Feral Cat Population Control: Discover what the OHS is doing and what you can do to help

While the community rallied to help the OHS during its internal cat population crisis in August, outside the shelter, the plight of feral cats remains dire. Thousands of cats are living nasty, brutish and short lives in dozens of feral colonies across the city. Sadly, most could never live indoors despite our best efforts to socialize them. They have never lived with humans and so have never learned to trust them. Read the full story here

Buddy & Belle: Abbie

At the end of July, a four-month-old kitten arrived at the Ottawa Humane Society in urgent need of help. This homeless kitten had been attacked by a dog. She had one eyeball hanging from its socket and was covered in blood. The OHS emergency technician who rushed her to the clinic named her Abbie.

Please help Abbie – read her story and make a donation today.
