Birthday Parties


Have your next Birthday 'Pawty' at the Central Alberta Humane Society! Not only will you have a fantastic time, the proceeds from the party go right back to help the animals of CAHumane. Now that’s a reason to party!

Our  'Pawty' package is so much fun! Enjoy crafts and animal visits and playtime in a private, colorfully decorated birthday room. 

Party schedules can book up very quickly, so please call or e-mail well in advance of your child's birthday to avoid disappointment.

"We had our daughter’s 8th birthday at Central Alberta Humane Society.  Best birthday to date!  The set up which included nicely decorated room and take down was all included in the cost.  The kids enjoyed a great art project along with special guests (a ferret and 2 puppies) and finished up with a visit to all 3 cat rooms.  The party was lots of fun and kept the kids engaged and entertained.  Mel was a great host and the party cost helps out with facility costs as well.  Win Win!"
