Our Vision:

Using innovative strategies to lead, inspire and educate in the humane treatment of companion animals, fostering an enlightened community which consistently demonstrates respect and compassion for animals.

Calgary Humane Society has been providing essential community services since 1922, making us Calgary’s first and most experienced animal welfare organization. Today, in addition to being a multi-service animal shelter, Calgary Humane Society’s Protection and Investigations department is also a law enforcement agency appointed by the provincial government to enforce Alberta’s Animal Protection Act.

Calgary Humane Society’s shelter facility is located at 4455 110 Avenue S.E. in Calgary. Opened in 2006, our beautiful and safe state-of-the-art facility was made possible by the generosity of the Calgary community. Thanks to you, Calgary Humane Society is able to offer industry-leading animal behaviour classes and educational programs in addition to our first class animal care and adoption services.
