As our family approaches the end of one year and the beginning of the next we always take stock of where we’ve been and where we’re headed and that of course includes caring for our fur angels. This past year has been a hard one for the animal kingdom and the natural world we share with them. A year full of triumphs and tragedies, hopes fulfilled and dreams shattered.
December 30, 2013, VANCOUVER – Every year many animal companions, and often their human guardians, suffer during the holidays from situations that could have been easily prevented says The Humane Society of Canada (HSC).
The kindness and generosity of caring people like you means The Humane Society of Canada can help even more animals during this Christmas Season and the Holidays. On behalf of the animals a heartfelt thanks.
December 27, 2013, TORONTO – Family, friends, parties, decorations, food. Christmas can be a wonderful time of year. However, many of the same things that make the holiday season an enjoyable time for humans, make it a dangerous time for pets.
Just in time for Christmas and the Holidays, "Snoopy", the world's most famous dog, Global Television, Paramount Home Video and The Humane Society of Canada have teamed up to send people a light hearted message about adopting pets at this festive time of year, according to Al Hickey, Western Regional Director for The Humane Society of Canada (HSC).
October 31, 2013, VANCOUVER – Halloween is a lot of fun for children, but it can be a terrifying time, and even a dangerous one, for many pets says The Humane Society of Canada (HSC). The national animal charity is asking that people ensure that their animal companions don't suffer during Halloween.
