What is the human-animal bond?

The human-animal bond goes beyond companionship. It refers to the strong positive interaction that exists between humans and animals - the special bond that actually enhances human quality of life. Promoting human-animal interaction leads to positive benefits for all members of the community.

Why is it so important to promote and celebrate this bond?

The positive impact of the human-animal bond is real - and is backed by scientific data, case studies and hard research that validate the therapeutic effects of human-animal relationships. These benefits can be emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual - and are created when an animal's antics cause us to laugh, a beloved pet welcomes us home, or an animal aids us in therapy. Fostering opportunities to promote education and experience that nurture this bond is the common goal of the membership of PAWSitive InterAction. We challenge Atlanta to think PAWSitive! -- and make a positive connection for themselves, their friends, their family, their neighbors.
