Birthday Parties

Birthdays are the cat’s meow at the WHS!


Come spend your special day at the Winnipeg Humane Society.

Our staff and volunteers will make your birthday bash as memorable as possible with animal interactions, a shelter tour, and more.

Everyone at the party will get a chance to meet and learn about some of our very special shelter animals, including how we care for them, and how we try and find them fur-ever homes!

  • We can accommodate ages 5 and up.
  • Should you cancel your party within two weeks of your party date, no refund will be issued.
  • For cancellations with more than two weeks’ notice, you will receive a full refund, less a $5 admin fee that will be applied.
  • We accept cash, cheque, or credit card. Credit card payments can be made online, all other payments can be made at the WHS (45 Hurst Way).
  • WHS programs are nut-free, so please leave any nuts or nut-related products at home. The WHS will provide all the party necessities: a cake knife and server, tablecloths, reusable plates, napkins, cups, a pizza slicer and utensils.

It is important to book your party at least 6-8 weeks in advance, as our schedule fills up very quickly. All details must be completed and confirmed at least one week prior to your party, so make sure you book several weeks in advance to avoid last-minute preparations.
