Ottawa Humane Society at Your Door

Ottawa Humane Society at Your Door 

About our door-to-door fundraising program 

The Ottawa Humane Society is fundraising door-to-door in Ottawa’s neighbourhoods. We are out in the community because Ottawa’s animals need you right now to provide the second chance they deserve. You can make a difference in the lives of the animals at the OHS. 

You can support the animals by becoming a monthly donor right at your door. PAW monthly giving is the best way to help the animals, ensuring they have reliable, life-saving support every month. 

If you have any questions, contact us at 613-725-3166 ext. 254. 

How do I identify an OHS fundraiser? 

Our fundraisers wear: 

  • An identification badge that states their name and their identification number. If the fundraiser is in training, their badge may state “Trainee” in place of their name; and, 
  • A red OHS vest branded with the Ottawa Humane Society logo.

How do I give at my door? 

To donate, our fundraisers will lead you through these steps: 

  • They will use electronic tablets, not paper forms, to ensure your personal information is kept safe and secure; 
  • A verification agent from the confirmation centre will call you on the spot, on your phone, to confirm your personal information and collect your payment information; 
  • They will NEVER ask for or accept cash donations; 
  • They should be able to answer questions about the OHS and our programs; and, 
  • In 24 to 48 hours following your sign up, you will receive a welcome call to verify your information and desire to donate. 

The confirmation centre will have one of these phone numbers: 

  • 613-518-0296 
  • 866-513-2058 

Can I give another way? 

Your support is essential to secure second chances for animals in need. You can make a gift for the animals online at or call us at 613-725-3166 ext. 254.    

Why can’t I pay with cash? 

Fundraisers are not equipped to safely carry cash when fundraising door-to-door. Donations could be lost or misplaced, or even stolen from the fundraiser. For their safety and yours, cash is not permitted. 

Do you have permission to fundraise door-to-door? 

Yes, our fundraising partners are operating in accordance with the rules laid out by the provincial and federal government. 

In what areas should I expect to see your fundraisers? 

Fundraisers for the OHS can be seen in various neighbourhoods throughout the city. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to confirm if fundraisers are in your area.  

When should I expect to see fundraisers? 

Our fundraisers can be seen canvassing from 12 to 9 p.m. any day of the week throughout the city.
