Cost: $50

Location: The Ottawa Humane Society (245 West Hunt Club)

Capacity: Maximum of 15 participants per booking


*Tours are 45 minutes in length and can accommodate a maximum of 15 participants. This includes both children and adult participants. Due to capacity restrictions at the OHS, no exceptions can be made. For groups larger than 15 participants, please book separate tours.

Shelter Animals & Availability:

To maintain safety and security of all participants, and to reduce stress of animals in our care, shelter dogs and rabbits are only viewed in this program. Cat interactions are subject to animal availability on the day of the scheduled tour.

Animals are behaviourally assessed and health checked by our animal care team. These records are used to determine their suitability for programming, as well as their adoption status, current stress level and temperament.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols: To ensure the safety of OHS staff, volunteers, participants and animals, we ask that participants stay home if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or live with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last five days. At this time, masking is not required for OHS programs, although participants who feel more comfortable wearing masks are encouraged to do so. We are regularly monitoring public health regulations and will update our COVID-19 safety protocols if anything changes.

Tours Cancellation Policy: Refund requests received 48 hours in advance of the scheduled program are eligible for a refund of $25 ($25 administration fee is non-refundable). Refund requests received within 48 hours of the scheduled program are not eligible for a refund.

Note: Full refunds will be issued in the event that the OHS has to cancel a scheduled tour.
