Welcome to March, CHS Supporters!
March is one of our favorite months at Calgary Humane Society because everything starts to turn green, our summer camp program starts to take shape and we start to plan our flower beds for the summer season.
This year we have an interesting influx of little critters at the shelter and we are spending the month of March celebrating these little furry residents. Currently we have several small animals including mice and guinea pigs, looking for great homes. Today on the blog, we’re looking at the real truth behind pet mice!
