A Pioneer of Canadian Culture Dies

Jacques Bensimon, former head of the National Film Board, passed away on Sunday. Jacques had astonishing generosity of spirit. No matter if you were an executive, a junior producer, the editor on the night shift, or a new international contact or a Board Member, Jacques spent his lifetime leading and guiding creatives and broadcast executives alike towards one goal: the preservation of Canadian culture.

Adoft-a-HuffPet: Father, Son And Two Brothers Seek New Families

Here are two wonderful pairs of dogs that are in a rural Ontario shelter and as a result, they're not having much luck meeting their new families. Let's start with Mork & Teddy, who are a lovely German-Shepherd-Rottweiler father-and-son team. Then there's also Riff & Raff, a pair of nine-year-old Black-Lab-Rottweiler brothers.

Adopt-a-HuffPet: These Stray Pooches Need a Home

T.J. is a senior Chow Chow with a b-u-tiful cream coat who was brought in as a stray to a shelter in British Columbia. His owner never claimed him. Katie was found as a stray so we have no history on her. Although a senior, don't let her age fool you. She has lots of spunk, and a sharp brain.

Many Shelter Animals Face the Needle, But You Can Make a Difference

I woke up to a full inbox: 66 cats to be euthanized at an Ontario pound, 70 dogs in peril in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. All scheduled for the fatal needle Tuesday morning. Canadians, please don't breed or buy while shelter pets die; please make adoption your first option; please take the time to find out how your municipality deals with pet overpopulation. I guarantee that if you knew, you would be shocked into action.

Adopt-A-HuffPet: These Furballs Need Homes!

My name is Little Jack! I love to walk with my favourite stuffy in my mouth and really like all the attention our volunteers give me -- I especially love belly rubs and snuggles. I like most dogs but do not like cats! I promise to be a very good boy and would really like a quiet home and where I can get all the love and snuggles I want!

Adopt-a-HuffPet: Fall in Love With Sheena and Mitzi

Sheena was found wandering the streets, scared and alone. No one cared about this giant beauty. Mitzi is a sweet, cuddly senior, whose long-time caregiver recently passed away. At 14 years, she has some stiff joints (who doesn't at such an age?) and needs to be the only cat so that she can have all the love and attention she deserves!

Adopt-a-HuffPet: Two Canine BFFs Would Love a Home Together!

If you think having a bonded pair is double the work, think again! Adopting a bonded pair can actually be less work. They play with each other, and keep each other company when you're not home. The family who surrendered Sky and Tyson are devastated to think that the dogs may be separated.

Adopt-a-HuffPet: Julius, Maya and Livia

Maya is a brown-striped tabby female, who was born in the spring of 2002. That October, her owner dropped a box over a bridge with her, a rabbit and three unweaned kittens in it. All but Maya found homes. She was adopted once but returned as she cannot adapt to a new home without Livia -- a black-and-white female cat.
