The month in pets: March

- April 5, 2021

With the days getting longer in March, in-person pet sightings have naturally been on the rise in the parks and on the streets. But we've still been chock-a-block with new creature friends to share on Pets of Dalhousie.

If you missed any of our profiles during the month, or just can't get enough, read on below for links to all of the animals we have featured. You'll find a 15-pet group profile from the Office of Research Services, a ball python and her housemates, plenty of fluffy felines and pups, and much much more.
