About the Wedding Celebration Program

Start your happily ever after with a meaningful dedication and show your love for all creatures big and small with the Ottawa Humane Society Wedding Celebration Program.

logo-clearbckgrndThe Ottawa Humane Society Wedding Donation Program is a way for couples to mark their special day while helping Ottawa’s animals. When you chose to donate to the OHS in lieu of favours, you and your guests help the more than 10,000 lost, abandoned, neglected and abused animals, the OHS cares for annually. You also allow the OHS to continue to provide leadership in animal welfare, building a brighter future for our community.

We offer the following programs to support couples in the celebration of their engagement and marriage:

In lieu of wedding favours: For a donation, we can provide you with our standard wedding donation place card, table tent card or wedding reception certificates. Orders of over 150 can be customized to include your own personal text and image of your pet(s). We suggest $3-8 per guest when making a donation in lieu of traditional wedding favours.

In lieu of wedding gifts: Requesting that your guests make a tax-receiptable donation in lieu of wedding gifts is a fantastic way to make a difference in the lives of animals in need. To inform your guests, we encourage you to make a request for donations to the Ottawa Humane Society in your wedding invitations. After the wedding, we also send a thank you tax receipt to your guests for their donation.

Create a wedding page: Celebrate your engagement and every precious moment leading up to the big day by creating your own wedding page online. Send updates, post photos of your special moments, and provide a destination for friends, family and invited guests to make a donation to the Ottawa Humane Society in honour of your wedding.

Please note: Ottawa Humane Society Wedding Celebration Program donation logos are available in male and female same-sex versions.
