Have a ‘Sweet February’ with Central Alberta Humane Society>

February 07, 2022 | Red Deer, AB – Throughout the entire month of February, CA Humane has partnered with participating local bakeries to celebrate ‘Sweet February’. Each bakery has chosen a specific week in February to sell a signature item created exclusively for CA Humane. These bakeries are generously donating 50% of their signature item’s proceeds to our shelter where it will help us treat, care for and re-home unwanted, abandoned, and stray companion animals. This February, CA Humane is asking the Central Alberta community to support the local bakeries that support their shelter. With delicious, and unique offerings, such as the ‘Ultimate Sundae Cupcake’ or a ‘Croissant glazed donut filled with Bavarian crème’ there’s sure to be something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. If your business meeting, Valentine’s Day or Family Day celebrations are in need of something sweet, please consider supporting CA Humane’s ‘Sweet February’ vendors this month. For more information on CA Humane’s ‘Sweet February’ including when and where to purchase the participating baker’s signature creations, please visit: cahumane.com.

Did you know October is National RVT month?

Before we celebrate National Veterinary Week (October 17 - 23) we wanted to give a BIG shout out to our in-house Registered Veterinary Technologists (RVT).

Please meet our amazing Vet Tech team here at CAHumane: Jess Beech & Grace Peterson.

These two have the most incredible passion, commitment, talent and drive for helping our shelter animals thrive.

What do Vet Techs do you might be asking?

Well, you could say a bit of everything: they’re pharmacists, anesthesiologists, phlebotomists, lab technologists, radiologists & dental hygienists – just to name a few.

They’re essential and so appreciated – thanks for all you do Jess & Grace!

The Time to adopt is Now

We put together some reasons why 'meow' is the right time to adopt from the Central Alberta Humane Society. 

Are you ready to adopt? Here are a few questions to ask yourself before bringing a new pet into your life.
  • Do I have the space in my home?
  • Do I have the time to share right now?
  • Do I want to create healthy routines with my new pet?
  • Can I financially support their needs?
  • Would spending time with a new pet make me and my family happy?

We know first-hand that adopting from shelters is a great way to boost your mental health. Adopting also gives a homeless pet a second chance to get the social interaction, love and care that a stable home and family provides. 


Troubled Monk Brewery Raise the Woof

In collaboration with the Central Alberta Humane Society

Good things come to those who wait and, in this case, good means tasty. 

We're so proud to announce that Red Deer's favourite brewery, Troubled Monk, has chosen to collaborate with the Central Alberta Humane Society by creating a beer just for us, and animal-lovers, alike. Introducing 'Raise the Woof' - a Kentucky Common as smooth as it is tasty, much like all the beers we've come to love from the expert brewers at Troubled Monk.

A big thank you to Troubled Monk for supporting our work and contributing this generous donation to our shelter. We couldn't do this without community supporters like you. Little known fact: Kentucky Common has the addition of corn and therefore is lower in gluten! 

For more information please visit: Troubled Monk's Blog Post  

Thank you in advance for your support - we couldn't 'Raise the Woof' without you!

#CAHumaneSociety to spread awareness & to help our animals in care!

Troubled Monk’s hours of operation: 11am - 8pm
