Canadian home improvement store Home Hardware is using moving boxes to help bring attention to abandoned pets in Québec.

Every July 1st in Québec, thousands of residents pack up and move out of their apartments. It’s called moving day, and it can make a city like Montreal chaotic. Even worse is the fact that every year, more than 1,600 pets are left behind by their moving owners.

This year Home Hardware decided to do something about it. They partnered with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to produce these unique moving boxes in the shapes of common household pets. The message is simple: if you move, don’t leave your pet behind. Created by john st., the light-hearted initiative is designed to bring awareness to this serious issue and raise money for the SPCA to help with the boost in abandoned pets.

Real animal boxes will collect donations near checkout in participating Home Hardware locations in the Montreal area in the weeks leading up to moving day.
