As I look back on my second year as Board Chair for the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS), it’s clear to me that we are on a positive path as an organization, thanks to our robust strategic plan, dedicated team and your support.
The unwavering commitment you have shown us over the last year has granted us the opportunity to move our plans forward and, as you will see throughout the pages of this report, accomplish so much.
In 2022, we were once again able to invite our community into the shelter and venture out into the community, reconnecting through our humane education program and multiple events.
We’ve taken some massive strides forward in our strategic plan in 2022, successfully completing and implementing some major foundational pieces to support a healthy, safe and respectful workplace for our staff and volunteers, renewing our risk management plan, and developing and updating key governance policies and procedures including asset management.
Our adoption numbers returned to pre-pandemic levels, as 3091 animals found new homes in 2022, the most adoptions we’ve seen since 2019. We actively worked to address community cat over-population by hosting two large-scale Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) clinics and performing 878 spay and neuter surgeries through our PALS program.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present you with the Edmonton Humane Society’s 2022 Annual Report. While I am thrilled to share with you all that we’ve done over the past year, I am even more excited to see what 2023 will bring, thanks to your ongoing support.
