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.

We wanted to send an adoption/birthday update on Cosmo (formally Delilah) Cosmo is doing as wonderful as ever. She spends her days tanning in front of the windows or sleeping soundly on any piece of furniture or clothing she can find. She is still a bit weary of the family dog but for the most part they co-exist in peace. She and our other cat Bynx get along better and better everyday, even sharing tanning spots and sharing from the same bowl of food. Cosmo still talks nonstop and follows us wherever we go, she is very curious!
We love Cosmo so much and feel so grateful that no one else adopted her before us.
Thank you as always, for all you do.

Meet. Adopt. Love.
