Our Pet List

Our Featured Pet...

Jazmin is a lovely longhaired torti who found the shelter too stressful and refused to eat anything there, she is currently in a foster home but would love to find a home of her own. Jazmin is a very quiet, tidy cat who is easy to look after. She's about 2 years old and already spay. Once settled in she adjusted well to living with other cats and wouldn't mind a home with one or 2 feline friends. While she is affectionate and loves to be pet she is indpendent and doesn't often seek alot of attention, which would make her a great second cat for someone looking to adopt a cat that is less "in your face" cuddly.
Contact Siobhan at (613) 725-3166 ext: 360 to set up a meeting with Jazmin if you think she might be the right kitty for you.


Who We Are

The OCR is a small group of volunteers and OHS staff who help place cats that are harder for the shelter to find homes for, have special needs or do not adapt to a shelter enviroment.
Many of the cats live in a foster home untill an adoptive home can be located, however some are at the shelter in thier adoption area waiting for that special someone to come in and adopt them.

The OSR is run by volunteers who are interested in rehoming siamese and related breeds who have become homeless or stray, while some of the cats looking for homes are from the OHS they might also come from other locations such as other rescue groups, owners, or other shelters.

Tabi Cat Persian Rescue is a rescue run by one person and a few foster homes, her main focus is rescueing persian and himalayans (and some mixes), however she has been known to also have taken in other breeds or cats for adoption that have been in need of a place to go untill they found a forever home on a very limited bases. The cats in Persian rescue come in all ages from adults to kittens.
