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 made the decision to close our facility to the general public effective immediately until further notice. At this time, our adoption program is on hold, however some Barn Buddy adoptions may still be able to be facilitated. If you are interested in a Barn Buddy, please complete the application below. Animals will continue to be cared for by EHS staff at the shelter or in foster homes. For full details and continued updates, please visit

Barn Buddies Program

These spayed/neutered cats are well-suited to the acreage or farm life! These cats are not suited to living indoors as they will not use a litter box or are feral/semi-feral. To help these Barn Buddies find a home suited for them, we have waived their adoption fees. Applicants must be able to provide food, water and shelter for their Barn Buddy.

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, their adoption fees are waived.

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, we waive the adoption fees for senior cats (age 7 and up) when adopted by senior people (age 60 and up).
