A Commitment to Community
At Out of This World Plumbing, we aim to make a difference in our local community.
We are excited to support Canadian businesses, especially those near us in the Ottawa area, such as bakeries, breweries, artists, printing companies, charity shops and more! We also love to support international companies and individual creators too!
Helping Our Furry Friends
Animal welfare is a major aspect of our team values and vision. We’ve had booths at the Ottawa Wiggle Waggle Walkathon with Ottawa Humane Society for a few years in the past to support the local dog community (as well as the occasional cat!).
When available, team members from Out Of This World volunteer for animal charities in the area. We love to support stray animal shelters and sanctuaries, home pet-sitting businesses, animal photographers and really any company that donates and/or aids in the health and safety of animals!
Dave is on the Board of Directors for OSCATR (Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue). As the office at Out Of This World is fairly spacious, every few months we have volunteers from OSCATR come to make cat shelters for strays during the cold months. (pics)
And, if you haven’t seen it already, we have two lovely office cats—Jake and Garfield—that live, sleep and play at Out of This World Plumbing!
