October 31, 2017, 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.

"While animal protection organizations have been effective in getting the word out about protecting black cats at Halloween, we need to be as effective about warning people with pets about more common Halloween hazards," states HSC Chairman & CEO, Michael O’Sullivan.

AUGUST 31, 2017, TORONTO - A constellation of stars from science fiction, movies, television and comic books kicked off the annual FAN EXPO CANADA extravaganza being held at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto with more than 100,000 fans expected to attend this four day event which is the third largest of its kind in North America.  The event is being held at the Metro Convention Centre and runs from August 31-September 3.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and the families affected by Hurricane Harvey,” says Humane Society of Canada Chairman & CEO, Michael O’Sullivan.

“In the aftermath of natural disasters, The Humane Society of Canada is also asking people to remember animals, often the forgotten victims in such troubled times.” The animal charity says that while there are hundreds of relief agencies which continue to work to help people, there are only a relatively small handful of groups working to help animals.
