Canadian Retropets

Was there a lovable fur-ever friend in your past? An incorrigible canine or bunny bestie? Send us a photo and a short description of your retropet and you could see them published in Canada’s History magazine.

Posted April 12, 2021

In the August-September 2021 issue of Canada’s History, we featured a story about famous Canadian “retropets.” However, we also wanted to highlight the unsung fur babies of the past (feathered and scaled companions are also welcome). We invite you to send us a photo and a brief story about your retropet and will post your entry on our website. Entry form below.
