Low on Dog Space

Low on Dog Space

Calgary Humane Society is announcing that we have regrettably run out of shelter space for dogs. We are an open-admissions shelter and we never turn an animal away, however, due to our current lack of space we require that all surrenders call our Admissions department at (403)205-4455 to ensure we have space.

Don't take our word for it

CHS Alum, Lilly

She has been with us since February 2014. She is 100% part of the family and we all adore her. In fact I wonder at times if any cat has ever been loved so much! We will be moving to a new home soon and she is looking forward to having way more room to run around in. Thank you again so much for completing our family.

Connecting lives since 1922

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