Now in its 10th year, it is a wonderful evening that brings together the business community, pet lovers and supporters to celebrate the love of animals and success stories of the EHS.

The Paws & Claws Gala is known as a great night of music, laughs, gourmet food, as well as unique silent and live auction items. Plus, there’s always the friendly and forever grateful EHS alumni animals to mix and mingle with who are ready to greet guests with a welcoming paw.

A Purr-fectly Great Cause

The Paws & Claws Gala was created by the staff of Coventry Homes out of the desire to help animals in need. A cause close to the hearts of many of their employees, they decided to get together and specifically champion the work of the Edmonton Humane Society. Recognizing that not just people, but animals need a good loving home too; the Coventry staff wanted to find a way to make a difference and give hope to these often overlooked loving companions.

Through their inspiration, the Coventry Homes Homes for Hounds initiative was born in an effort to generate funds to support the EHS and their amazing programs.

About The Edmonton Humane Society
Every year, the Edmonton Humane Society takes in over 10,000 homeless, abused, and abandoned animals. No animal is given a time limit in the shelter so that each one may have a chance to find their forever home. But there is a cost to providing such top notch care. In one year it takes approximately 7 million dollars to keep the Edmonton Humane Society operational. The EHS also provides important educational services and programs to the public, and information about behaviour and training is based on the most up-to-date and innovative research from high ranking professionals and universities in North America. Through strong partnerships and innovation, the Edmonton Humane Society is truly committed to helping homeless and abused companion animals, enlightening people, and enriching lives.
