Rescue Animal is Suffering or in Danger

If an animal is in immediate danger or is suffering, please call the City of Ottawa Bylaw at 311 for rescue or pick-up. If it is safe to capture the animal in a box or carrier without handling the animal, you can also bring injured wildlife to the the Ottawa Humane Society, Municipal Animal Shelter, Lost and Found door, 245 West Hunt Club Rd (no need to call in advance). Please visit their website for operating hours. OHS will triage for us and we will pick up the animal from there if the animal can be rehabilitated.

If an animal’s life is in immediate distress as a result of cruelty or neglect, please contact the police at 911. You can then contact the Ontario Animal Protection Call Centre, who will investigate the incident, at 1-833-9ANIAML,,
