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!

Giving Tuesday

This Giving Tuesday, Calgary Humane Society is kicking off the start to our Virtual Stuff a Pooch Pad! Every year we collect donations of much needed items for the animals at the shelter and fill one of our pooch pads in our adoptions area. This year we're giving people who are unable to make it down to the shelter between December 5th and 22nd an opportunity to donate online to help us reach our goal.  

Don't take our word for it

Connecting lives since 1922

Calgary Humane Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was incorporated in 1922.
