The history of Animals’ Voice Magazine and Pawdcast

by | Interesting |

If you can believe it, this year the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is celebrating its 150th anniversary! As we reflect on this milestone anniversary, we are sharing some fun details and explaining what the organization does and how it operates. Today we want to share some history about our Animals’ Voice Magazine-turned paw-dcast! 

Animals’ Voice Magazine 

It has been many years since the Ontario SPCA began publishing content to support animal wellness in the province.  

Pictured here is an example of The Animals’ Voice magazine which was published as early as 1930. This particular example is from back in the winter of 1965! 

The magazine was a resource to share updates about animal welfare and evolved into a “pawdcast” and blog over the years. 

Creating a podcast 

After a successful run as a magazine, Animals’ Voice efforts were turned to a new avenue of communications: podcasts! Launching in 2013, Animals’ Voice Pawdcast covered a wide range of topics. These included animal care tips, interviews with fellow animal wellness advocates from organizations in other provinces and the United States, as well as stories of the incredible impact animals have on people.
