Investigate scenes and help animals in need

To kick off Animal Cruelty Awareness Month, EHS is hosting an interactive scene investigation on now until Sunday, April 9, giving children and parents the chance to assess scenarios and identify how they can help animals in need.

“We rely on the public to be our eyes and ears in the community,” said Officer B. Grey, EHS Animal Protection. “Without the public’s assistance, we would not be able to remove animals from unthinkable situations and help them find loving, lasting homes.”

The Edmonton Humane Society also hosts a Watchdog program designed to help people identify and report animal cruelty and neglect in their communities. For more details and to become an EHS Watchdog, click HERE!

Anyone with first-hand knowledge of an animal in distress is asked to contact the Edmonton Humane Society animal protection officers at 780-491-3517.



Each year, The Edmonton Humane Society takes in thousands of neglected and abused animals. As a leader in the advancement of animal welfare, the EHS enriches the lives of people and companion animals through animal sheltering, programs and services, and community engagement. For more information, visit
