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


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

  • click on 'support a group'
  • under 'enter group invitation code' type in 'WMGWDR' and click on 'search'
  • 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.

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
