Foster volunteers needed by the animals

The need for more foster volunteers continues at the Ottawa Humane Society to address the shelter’s growing animal population and help homeless pets find their forever homes.

“Foster volunteers make a huge difference for the animals,” explained Bruce Roney, OHS President & CEO. “Foster volunteers increase the OHS’s capacity for care and help homeless animals receive some much needed TLC.”

172 animals are currently placed with OHS foster volunteers and many more animals are waiting for a foster placement. Since the summer, the number of animals needing a foster home has remained high and is likely to stay that way without additional support.

“We need more people to give their time to help Ottawa’s animals,” said Roney. “We provide all of the tools, supplies and training a foster volunteer needs, and they supply a loving, temporary home for an animal in need.”

Anyone interested in making a difference for Ottawa’s animals by joining the foster volunteer program should visit the OHS’s website or email for more information.
