Responsible Dog Owners of Canada would like to invite you to participate in the Fundscrip Fundraiser. The fundraiser will cost you nothing more than the price of a gift card - all you need to do is purchase a gift card and use it for a gift, or for yourself.

To join our fundraiser go to

Responsible Dog Owners of Canada organization will appear. Follow the instructions to place an order

Here is how the fundraiser works, according to FundScrip:

'The Basic Concept
Encourage supporters of your campaign to pay for their everyday expenses & gifts with gift cards bought from FundScrip. Each purchase automatically includes a donation to the campaign. The supporter isn't out of pocket, and they shop where they would normally shop.

Buy $100, Get $100
Buy cards at face value, get face value at the retailers - you lose nothing.

Shop As Usual
With cards from over 230 leading retailers, there's no need to change your shopping habits (
see list of retailers here).

Pay With Gift Cards
Pay with gift cards instead of credit/debit/cash for your everyday items & gifts.

Raise Funds
Each purchase automatically includes a donation for your group that can quickly add up over time.'


Thank you for your support.

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.

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.


Trick: Which hand holds the treat?


In addition to the Activity Pages for older kids, we have a new Kids version of our RDOC newsletter suitable for the younger ones.

Every year, in Spring & Fall, we hold Park Clean-Up Days in Ottawa area dog parks. During the morning we hand out bags & gloves to dog owners, who are the ones who do all the work picking up the garbage etc. Their reward is a much cleaner park, & their pups get dog cookies. Thank you to everybody who participates in these events.

List of Fall 2019 Clean-Up Days



RDOC would like to thank The Pet Shoppe (4772 Bank St, Unit 3A, in Findlay Creek) for donating dog cookies and poop bags for our Park Clean-Up events.  

We would also like to thank the City of Ottawa GLAD Cleaning the Capital Campaign for donating garbage bags and gloves. Our dogs are very grateful
