There's no doubt that pets can be a huge source of comfort and joy. They snuggle with us on the couch, accompany us on outdoor adventures, and they eat everything we accidentally drop on the floor which is like having a super cute Roomba in the house.

According to a survey conducted by ROYALE, 1 in 6 Canadians welcomed a new cat or dog into their home since the pandemic began.

So, if that's you and you're looking for things to get your new furry friend, we've got you covered.
