One of the best ways you can support Calgary Humane Society is by donating pet supplies. The following items are highly in-demand at CHS and we are happy to accept donations of these items at any time. Donations must be clean and in usable condition.
- Lightly-used dog beds
- Bed sheets (not fitted sheets)
- Non-feather duvets
- Exotic animal supplies
- Cat beds
- Cat trees
- Puppy pads
If you have pet supplies you’d like to donate but you aren’t sure if they’re useful or appropriate, please contact us at email@example.com.
Gift cards are another helpful way you can support Calgary Humane Society. We appreciate donations of gift cards from the following types of stores:
We use these to purchase fruit and veggies for our rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and exotic animals who have special dietary needs.
Large retail stores like Walmart, Canadian Tire and Superstore
We use these to purchase miscellaneous supplies like weigh scales, batteries, and shelter equipment.
Pet supply stores
These are particularly helpful for foster parents whose animals require crickets and worms for their meals. Also, these stores can provide specialty items like heat lamps for reptiles or water pumps for aquariums that aren’t available elsewhere.
Bequests / Gift in Will
Making a gift through your will, or another planned giving avenue, is a wonderful way to support animal welfare in Calgary. A gift through your will can enable you to have the larger impact of a more significant gift, without impacting your current financial situation.
Please consult your personal legal and financial advisors concerning the details and benefits of making gifts through your will or estate plan to Calgary Humane Society. To learn more, contact us.
