Contrary to old school thinking, the holiday season is the perfect time to introduce a new furry member into your family. Each year from November 1 to December 31, the Ontario SPCA and participating societies across Canada runs their iAdopt for the Holidays campaign (  with the goal of getting as many animals into new homes over the holiday season as possible. Regardless of where you live, with people having time off from work and being home together as a family, the holidays are a great time to welcome a new furry companion into your home. Visit your local shelter to take part and change an animal’s life!
