OHS Emergency Pet Food Bank

The OHS Emergency Pet Food Bank supports Ottawa area residents by providing short term relief for pet owners who are struggling with the cost of pet ownership because of temporary and unforeseen circumstances.

The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) offers an Emergency Pet Food Bank onsite at the OHS and works with the Ottawa Food Bank (OFB) to ensure pet food is accessible through local food banks. If you are currently a client of the OFB, or wish to become a client, find your local community food bank.

For more information regarding Ottawa Food Bank services, please email foodbank@ottawafoodbank.ca or call 613-745-7001.
