Host your own fundraiser

Thank you for your interest in raising funds for OMHS. Making a financial gift will give us the maximum flexibility to obtain exactly what food, medicine and other items we need, when we need them. Your fundraising efforts will ensure that all of the animals will continue to receive the top-notch care they deserve when faced with abandonment, neglect, injury or illness.

You are their champion!

If you’ve already got an event idea, great! If you need some inspiration, check out the suggestions below.

  • Lemonade/Hot Chocolate stand – Sell your favourite cold or hot beverages to raise funds in your community

  • A-thon of some kind – read-a-thon, skip-a-thon, dance-a-thon, bike-a-thon, marathon – your dedication will raise needed funds for the animals while you are doing something you love
  • Are you creative? Sell what you create – your talent translates to needed funds for the animals
  • Bake sale – your prowess in the kitchen equates to resources for the animals
