When my husband and I moved into a place of our own, we knew that we wanted to share our lives with a furry family member. We decided that adopting a cat would be the best option for us. We adopted our cat, Lily (6 years old), from a humane society in 2009 and she instantly brought great joy to us. As soon as we got the news of a baby entering our lives, we knew we had to start early in teaching Lily that a new family member will be joining us. Here's how we did it.

Old dogs, like old people, might slobber a bit more. They may not be as swift and they may not be as quick to learn new tricks, but like a favourite grandpa or old aunt, they offer an unconditional love that's just about the most special thing a pet lover could ask for.

As pet owners, we all believe deep down on a visceral level, that having a dog, cat, bird, fish, or other pet in our home makes us feel better and healthier on a daily basis. The presence of a loving animal in our lives makes us smile more often, feel more socially connected, and forces us to be more active and spend more time outdoors.

Everything was planned. The collection of pills, the letters, the dowry of cameras, books, and music; all neatly placed on my to-do list. And then my pug, with a snort and a twitch, saved my life.

Quebec's Bill 54 Falls Short Of Protecting All Animals

Until this law was passed, there was no distinction between a car and a cat in terms of legal rights. Anyone who has ever lived with a pet knows that animals experience emotions and feel both physical and psychological pain, but this is the first time in North America that these basic truths have been entrenched in law.

The dog appears to be well fed and in no way unhealthy. However, Buddy is obviously lacking human contact, daily walks and most importantly love and attention. His owners ignore him each day and show zero concern for him or the neighbours. In their eyes, and with City approval, they're doing nothing wrong.

I am hoping that these two losses prepare the boys enough that they know there is no shame in crying, in openly grieving. Nor is there shame in laughing at the goofy, silly and funny memories. That grief comes in waves. That part of loving is sometimes letting go but that you get up, dust yourself off and continue on with your life.

Animal suffering is tough for anyone to stomach. It doesn't matter if you've been on the frontlines of animal welfare all your life because it never gets easier to look at. But what about cases of extreme abuse, where cruelty is so unthinkable that most people can't even comprehend its existence? Just weeks ago, the Humane Society International Animal Rescue team travelled to Yulin to expose this cruel festival to the world. What they saw was horrific -- dogs and cats crammed in cages, awaiting the same fate as the dogs and cats being slaughtered in front of them.
