Rehabilitation and Education Centre Capital Campaign

Keep up to date with our Building Compassionate Communities Capital Campaign!

The Need

The new Rehabilitation & Education Centre will allow us to better serve our community. Our existing educational programs are being offered from a location we have outgrown and will soon no longer be available to us, thus making the construction of the new facility urgent. Once built, we can expand programming to successfully serve our rapidly growing community.

How You Can Help

To date we have raised more than 77% of the $850,000 needed to complete this 4000 square foot building which will be constructed on the existing shelter property. please help us give the animals of Cochrane and surrounding communities a new leash on life by donating to the Rehabilitation & Education Centre. We are very grateful for your support.

Key Benefits

  • The Rehabilitation & Education Centre will provide educational opportunities, including training and behaviour seminars for the public, our staff and our volunteers. Public and shelter animals can partake in dog training classes, agility classes and behaviour consultations.
  • Our education programs currently engage over 500 children each year and continue to grow. Research shows youth education programs focused on empathy and kindness to all living creatures helps break cycles of bullying, animals cruelty and family violence, making education a CAHS priority.
  • Additional space will support the growing demands on our Pet Safe Program for victims of domestic violence and our Emergency Boarding Program for those families suffering personal hardship that need temporary housing for their pets.
  • Fee based programs and services offered will provide sustainability to the CAHS through consistent revenue generation.

So very happy to report that we are more thrilled than we can say with this lovely girl, she is truly one of the best mannered and sweetest cats we’ve ever had, it has lightened our lives immeasurably, we parted with two this past year and were broken hearted not sure if we would have another, but we needed her as badly as she needed us, it just happened when the time was right. It was meant to be. She follows us from room to room, is really energetic and playful, bringing her toys into the bedroom to get me motivated in morning, I really can’t express our joy enough, and yes she’s become the most photographed kitty ever! We had company yesterday and she walked right up to them which made my heart so happy, I was worried that she would be just too attached to us two.  She’s very easy going and forgiving. It’s really neat that this is possible through places like yours, we so appreciate the care and kindness you people show these animals and making it possible for this to happen.


Meet. Adopt. Love.
