It’s been in the works for years, but the new OHS is here, we’ve settled in, and we want you to visit us!
If you’ve ever been to the old 101 Champagne Ave. shelter, you’re in for a treat. Forget about the cramped, dark and depressing shelter you once knew. The new Ottawa Humane Society at 245 West Hunt Club Road is bright, welcoming and a significantly better environment for the animals in our care.
Check out the Adoption Centre; see the adoptable dogs; spend some time visiting and getting to know the cats in the community cat rooms. Chat with our Adoption Centre counselors and let them help you find your purrfect match! While you’re here, find out about the community programs we offer in our new Education Centre! The new Education Centre allows us to serve our community in two ways – by hosting onsite kids’ camps, PD days, pre-adoption classes and dog obedience training sessions, and by offering you a venue for rent to host your meeting or event (catering kitchen attached).
Before you go, stop by the Buddy & Belle Boutique, where all proceeds go to the animals in our care. Whether you’re a first-time pet owner or a long-time pet parent, the Buddy & Belle Boutique has everything you and your pet need, including: pet food, carriers, crates, pet beds, ID tags, collars, leashes, harnesses, toys, treats and more! (Pets are welcome to shop too!)
The OHS is so much more than just an adoption centre!
The OHS is a community organization offering services to the residents of Ottawa and beyond. Members of the community we serve donated to the Breaking Ground Building Campaign to build this new shelter, and now – more than ever – we are able to give back to the community that has given us so much.
Come have a look at the new-and-improved Ottawa Humane Society. You won’t be disappointed.
