November 2015 Cool Kids & Community Kudos
Molly & Jack W.
Molly (age 6) and Jack (age 3) smashed open their piggy banks for a good cause this month – to help Ottawa’s animals! These amazing young ones saved up their pennies, quarters and dimes to help the animals at the OHS. Thank you Molly and Jack!
Ben & Harry C.
Pocket change can sure add up and in the case of Ben and Harry (ages 9 and 6, respectively) who collected all the pocket change they could find to help support Ottawa’s animals. These amazing young men dropped off a donation worth over $77 – that’s a lot of coins in your pockets, boys! Way to go!
Sydney P. is one crazy party animal! This young lady held her birthday party at the Ottawa Humane Society and instead of asking for presents for herself she asked her guests to bring presents for the animals at the shelter. What an amazing way to celebrate your birthday, Sydney! On behalf of all the animals at the shelter we say “Thank You!” and “Happy Birthday!”

What is the best way to celebrate turning 9 years old? Josleen G. thinks asking for gifts for the animals at the Ottawa Humane Society instead of herself is the best way – and we agree! This amazing young lady raised over $200 for Ottawa’s animals! On behalf of all the animals at the shelter we say “Thank You!” and “Happy Birthday!”
Heritage Academy’s Entrepreneurship Class II
The Entrepreneurship Class II at Heritage Academy wanted to learn about the gift of giving, and luckily for the animals in the care of the OHS, they chose to give to the Ottawa Humane Society. These entrepreneurial students organized student/student games, made dog and cat treats for sale and even taught other students to bake and sew in exchange for donations. All in total these amazing students raised over $190 for Ottawa’s animals! Way to go Ms. Ward and Entrepreneurship Class II at Heritage Academy!
Layla & Olivia F.
Layla F., seen here with her sister Olivia (age 4) and OHS resident Ariel, is one generous young lady! This amazing girl, age 7, chose to collect items for the animals in lieu of asking for gifts for her birthday. WOW! We think that is an incredible way to celebrate your special day, Layla! From all the staff, volunteers and especially the animals at the OHS we want to say “Thank You!” and “Happy Birthday!”
Julia W. is one sweet cookie! This young lady organized, alongside some of her friends, a craft and cookie sale in support of Ottawa’s animals! All those cookies added up to bring in $95 for the animals in need! Way to go Julia and friends!
Roses are red, violets are blue, Trillium Floral Designs celebrated their 15th anniversary and gave to Ottawa’s animals too! The wonderful people at Trillium Floral Designs celebrated their 15th anniversary and celebrated the occasion by hosting gift baskets and raffle draws with all the proceeds going to help Ottawa’s animals in need! They raised a blooming $640 for the OHS! Here’s to another 15 years in business, and in helping Ottawa’s animals, Trillium Floral Designs!
How high would you go to help Ottawa’s animals? Charmaine Hall would go 144 flights (or 1,776 steps, to be exact!) to help Ottawa’s animals in need! This amazing (and brave!) OHS supporter climbed the CN Tower in just over 20 minutes and asked for donations for this amazing climb. She raised a towering $300+ for the animals in the care of the Ottawa Humane Society!
Everyone should raise their glasses to Karine L. and the team at Morneau Shepell who organized one heck of a FUN-draiser for Ottawa’s animals with a little help from Beau’s Brewery. This great office team helped raise funds to support the animals in our care by hosting a beer tasting and had a lot of fun doing it! Big thanks to them, Beau’s and Karine for organizing this wonderful event!
Brazeau Seller LLP
This group of lawyers don’t just give expert legal advice – they give to the Ottawa Humane Society too! The team from Brazeau Seller LLP organized a staff donation drive for September and October and raised over $312 for the animals in the care of the OHS. Thank you Brazeau Seller LLP!
Miss Cassidy V. celebrated her ninth birthday in September and decided to celebrate her special day by making a very generous donation to Ottawa’s animals. This young lady, seen here with her sister Riley (age six), donated $20 and a ton of treats, toys and leashes for the cats, dogs and birds at the OHS. Wow! What a way to celebrate your big day, Cassidy! On behalf of everyone at the shelter we want to wish you a special “Happy Birthday!”
Avery & Hannah R.
Sisters Avery and Hannah R. are Ottawa’s newest young social entrepreneurs. These talented young ladies worked hard to make wooden beaded bracelets which they then sold for $1 each to friends, family and customers as far away as Florida! They raised a whopping $46 for Ottawa’s animals in need and also brought in fun toys for the kitties in our care. Way to go Avery and Hannah!
