Host a party and help provide nutritious meals to the animals at Calgary Humane Society.

Party With A Purpose is Calgary Humane Society’s newest signature event and you’re invited!

This year, supporters all over Calgary and the surrounding area are partying to help feed the animals at Calgary Humane Society.

Did you know that we feed over 99,000 cups of cat and dog food annually? That’s roughly 44,170 pounds of food, or the same weight as nearly 5.3 adult hippos!

Because we are an open admission shelter, we never turn an animal away. Therefore, each animal that comes through our door is unique: some require medical attention and some don’t, some require behaviour support and some don’t. However, the one thing that each and every animal who comes to us needs is a nutritious bowl of food.

We invite you to host your friends, family, and neighbours and Party With A Purpose!



Host your party in August 2019

Sign up opens soon!

How it works:

Step 1: Register Your Event

It’s easy to become a host. Once registration is open, sign up online and create your party page.

Get started by thinking of the type of party you would like to host, and where the event will take place. A Party With A Purpose can be any type of event you want!

Pick one of the three Party With A Purpose days (August 17th, 18th, or 19th), decide what time you want your party to start and then register your event online. From there follow the below steps to create your host fundraising page, send invitations to your friends and family, collect donations, and host a successful Party With A Purpose!

Step 2: Invite Your Friends and Family

Hosting a Party With A Purpose is about bringing your friends together to make a difference in the lives of animals who deserve a second chance. Now that you are registered, go ahead and invite guests to attend your party! You can find sample email templates in your Host Center to make inviting, contacting, and updating your guests easy.

Step 3: Take the Work Out of Hosting

Set the tone for your party with a Party With A Purpose toolkit! Each toolkit contains coasters, napkins, name cards, a table tent card and thank you cards for 6 guests. You can purchase a toolkit during the registration process, or by contacting us directly at

Step 4: Party Time

You’ve planned your party and rallied your friends. Now it’s time to celebrate your collective impact and enjoy your party. You can join the movement across Calgary by tagging @CalgaryHumane in your photos, or using #CHSparty

Step 5: A Reason to Celebrate

Your efforts and support mean the world to us. Once your event is complete and you have submitted your donations, we will mail you a surprise host gift as a token of our appreciation.
