Emergency Adoption Event


Calgary Humane Society is currently over capacity for all animals and therefore calling for an Emergency Adoption Event taking place Wednesday July 8th – Sunday July 12th at 4455 110 Avenue SE, with select animals available for minimum donations (see below).

This is an all-hands-on-deck emergency situation as the shelter resources are being drained at an astonishing rate due to unforeseeable circumstances and we require assistance on a multi-dimensional scale. Ultimately, adopting animals into forever homes will help in the biggest way, but there are other ways to help if you are unable to adopt:

  1. Donating to Calgary Humane Society will directly assist our staff in providing the care necessary for the animals in our possession. All donations, no matter how big or small can make the difference in the life of an animal. Please donate today and be the difference for an animal.
  2. Our wishlist items are constantly being updated at this time for high need items. Our resources are being depleted very quickly as we provide the best care for the multitude of animals in the shelter. Donating items from our wishlist will assist greatly in providing for these animals. Click here to view our wishlist.
  3. Our staff are working at their maximum capability to provide specialized care but we can use a few extra hands to help with the workload. If you are able to lend some time to Calgary Humane Society, please apply to be a volunteer.
  4. Our foster parents provide a safe home for our animals while they are waiting for their turn to find a forever home. If you and your family are ready to become a short term safe-house for our animals, please consider applying to be a foster parent.

Thank you for all of your support!
