How to Adopt
CALGARY HUMANE SOCIETY’S ONLINE ADOPTION PROCESS
Updated March 12, 2021
If you wish to come in for a visit and potentially adopt a new pet at the Calgary Humane Society, please be advised that an appointment is required to do so. Visitors and potential adopters will be asked to access the online booking system to view available days and times. Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions and the highly transmittable variants, a maximum of one adult member per household are permitted to attend an appointment. This helps us to keep our foot traffic to a minimum and keep our staff and volunteers safe.
Our calendar has been recently updated to offer morning time slots to accommodate more daily appointments and shorten wait times. Appointments can only be booked up to seven days in advance. If there are no times available within the next seven-day period, that means we are fully booked for the species you are attempting to book for.
On the day of your appointment, we ask that you bring a wishlist of the animals you would like to meet based on who is available on our website on that day. Be aware that if there were appointments before yours (earlier in the day), there is a chance that the animal/s you are interested in are already on hold or have been adopted.
If you have booked an appointment and are unable to make it, please cancel your appointment as a courtesy to other visitors and adopters. Every no-show is a missed opportunity for an animal to be adopted. If you are experiencing issues cancelling your appointment online, please call or email the Adoptions team for assistance at (403) 205-4455, extension 6503 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there is a specific animal you are wishing to meet but there are no available times to select, please check back frequently as cancellations occur throughout the day.
In preparation of your appointment, please review the COVID-19 Screening Questions that you will be required to answer the day of your appointment.
