OHS supporters - young and old(er) are the BEST! You help us save animal lives by being involved with the Ottawa Humane Society in so so many ways.
Many of you simply cannot get enough and participate in countless programs and activities to help the animals in our care.
Here are three recent shining examples that warmed my heart:

Alena MacDonald is very committed young supporter of the animals at the OHS. She donated all of her allowance to help us care for the animals. She even went so far as to make her own posters encouraging others to help the OHS - which she then put up in her neighbourhood. Parents Jayor and Heather are monthly donors and have adopted their cat Ringo from the OHS - making this truly a family affair!

"Off-Leash" Camp gear!
The Shaw-Preece family adopted their special cat Cupcake in February, right around the same time mom Jennifer won free tickets to the OHS FurBall after purchasing tickets in our annual Warm Hearts Raffle. Daughter Alexa has been to OHS PD Day programs and also attended our "Off-Leash" Summer Camp. Alexa is planning on coming back to camp this year and learning first-hand about how to be a responsible animal owner.
Zoey and Molly Purves are two special supporters who involved their neighbours to help the OHS. Zoey wants to be a vet and attended our "Off-Leash" Summer Camp last summer as part of her plan to find a new family cat. Her hard work paid off and the Purves family welcomed a new member - Candy. Zoey and Molly recently held their own raffle to help the animals. They made ballots and sold them to neighbours. Zoey, Molly and their two friends Catherine and Elizabeth ended up raising $18 to help us care for Ottawa's animals. By the way, first prize in the raffle - a picture of their cat Candy!
