Our Mission

Serving the community and pets of Montgomery County through effective public safety, humane animal welfare, and connecting pets to forever homes.

Our Vision

Enriching the lives of pets and people in our community.


The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center is a 24,000-square-foot open admission companion animal shelter. As part of our service to the citizens of Montgomery County, our agency takes in thousands of dogs each year. In addition to direct adoptions, the Animal Resource Center, part of the Dayton Alliance for Companion Animals, works with the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and the SICSA Pet Adoption Center along with many placement partners to find homes for as many animals as possible.
