care about animals.

I loved adopting from SICSA! The staff was so helpful and kind, and it is obvious the animals are well cared for. The facility was very clean and there are so many programs that can help you (and children) to be better pet owners. I also like the fact that they take animals to pet events, and bring them into different environments. Had it not been for this kind of "Thinking Outside the Box"-- I wouldn't have found my pup. I actually saw him twice in the shelter, barking loudly & acting a fool... but he was an entirely different dog outside of the shelter, and has remained so. SICSA also does a lot of online updates and media, which helps spread the word throughout the community. Thanks to all the staff for helping me find my little guy. I just wish I could adopt them all!
I have been to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and every time I have been there the animals pens were always clean! All the animals looked healthy too! And if I need a question about an animal there was always someone there to help me out. This is truely a place that cares about the animals health, safety, and welbeing. I would recommend Humane Society of Greater Dayton to anyone who is looking to add a furry friend on to your family.Sincerely, Rebecca Moeller
