CHS Alum Patch

CHS Alum, Patch

Patch joined our family in February after 217 long days of waiting. He has fit right into our family and is the friendliest, happiest dog. He loves to keep us company whenever he can, and especially loves car rides, camping, canoeing, and leading the way on hikes! We are so lucky to get to share our lives with such an awesome guy.

Connecting lives since 1922

Calgary Humane Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was incorporated in 1922. At that time, the Society’s mandate included the protection of children, homeless people as well as animals. Today, Calgary Humane Society is the only organization providing a service under the Animal Protection Act in Calgary. Calgary Humane Society continues to work for the animals with the aim of preventing and suppressing cruelty and sheltering more than 6,000 homeless animals each years.

A Tribute to Gus the Gecko

A Tribute to Gus the Gecko
