The Humane Society provides a wealth of animal care information to the public through humane education visits, public information awareness booths, participation in various volunteer programs and the multitude of services offered to the community. They provide stray animal shelter services to all 11 municipalities within the Ottawa-Carleton region, admitting approximately 7,000 stray animals each year.
The Spay/Neuter Clinic is a City-operated facility which provides dog and cat sterilization services. Spaying or neutering pets reduces the number of unwanted domesticated animals and the cost of animal control.
The Ottawa Veterinary Hospital has been in operation since 1967. Due to need for emergency services in the Ottawa area, the clinic was converted to a 24 hour emergency hospital that operates 7 days a week including holidays in 1978. We welcome referrals and transfers from other clinics, new clients, walk-ins and of course emergencies especially when your regular vet is closed.
