Help us save lives.

It takes approximately 7 million dollars to keep the Edmonton Humane Society operational for one year and 40% of these funds come from generous donations made by supporters like you.


Meet Littlefoot

Littlefoot is just one of thousands of animals that receive a 2nd chance thanks to the Edmonton Humane Society.

Littlefoot, the runt of the litter, his mom and littermates arrived at EHS when he was just three weeks old. He was diagnosed with failure to thrive and spent nearly two months in our foster care program before going up for adoption.

Cory and Lindsey came to EHS looking for a companion for Lindsey, who suffered from depression and anxiety. “I couldn’t imagine my life without him,” said Lindsey.
