Cochrane & Area Humane Society

Sumac is much more user friendly than our previous database. It is easy to use and training new people is a faster process than our previous system. The Sumac team were very helpful in our conversion process and were very quick at responding to any questions we had. Sumac has really helped us keep better track of our donors, members and communications.” – Katie Walde, Administrator

Our Vision

To become a regional leader in building communities that value and treat animals with respect while participating in initiatives that reduce indifference towards, suffering of and overpopulation of animals.

Our Mission

Leading and educating our community in animal welfare by providing pets in need with shelter, rehabilitation, training and opportunity, and supporting people in responsible pet care – saving and changing lives.

What We’re All About

The Cochrane & Area Humane Society provides food, shelter, medical care and the opportunity for adoption; to unwanted, surrendered, lost and unclaimed animals while promoting responsible pet ownership through its educational programs, rural spay/neuter programs, and public fundraising events.

The Cochrane & Area Humane Society was founded in 1998 as a collaboration between Charlene Ruttle, the Town of Cochrane Animal Control Officer, and Tracy Keith, our Executive Director. The Society incorporated on March 10, 1998, received charitable status February 1999 and currently consists of an executive board of directors, a variety of skilled full-time and part-time employees and many dedicated volunteers.

The Cochrane & Area Humane Society staff and volunteers strive to find loving homes for all of the animals that come into their care. They work hard at socializing the shelter animals, offering playtime for the cats on a daily basis and even teaching the dogs basic obedience and manners so that the transition into a new home is easy for everyone. The staff knows that when a well-socialized animal is placed in a good home, the result is a successful and permanent adoption. Learn more about how we work in our Philosophy Statement.

The Cochrane community continues to demonstrate their strong support of the Society through volunteerism, sponsorship, memberships and donations of cash, food and supplies. On behalf of the animals, the shelter staff and volunteers – a warm thank you to all who have supported the Society over the years.
