Dogs of Oakville

Now available for purchase!


Since 2011, local artist and pet photographer Maria Bell has been capturing the dogs and cats of Oakville through her beautiful series of books with 100% of the profits going directly to our shelter.

This year's book, created, designed and published by an incredible team including Russell Gonsalves, Jessica Champagne and Patricia Toth, is a warm and welcome reminder of how our beloved pets have helped us through a challenging and difficult year.

“Together” makes a wonderful holiday gift for your pet-loving friends and family.  There are three ways to purchase: online (pickup only) at the shelter or at one of our participating stores.


Get your copy today!  Books are $50. Limited quantities available.

When you purchase a book, you are not only helping the OMHS continue providing top-notch care to the vulnerable animals in our community, your name will be entered to win one of two gift baskets!
