In an effort to limit the transmission of COVID-19 and with our priority on keeping people and pets in our community healthy and safe, the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) has modified its services, with adoptions available by appointment. Please visit our COVID-19 updates page for full details.

Barn Buddies Program

These spayed/neutered cats are well-suited to living the acreage or farm life outdoors!

These cats are not suited to living indoors as they will not use a litter box, and/or do not like being around people due to being feral/semi-feral. To help these Barn Buddies find a home suited for them, these cats are available by a fee of your choice rather than standard adoption fees. Adopters must be able to provide food, water and shelter for their Barn Buddy.

If you would like to request a Barn Buddy cat please complete the request form below and our Adoptions team will be in touch.

Cattitude Cats Program

What do you call a cat with attitude? A cattitude cat!

Some of the cats we have in our care are not as social, but will still make good house pets. To help these “grumpy cats” find their forever homes, they are available to adoption at a fee of your choice. Cattitude cat’s are listed with our regular adoption but will say ‘Cattitude’ right in the title so they are easy to pick out.


Senior-for-Senior Program

Cats can make wonderful companions for seniors, and pet ownership has many health and stress-relieving benefits too!

To help the older felines in our care find suitable homes, adoption fees for senior cats (age 7 and up) when adopted by senior people (age 60 and up) are by a fee of your choice, instead of our standard adoption fees.
