    We are volunteers raising funds and awareness for a treatment and ultimately a cure for Huntington disease. While this promising research is ongoing, we try to improve the lives of families affected by HD.

    Check out our Wish List.


    We also work closely with HSC's Resource Centre Director.

Emergency Pet Boarding

The Calgary Humane Society offers short-term housing for people in crisis through the Emergency Boarding program. This is a last resort program for individuals, experiencing crisis and are unable to care for their animals temporarily. Crisis include such disasters as loss of house due to fire or flooding, sudden hospitalization due to a car accident, or other sudden medical emergencies including but not limited to a heart attack, stroke, broken hips, mental health issues and unforeseen surgeries. Individuals entering into a recovery program or rehab centre may also qualify for the EB program depending on the individual circumstances. It is required that if there are families or friends in the individual’s life that can take responsibility for boarding at a kennel or veterinary clinic or care for the animal that all these options are exhausted before admittance into the program will be considered. In some cases, surrendering the animal may be strongly suggested.

Program Qualification – Individuals requiring access to the EB Program must be referred by or verified by a recognized service agency or professional, such as a Social Worker or Disaster Response Worker (EMS, Fire fighter, or Police Officer).  Admittance to the program is considered only after all criteria have been met, and is granted at the discretion of the CHS.
