Find pet-care advice or simply share your love for pets! Benefits of having a pet include: boosting physical activity, improving cardiovascular health and companionship. You may be able to purchase a pet from a well-established source. Consider getting glamorous and attend pet showings.

Perhaps you are about to adopt a pet from a local shelter. Join a local dog-walking group or attend pet training classes at your local pet store.

If you want to spend time with animals but you are not able to keep a pet, consider volunteering at a local shelter, house-sit for someone or become a dog walker!

If you have a pet and are having trouble caring for it, contact your local community centre for options. There is dog care support available for Seniors through Elderdog Canada. They provide care, food and grooming assistance!
