Our Love of Animals

Over the years, my wife and I have adopted and cared for animals both within our circle of family and friends who have pets in Canada and during our travels abroad—everywhere from Morocco to Thailand.

We have enjoyed the company of rescued pets, visited elephant and bird sanctuaries, and even volunteered at an animal hospital, rescue center, and sanctuary in Udaipur, India last summer called Animal Aid Unlimited.

At the beginning of 2019, we had a five-month stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia where my wife volunteered with a yoga teacher training program and retreat center. And there we adopted two curious and somewhat affectionate cats—one of them named Ginger—pictured napping above.

Red Cat Media

So, with our affinity for animals, it was fitting that I ‘ve had the opportunity to work with an online publisher called Red Cat Media. Their aim is to “provide balanced, objective, and well researched answers, to the questions that people ask about their pets online” and they “are passionate about improving standards in pet welfare and helping people to enjoy the animals whose lives they share.”

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

―Mahatma Gandhi
