In support of the Facility Enhancement Project

In 2022, Calgary Humane Society will celebrate its 100th birthday and completion of our Facility Enhancement Project!

To celebrate this historical milestone, we have teamed up with Alberta company, Mural Mosaic, to create a custom piece of wall art which will be proudly displayed in the newly renovated reception area. We are thrilled to offer this unique opportunity to our community to help support our Facility Enhancement Project.

The Facility Enhancement Project will create new and improved spaces for animals in shelter as they wait to find their forever family. The $100 for 100 Community Mosaic campaign is your opportunity to be a part of this transformational project!

As a donor to the campaign, your gift will secure a place in history in our shelter. Each $100 donation, will become a laser edited photograph (of your choosing), printed and embedded on a 4 inch x 4 inch tile within the mosaic.

You, or who you gift to, will also receive a keepsake (available after the mosaic’s completion in 2022) and link to view your spot through the online interactive mosaic!

* See below for information on how to send a tile as a gift

 

Each square on the mosaic represents four 4 inch x 4 inch tiles which means the final piece will be comprised of over 4,500 tiles! Donors have the option to ‘upgrade’ their tile, increasing the size of the photo and elevating impact. To learn more about upgrading a tile, please email communitymural@calgaryhumane.ca

 

Gifting Mosaic Tiles – The perfect gift for any animal lover!

Mosaic tiles make an incredible and unique holiday gift! Purchase a tile for a loved one, a close friend, as a recognition gift for employees, or just give a gift to yourself!

As a donor, you will be emailed a gift certificate (illustrated below) that you can print and deliver to your designate. Giffee’s will also receive the photo keepsake upon the mosaic’s completion in 2022!

 

Availability and Purchasing

Tiles are available in a limited quantity and can be purchased for $100 each with proceeds supporting the Facility Enhancement Project. All gifts are100% tax receiptible!

 

Donating to the Community mosaic campaign is easy!

  • Simply visit our donation page and select the number of tiles you wish to purchase.
  • Once your donation is approved keep an eye on your inbox for your tax receipt and next steps on photograph submission.
  • Once your photographs are submitted, please be aware it may take up to twelve weeks for your image to appear on the interactive website. We encourage you to check back often so you can watch as the tiles fill and the mosaic comes to life.
  • Please note that due to the living nature of this art piece, tile locations are not finite and could be moved at any time based on the artist’s discretion. Not to worry! We will be sure to include your tile’s final location with your keepsake gift.
  • Tiles for the Community Mosaic will be available while quantities last. Once the tiles are sold, construction of the mosaic will begin.

 

Progress so far!

Images have already been added to the interactive mosaic! To date, we have received a beautiful array of species including: cats, dogs, rabbits, parrots, budgies, bearded dragons, snakes, geckos, horses, and even a cow!

Can you spot them all on the interactive mosaic?!
