Get ready to change the world!

In the Humane Education department we have a simple view: The world can be, and must be, a better place for all living things. Through participating in a humane education program you will help to create the world we all want to live in.

We offer a wide range of programs for children, youth and adults with a focus on building compassion for all living things, the role CHS plays within the community, empathy building, violence prevention and respect for our natural world. Our humane education programs foster compassion, empathy and respect through four program pillars: Youth Clubs, Birthdays, Camps and Presentations. To browse the wide range of programs we are offering for all ages, please check out the purple navigation bar to the left.

Community Group Tours –  Calgary Humane Society

Do you have a community group that would like to see what we do at Calgary Humane Society? Come bring a group of friends, Beavers, Scouts, Girl Guide, etc!

You will receive a 30-minute general presentation to learn about the shelter along with a 30-minute tour of our facility! Tours run on Monday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:00pm each week.

General Presentation:  This presentation gives a general overview of the shelter and answers lots of commonly asked questions including: how to the animals get there, how many animals, what kind of animals etc.  It also includes information about the teams that help the animals in our care.  There are stories of animals that have been in our care that represent the 3 most common ways that animals come to us, surrenders, strays and seized.  This is our second most booked presentation.

Tour: Your group will be exploring the adoptions floor and learning centre.  You will see the animal enclosures for the cats, dogs, bunnies, reptiles, birds and more! The tour facilitators will be able to tell you interesting facts about each animal, as well as the history of the building as you move along! They will also answer any of your questions that you may have about CHS.

Tours are $50 dollars for a maximum of 15 people.
