The Humane Educational Society has made the difficult decision to postpone our largest annual fundraiser, Rescues on the Runway. This event is being rescheduled for Saturday, September 5th. Of this year. Significant funds are raised during this event to provide shelter, food and medical care for the animals entrusted to our shelter.

Executive Director Phil Snyder stated, “We cannot place the needs of our animals above the health concerns of our community, however this decision greatly affects our ability to provide for the homeless pets in Hamilton County. We are losing an estimated $100,000 which is needed to support our badly needed services and programs at this critical time. With so many needs out there, we hope our donors and the community at large will also respond to the needs of our animals.”  

Anyone who has purchased tickets to Rescues on the Runway, but cannot make the rescheduled date should contact Taylor Hixson at We will offer the option for a refund through May 28th, 2020, or if you generously choose to donate the ticket amount to help us save more dogs and cats during this trying time contact Taylor Hixson for a donation receipt.

The Humane Educational Society expects to see an increase in animal intake and a decrease in adoptions during this time of uncertainty. COVID-19 will likely take its toll on the animals as well. Crucial funds will be lost due to the postponement of our largest annual fundraiser. If you would like to make a donation to the Humane Educational Society to help us continue our life saving work of animals, you can do so at
