OHS Auxiliary

Ottawa Humane Society Auxiliary

OHS auxiliaryThe Ottawa Humane Society Auxiliary was formed in 1949. Its mandate is to support the society and to raise funds for the animals in its care.

Throughout its 65 years, auxiliary fundraising has supported foster care, adoptions, medicine and health care, food, equipment and the construction of the shelter at 245 West Hunt Club Rd.

The auxiliary supports the OHS through annual fundraisers, bazaars, bake sales, craft and garage sales as well as participating in the Wiggle Waggle Walkathon and the other events.
