Innovative spay and neuter program producing results and growing demand in city

Walk into Paws for Thought Boutique for Pets and at first glance it looks like a charming pet shop. The three resident cats and dog are happy to show you around the shop filled with locally made pet items and art. But the building in Winnipeg’s North End is much more. It’s a hub for pet support and provides a service that is almost unheard of in Canada: cat spay and neuter surgeries for five dollars.

Meatless Monday: Lentil and Wild Rice Tourtiere

Since Christmas falls on a Monday this year, I thought it would be a great idea to give you a meatless spin on this traditional dish that you can share and enjoy with your … Continued
