Two years ago today, the Ottawa Paw Pantry was officially introduced to the city.

We have been more successful than we could have ever imagined, and we can honestly say that we are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from volunteers, retailers, veterinary clinics and community partners.

Here are a few highlights from the past two years:

  • Almost 200 pets helped
  • Over 50,000 lbs of food distributed
    • To put that into perspective, here’s what else weighs that much!
      • 5 elephants
      • 29 moose
      • 226,750 blueberry muffins
      • 32,375 iPads
      • 50 grand pianos
      • 10,000 chihuahuas
  • 25+ partnerships formed to help us gather food donations across the city (psst. Find out where you can drop-off your donations)
  • We’ve grown from a mere 5 ft by 5 ft storage space to a whopping 10.5 ft by 17 ft! (That’s an extra 150+ feet we can now fill!)

A HUGE thank you to all of you who have helped make the Ottawa Paw Pantry the success it is today. We are proud to offer such a needed service to the Ottawa community and hope this is just the beginning.
