Calgary Humane Society - Emergency Boarding Program

The Calgary Humane Society offers short term housing for people in crisis through the Emergency Boarding program. This is a last resort program for individuals, experiencing crisis and are unable to care for their animals temporarily. Crisis include such disasters as loss of house due to fire or flooding, sudden hospitalization due to a car accident, or other sudden medical emergencies including but not limited to a heart attack, stroke, broken hips. Individuals entering into a recovery program or rehab centre may also qualify for the EB program depending on the individual circumstances. It is required that if there are families or friends in the individuals life that can take responsibility for boarding at a kennel or veterinary clinic or care for the animal that all these options are exhausted before admittance into the program will be considered. In some cases, surrendering the animal may be strongly suggested.
