    The Edmonton Humane Society (formerly Edmonton SPCA) was first organized in 1907 by its founder, (Rosetta Graydon) - Edmonton’s first humane educator. The EHS was then incorporated as a non-profit animal welfare society in 1910, and issued its Charter in 1912. During about a hundred years of operation, the non-profit organization has dedicated efforts to sheltering and speaking for homeless and abused companion animals.

    The Edmonton Humane Society is not affiliated with any other Humane Society or SPCA. Any donations to other organizations are not passed on to the EHS through any other organization.

    The EHS is also not affiliated with the City of Edmonton’s Animal Control Services (City Pound). We do however, have an agreement with that City department to take in adoptable strays that are turned over to that group, and then we find them homes.

    The EHS does not take in stray animals found in the City of Edmonton (the City Pound does). The EHS takes in strays only found in surrounding communities.

    Our Animal Protection Department works independently to investigate possible cases of animal abuse, and can lay criminal charges under the Alberta Animal Protection Act. People can also be charged under sections 444 to 447 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
