Your pet wants to retire with you. See our Retirement homes survey.


We would like to thank everybody who participated in the 'Going to the Dogs' fundraiser. It was a great success. The money we raised will be used to enhance our educational programs and to encourage responsible dog ownership.

A special thank you goes to all our donors and volunteers. We could not have done this fundraiser without your help.


RDOC Walkathon - The event will take place between Saturday Sept. 15th and Friday Sept. 22nd 2018. Each of the participants will walk an hour a day for 7 days.

For Kids

RDOC proudly announces the publication of our updated activity book on Dog Safety, "Fido, Friend or Foe?", which is available on our website as a pdf, in both French and English. There are lots of colouring pages that can be printed from the pdf file, as well as important safety information to be aware of when children and dogs are together.


Which hand holds the treat?

Don't forget to visit the Kids Activity Pages on our website. We have some easy tricks to teach your dog, fun puzzles to solve, and pictures to colour.

We also have lots of links for parents about keeping children safe around dogs.


Ottawa Area Park Cleanups

We would like to thank all the people who came out to help with the clean-up at Bruce Pit, Conroy Pit and Stittsville Park.

A very special thank you goes to Kathleen Edwards, owner of Quitters Coffee shop in Stittsville ( who provided coffee, hot chocolate and pastries for our hard working Stittsville clean-up crew.

Our dogs are very happy to be able to walk, run, play ball and have fun in a clean park. Our dog owners are happy too.


Thank You

Gabe Parent, winner of our first Safety Award.

Thank you Gabe for pointing out that  “You shouldn't over-tire/over-stimulate your dog or puppy with too much play. It makes dogs grumpy and puppies feisty and bite.”
