Moving Day is an annual tradition in the province of Quebec, Canada. Every July 1st thousands of residents pack up and move out of their apartments. Less well known is that every year more than 1,600 pets are left behind by their moving owners.
Home improvement store Home Hardware decided to do something about it. They partnered with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to produce unique moving boxes in the shapes of common household pets. The message is simple: if you move, don’t leave your pet behind. The boxes are designed by agency john st.. Real animal boxes will collect donations near checkout in participating Home Hardware locations in the weeks leading up to moving day.
