Weekend What's Up- Events for Animal Lovers

It’s a busy weekend for animal rescues across Ottawa! From Thanks for Giving events to pet photoshoots, we’ve compiled a list of fun events across Ottawa which you can attend with your pet, or go to meet your new furry BFF and the local rescues that work hard year-round to save them and other animals in need.

What is Thanks for Giving?

For the entire month of October, Pet Valu locations across Canada have been collecting food and monetary donations for local animal rescues. If you can't make it out to an event near you, you can contribute online by simply sharing their #Share4Rescue posts on Facebook and Twitter or by donating directly to the rescues. Each share equates to one cup of pet food donated.
