The coronavirus pandemic has had devastating effects on the music industry, but there is one group benefitting from all the tour cancellations: pets. With almost no shows taking place across the country, musicians are spending a whole lot more time at home with their cats and dogs.

To celebrate our favourite musicians and their furry friends, we put out the call for photos of Canadian musicians with their pets. Even though so many people are self-isolating at the moment, we can take comfort in the fact that these musicians have some seriously adorable animals to keep them company.

Scroll down to see artists like Wolf Parade, Tegan and Sara, Kathleen Edwards, Drake, the Weeknd, Born Ruffians, Sarah HarmerLights, Said the Whale, Hawksley Workman, iskwē and many more with their fluffiest family members.
