OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Humane Society's annual "Wiggle Waggle Walk and Run" fundraiser has been cancelled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. "To ensure care for the animals, the OHS is turning the event into an online only fundraising event so that would-be walkers and runners are encouraged to raise money with their own fundraising campaigns," the Humane Society said in a press release Tuesday. "It’s sad that we need to cancel the Wiggle Waggle Walk and Run for 2020," said OHS President & CEO, Bruce Roney. "We’re really counting on past participants to take part in virtual fundraising to provide life-saving care for the animals in the walk’s absence." This year, the campaign will be online.
