Surprise Your Kids This Holiday Season With a Pet and Make a Homeless Animal’s Dreams Come True

‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring except a little OHS mouse. 

With the holidays quickly approaching, children everywhere can be found making lists of all the gifts and goodies they’d like to find under the tree. Not wanting to miss out, the animals here at the Ottawa Humane Society are busy doing the same thing: 

Max is wishing for a cozy bed to snuggle in, a squeaky tennis ball to chew on and a Kong filled with peanut butter; while Zander hopes for a scratching post, a laser to chase after and a bright, colourful collar to stand out against his beautiful white fur. 


With all the lists, though, there is one item that always comes up on top and that is a home for the holidays. If you have been dreaming of having the pitter patter of little furry feet around your home, you could make a special memory not only for an animal but for your family. With our HolidayDelivery Program, be it a guinea pig, cat, bird, rabbit or dog, our holiday elves will help you find the best match for your family and arrange for a magical holiday delivery that will remembered for years to come. 

Deliveries can be made for any of the nights of Hanukkah as well as Christmas morning; and while regular adoption procedures apply in addition to a delivery fee, don’t worry, our elves are really good at keeping a secret! 

So make the holidays bright for one of the amazing animals available at the Ottawa Humane Society and they will make sure that you get the best gift of all this year – unconditional love in a cuddly, furry bundle. Please contact our Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166, ext. 258, for more information or visit our website at
