Be a party animal and celebrate your child’s birthday at the Edmonton Humane Society!

Does your child love animals? What better way to celebrate their birthday than coming and spending time with shelter animals here at EHS?!

Birthday parties at EHS are perfect for children between the ages of 6 to 12 years who love animals and are interested in learning more about what we do here at our wonderful shelter! Your party will be 2.5 hours in length, and will typically start with creating and  decorating your carrier for your animal and ADOPTING your plushie! After, you’ll be taken on a behind-the-scenes tour of the shelter that day. After you’ll come back to the birthday room and will have about 45 minutes left to enjoy food, cake, and gift opening in your private room.

*If you’d like to do activities in a different order discuss with your Creator of Fun at the start of your party.

Animals are limited due to availability of animals who are able to be interacted with in large groups.

Cancellation Policy: You may change your party time, without penalty, up to 14 days before your originally scheduled party time, pending availability. Cancellations made within 14 days of the party date will be subject to at 50% charge of the full party cost.
