We care about Ottawa's animals

Each year, we care for thousands of sick, injured and homeless animals, providing leadership in animal welfare to help build a compassionate community and a brighter future for our community.

Land Acknowledgement

The Ottawa Humane Society’s facilities are located on the traditional unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin People. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work and be present on this territory. As a humane society, we embrace our responsibility to care for our community’s animals and foster compassion and respect for all.
