November Cat Adoption Event

Adoption Event Ends Early

THANK'S to ALL of YOUR SUPPORT during our Adoption Event, we have been able to help 344 animals find forever homes since November 1st! And 255 of those were cats - WOW! We are so grateful for the amazing response we received during our event, and are happy to report we are no longer over capacity! We have decided to end our November Adoption Event as of today and Calgary Humane Society will honour adoption event pricing for anyone who had previously come in and made arrangements to adopt. The animals and us thank you!

CHS Alum Ash

CHS Alum, Ash

This is our 2 year old boy Ash that we got as a kitten from the CHS. He’s a little chubby (20 lbs) and weighs just as much as one of our dogs. His absolute favorite thing is running around outside in his little pink harness. He’s a bundle of energy and we are so glad that the Humane Society gave us the opportunity to bring him into our family. Thank you for everything you guys do.

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.
