Help us find homes for all the good boys and girls!

This year we want to see if we can find homes for all the shelter animals so they have somewhere special to enjoy the holidays!

If you’ve been thinking of adopting a new pet… now is the time. For the month of December we’re offering reduced adoption fees on all animals. Spin the wheel of deals and discover what your reduced adoption fee will be. You can help make a tremendous difference in an animal’s life by opening your home to an animal in need!

 

In 2016, Calgary Humane Society was successful in finding homes for 3,493 animals. During last years Home for the Holidays campaign we saw an incredible 262 animals placed in loving forever homes! This year we are hoping to find loving homes for over 300 animals and we cannot accomplish such a feat without your help and generosity.

 


Let us help you find your new best friend!

Myths and Realities of Reduced Fee Adoptions

myths and realities of reduced fee adoptionsHappy July, CHS Supporters!

First, if you haven’t seen all the buzz on our Facebook wall lately, please accept a huge THANK YOU from all of us at Calgary Humane Society for the AWESOME support of our emergency adoption event. Over 200 adoptions in a week? Unreal! We cannot wait to share some of the happy tails and updates with you as we get them.

This leads to a great question that came to us last week! A few of you wrote to ask us if reduced adoption fees lead to a larger number of animals returned. We thought this was such a great question we wanted to feature it on our blog! So today, we bring you some myths and realities of reduced fee adoptions: (more…)

Successful Emergency Adoption Event

July 13th, 2015

Calgary, AB — Immediate Release

Calgary Humane Society offers its sincerest thank-you to Calgarians for a successful emergency adoption event last week.

From July 8 – 12, 125 cats, two degus, 20 dogs, two hamsters, one mouse, 19 rabbits, 12 birds, two snakes and one tortoise, a total of 179 animals (202 animals for the entire week) found new homes, many of which were long-term residents.

The combination of tough economic times, seasonal influx of cats and a recent mass seizure involving close to 20 rabbits, had put Calgary Humane Society over capacity and prompted the appeal to the public for help.

Since June 1st, 2015, we have taken in 768 animals. We currently have 663 animals in shelter, foster homes and remote adoption locations.

The surge of adopters over the five day event led to longer than normal line-ups and wait times which the public handled with patience and understanding. We would also like to thank everyone who generously made monetary and material donations to help with the added burden on our resources during this time.
