Ottawa Paw Pantry

Helping to keep the paws in the family, by filling furry bellies in challenging times.

The Ottawa Paw Pantry is the area’s dedicated non-profit pet food resource and was established to help prevent the abandonment or surrender of animals when their families cannot afford to feed them.

When your pets have become extensions of your family, you want nothing but the best for them. Giving up a family pet because you can’t provide food is a very difficult experience for both the humans and the animal.

The Ottawa Paw Pantry provides temporary food assistance to qualifying low income pet owners who are currently unable to afford food for their pets and may be forced to give up their pets without food assistance.

Client information

The Ottawa Paw Pantry is a 100% volunteer-run, donation-based organization. We offer a monthly pet food support program for an initial term of 6 months.

Please note that due to lack of human resources, we cannot offer emergency food services.

We are sad to announce that due to an extremely high volume of applicants, we have decided to close applications until further notice. We are working tirelessly to contact those already on the waitlist to provide support as quickly as possible, but cannot guarantee a time-frame for approval.

Volunteer Information

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not looking for more volunteers at this time. Please check back frequently as we will be updating this page as the public health situation evolves.
