About Our Shelter:

The Calgary Humane Society is a non-profit organization with a rich history of grass roots work on behalf of animals in our community. Founded in 1922, with just a single inspector, several committed volunteers and without a shelter, we have definitely come a long way. Calgary has one of the lowest euthanasia rates in Canada, a full service veterinary clinic for Shelter animals, cutting edge educational programs, an extensive post-adoption support system, more than 300 dedicated volunteers, a wildlife referral network and many ongoing partnerships with vets, the City of Calgary and other animal welfare organizations.

The Calgary Humane Society is very much cause-based, born from a need for animals to be recognized as significant beings. As the community struggles to right the wrongs towards its human members, the Calgary Humane Society is there to speak on behalf of the animals.

The past and future success of the Calgary Humane Society is the undoubtedly the result of the hard work of many dedicated volunteers and employees and our donors' support - all sharing the vision of realizing a better world for animals in Calgary.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
