Connecting Lives Since 1922

From our earliest beginning, Calgary Humane Society was more than a shelter. As Calgary’s first-established animal welfare organization, connecting lives of animals and people while providing essential animal services to the community remains our central priority.

Today, Calgary Humane Society (CHS) shelters more than 5,000 homeless animals each year. In 1922 we set out to help as many animals as we can and will continue to do so until we live in a world where we are no longer needed. By fostering the values of respect, compassion, teamwork and integrity, Calgary Humane Society is committed to creating a better tomorrow through education and collaboration.
