Pets Can Complete a Family

Families come in all shapes and sizes

Who did you celebrate the holidays with this year? You probably spent the season surrounded by friends and family – but what does that mean nowadays?

For many, family no is longer defined as a two kids, a mom and a dad. The meaning has changed to become more inclusive – and it has been expanded to include four-legged, feathered and even members with fins.

Pets can complete a family. They may even be your family. They’re included in family photos, join us on vacation, greet us at the end of the day, and even sleep at the foot of our beds. They love us unconditionally and depend on us – just like family.

If you’re thinking about adding a new furry friend, there are many wonderful pets at the Ottawa Humane Society right now who would love to be welcomed into your family.

Please visit our website at to check out all the animals available for adoption. You next jogging partner, sympathetic ear, Saturday afternoon nap buddy – family member – may be waiting here for you at this very moment!
