More To Life

How much is that doggy in the window? It's hard to resist those cute little kittens and puppies. But before you buy that pet, you should ask where it came from. Many people do not ask important questions before they purchase a pet and that keeps my next guests in business. Vicky Earle is the chief executive officer of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. And Amy White is from the Toronto Humane Society. She is here with a few of the hundreds of dogs and cats available for adoption there. If you have a teen in the house, you probably shake your head, thinking, "What on earth is happening inside that kid's head?" My next guest actually knows. I'm joined at the blackboard by Meg O'Mahoney. Meg teaches science at the University of Toronto Schools. She is in the second year of a teaching fellowship, and has been studying how kids learn. She's here to share her findings with us. This show contains an Imprint segment "Authors and Pets".
