Party with a Purpose – Calgary Humane Society Fundraiser – August 16, 2019
Shelter has partnered up with the Calgary Humane Society (CHS) to bring awareness to the fantastic work the organization is doing taking care of animals in Calgary. CHS is proudly a “no-kill shelter” which means that at the Calgary Humane Society, every single healthy and adoptable animal is able to stay until they are adopted. This means one simple thing: They never say no, and they never turn an animal away. We recognize the incredible importance of an organization that provides this service, as well as the incredible people who help keep things running.

The CHS also provides a variety of other services including investigation into animal cruelty, emergency boarding services, animal training and more. The team at Shelter Cocktail Bar whole-heartedly supports the work the CHS does and is working alongside them to raise money to help them do even more.

Our fundraising goal for our inaugural year is $1,000 (and we hope to raise even more)! To get involved, just follow the donor links on this page. If you can’t give, but still want to support our cause, please share our page with your friends, family members, and coworkers. With more people aware of our cause, we’ll be one step closer to reaching our goal.

The team at Shelter would like to thank you in advance for your support!
