About PAWS

With a grass roots and hands-on approach, we work directly with some of the most vulnerable individuals within the Ottawa community.  Many of these people are homeless and their companion animals are often their lifeline, and the only family that they have.  However, most lack the financial capacity to access basic animal care services such as quality food, critical life-saving surgery and dignified end of life care. 

We are committed to providing practical and financial assistance within the Ottawa community to those who need it most. Help for these animals is life-changing, and with our dedicated supporters, volunteers, local businesses and collaborative partners, we can help these animals obtain the supportive care they so desperately need and deserve.
