Pet Expo – Join the OHS at this Very Special Event for the Animals

I am always thrilled when the community thinks of helping the animals at the OHS. Last year, Ottawa Pet Expo approached us about being the official charity partner. We agreed right away, as it was an excellent opportunity to meet with and speak with so many animal owners across our region and to raise much-needed money for the animals in our care.

The OHS is once again proud to be part of the 2013 edition of Ottawa Pet Expo on Nov. 9 and 10. Please join us at our booth and speak with staff and volunteers about OHS programs and services such as our: humane education program; pet first aid; dog obedience classes; microchip clinics; "Off-Leash" PD day and summer camps; and birthday parties.

Trained staff will also be on hand to answer any questions about our animals up for adoption. We will have special guest animals from our Brightening Lives visitation program along with information on animals currently available for adoption. If you think you have found your perfect match, remember we are now open Sundays and you can visit with and see all the animals at our shelter down the street at 245 West Hunt Club Rd.

How can you help the animals while attending Ottawa Pet Expo? There are many ways – you can:

  • Visit one of the many vendors helping the OHS by donating all or part of their proceeds to the animals in our care
  • Buy something for your special four-legged friend from our Buddy and Belle Boutique – remember, we always have more great animal items back at the store
  • Purchase a Warm Heart Raffle ticket at the OHS booth – you can win great cash prizes – but best of all, the animals in our care are the real winners
  • Bring your old pennies and coins and dump your change in one of the large Buddy and Belle coin-boxes throughout the Ottawa Pet Expo site 

Ottawa Pet Expo takes place at the Earnst and Young Centre (4899 Uplands Dr.) and tickets can be purchased here.

I hope to see you there.
