Ottawa Found Dogs

An appointment is required to bring in a found animal or to claim a lost pet. If you have found an animal, please contact us at 613-725-3166, ext. 221 to schedule an appointment.

If the animal is in distress, call 311 immediately.

To claim a lost pet, please contact us at 613-725-3166, ext. 223 to make an appointment.

Members of the public cannot search for lost pets in person, but if you think your lost pet is at the OHS, please call us and we will work with you to verify if it’s yours. You can also follow these steps to help get your dog back home!
