Fear Free Certification

We would like all volunteers to be certified in Fear Free. The Fear Free Program teaches you all of the strategies and techniques you need to work with animals to make them feel more comfortable. Handling an animal properly keeps you safe and improves the animal’s overall welfare — so it’s a win-win!

If you have any questions on the Fear Free Program or how to register, please contact Lindsey Gemmell at volunteering@ottawahumane.ca.

Zoonosis Education

With the ongoing health crisis, we want everyone to continue to feel safe and be safe as we gradually welcome you back on-site. All volunteers must participate in zoonotic education to keep themselves safe.

Once you’ve watched it, please contact Lindsey Gemmell at volunteering@ottawahumane.ca, so we can update your file.
