About Edmonton Humane Society:
Founded in 1907, Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) protects sick, injured and homeless animals in Edmonton. EHS also educates children and pet owners about caring for animals. Its programs include Animal Care, Animal Health & Behaviour, and Humane Education.
Edmonton Humane Society’s Animal Care program includes animal adoptions, transfers, trap-neuter-returns, and more. In F2018, EHS performed 143 transfers, 91 trap-neuter-returns, and returned 310 animals to owners. EHS cared for a total of 6,092 animals in F2018.
Edmonton Humane Society performs spays, neuters, behaviour training and more through its Animal Health & Behaviour program. In F2018, EHS spayed or neutered 3,637 animals and modified 424 dogs’ behaviour.
Edmonton Humane Society’s Humane Education program hosts presentations, shelter tours, birthday parties, classes, conferences, and more. In F2018, EHS held 3,424 educational presentations and shelter tours, 2,362 birthday parties, 595 conferences, and 434 kid camps. In total, EHS reached 7,481 people in F2018.
Results and Impact:
In F2018, Edmonton Humane Society found new homes for 4,624 animals. EHS reported that its live release rate of animals rose to 93% in F2018. Through the Humane Education program, 1,032 dogs graduated from training classes in F2018.
While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Edmonton Humane Society’s results and impact.
Edmonton Humane Society is a large charity, with total donations of $5.8m in F2018. Fundraising costs are 24% of donations and EHS reports no administrative costs on its audited financial statements. 2017 and 2016 administrative costs were taken from the charity's T3010 filing. The 2018 filing was not available at the time of this profile update, thus administrative costs are likely understated, and fundraising costs may be overstated. For every dollar donated, 75 cents go to the cause. This is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $10m can cover 1.7 years of annual program costs.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Edmonton Humane Society for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
