Adoption tips for the holiday season

by | Campaigns Podcast |

The holidays are upon us! It’s all about iAdopt for the Holidays here at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. We want to share tips with you today about adopting during the holidays.

In this podcast, Senior Director of Shelter Health and Wellness, Dave Wilson, joins us to highlight tips you need to know as a pet owner during the holidays.

One of his main points? The biggest thing to think about, he says, is sources of stress. During the holidays there’s lots of excess energy and noise – so it’s important to make sure pets have a safety zone. This is so that they can have their space, away from excitement. For cats, this might be a little cat carrier, and for dogs could be a mud room or bathroom with their favourite items inside – treats and toys – to make it more comfortable.
