Mark September 8th on your calendar for as one-of-a-kind community celebration for the animals at the Ottawa Humane Society!

Join me on September 8, 2013 for a special 25th anniversary edition of our annual Wiggle Waggle

Walkathon for the animals.

Our Wiggle Waggle Walkathon has finally come home! Queen Juliana Park (Carling and Prince of Wales). This is where it all started - 25 years ago when a small but dedicated group of volunteers decided to organize a walkathon to help raise money for the animals the OHS.

This is also the 125th anniversary of the Ottawa Humane Society. In honour of 125 years of helping Ottawa's animals, I am challenging you and everyone in our community who loves animals and wants to help the OHS save animal lives - to raise $125.

Registration is now open and you can register today and set up your personal fundraising page at

Walk or run for the animals - you now have a choice!

Are you a runner? Slow, fast, or in between, no worries, we have a new and exciting addition for the festivities on September 8th. We’re introducing our first annual Run for the Animals, to be held concurrently with the walkathon. It’ll be a timed 5KM, 10KM with a 1KM Kids Fun Run, and a very special 3KM Companion Dog Run.  Details will be announced soon - so mark that day on your running calendars to run for the animals!

I will be running in the 5km run and hope to see you there - running, walking, enjoying our family fun zone, K9 activity area, Pet Pavilion shopping area and most of all celebrating 125 years of the OHS helping animals in our community.
