It’s important to first review our informational page on the adoption process at CA Humane. Here you will find information on the adoption process, what to expect when you adopt and the commitment involved in caring for a life-long pet. When you’re ready, please fill our our Pet Inquiry/Meet & Greet Form located on this page to start the process.

We love and appreciate your donations and support, but do ask that you keep donations to clean items. Soiled items will be recycled, which weighs into our operating budget.
No we are not government funded. We are a local registered charity and not-for-profit organization and 95% of our funding is raised through adoptions, programs, fundraising events and donations.
We charge for adoptions to cover the costs of ensuring the animals we adopt out are not going to reproduce, can be found if lost and are fully vaccinated. This way we are setting the very best example of animal care practice to our community. – we ensure every pet leaves our center vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed/neutered and has clean a bill of health.
Unfortunately we are not bylaw control and we do not have officers that can respond to animal abuse or neglect calls. Animal concerns must go through local bylaw officers, or Alberta SPCA in rural areas. Here is more information.
No, CA Humane is maximum adoption facility, meaning humane euthanasia is performed only in situations of extreme illness or behavioral issues that prevent the safe re-homing. We never euthanize for space, age, or breed but rather manage a “Capacity for Care” system that utilizes a managed wait list system when our facility is full.
