Happy Animal Admissions Month, CHS Supporters!

We hope you are having a great January! At the shelter we are winding down after a busy holiday season but we are absolutely THRILLED to say that our adoption team is still going strong and placing many deserving animals into loving homes. Just a reminder though! In light of the very busy Christmas season, our adoption department is operating on modified hours for the next couple months in order to allow us to catch up on paperwork and staff training.

Well, if you are a member of our Facebook page (and if you aren’t, you should be!) you probably saw we already let the proverbial cat out of the bag… but we were so excited we couldn’t wait to share our latest development with you! We now have EVEN MORE ways to make sure stray animals get back to the homes that miss them!

This month in celebration of animal admissions month we are VERY excited to announce that we now have an area of our website where you can view stray animals that have been brought in to Calgary Humane Society! (more…)

I found a pet! Can I keep it?

found a pet keep itHello CHS Supporters! We hope you are all enjoying the spring blooms and green grass. Here at CHS, our dog walkers and dogs are busy soaking up all the sun they can!

Today on the blog, we answer the age old question: I found a pet! Can I keep it?

In our admissions department at Calgary Humane Society one very common question that our staff hear is whether or not someone can keep a stray pet that was found outside. Often those calling in are animal lovers who have found an affectionate animal that does not appear to have a collar or other identification, leading them to wonder if this animal has a home, or if they need one.

We love that so many animal lovers are looking to take in homeless pets, but keeping a pet that you found outside can create some complicated situations. But never fear! We’re bringing you the solutions right now! (more…)
