FROM AUGUST 1st TO 31st, CALGARY HUMANE SOCIETY INVITES you to celebrate PAWGUST with us and help feed the animals!


Regardless of their story, medical or behavioral needs, every animal that walks though our doors has one thing in common – they all need a nutritious bowl of food to support their journey to their forever home.

Every year, Calgary Humane Society feeds approximately 140,000 cups of food to our animals, which is about 48,000 pounds and costs over $146,000! Funds raised during PAWGUST will help provide this food for animals in need.

Your Impact


In 2020, Calgary Humane Society admitted 2,818 animals. We fed 71,209 cups of food to 623 dogs and 1,479 cats. This doesn’t even include all of the food fed to all of our exotic and small critter residents! That number marks a notable drop from 2019, when we admitted and cared for 4,572 animals and fed 139,372 cups of food to dogs and cats alone!

Your support has never been as important. As COVID-19 regulations are lifted and the world returns to ‘normal’, we anticipate our admission numbers to increase and the number of animals requiring a nutritious and tailored diet to also grow.

By participating in PAWGUST, you are directly helping the animals at Calgary Humane Society receive the nutrition they need and deserve.
