Hosting an Event for the Ottawa Humane Society

events (11)Hosting an event in support of the Ottawa Humane Society is a great way to get you, your family, friends and colleagues involved and make a difference in the lives of Ottawa’s animals. The funds you raise will assure a future for the lost and abandoned, injured and mistreated animals in our community.

Follow these easy steps to set up and complete your event:

  1. Decide on an event you would like to host. 
  2. Fill out and submit a Community Event Request Form  and send it to the OHS.
  3. Host your event and track funds raised either online through My Event or offline with a Sponsorship and Donation Receipt Form.
  4. Post-event – you did it! You raised funds for animals in need! If you collected donations offline, track them on a Sponsorship and Donation Receipt Form and send them with your event information to:
