CHS Alum Cash

CHS Alum, Cash

Just wanted to give you an update on Cash, who came home with us in September last year. He has settled in nicely at our home. He runs about 5 km everyday and has grown bigger and stronger because of it. He is so smart and everyone who meets him tells us how lucky we are to have him! And we agree and think that Cash likes having us as his people!!

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.
