Support Pet-Friendly Policies
If we can make it easier to own a pet or access the human-animal bond, we can help create healthier, happier individuals, families and communities, and healthier pets too. From laws and regulations that allow service dogs in public establishments to funding for more dog parks to public policies such as allowing pets in the workplace and in rental housing, there are many ways to make our communities more pet friendly.
Peer-reviewed research demonstrates that pet ownership belongs in the same wellness category as diet and exercise – evidence that clearly supports policy action as a matter of public health. Yet, there is no comprehensive public policy in place to support the health benefits of the human-animal bond.
HABRI needs your help. Lend your voice to change public policy and ensure as many people as possible enjoy the health benefits that companion animals provide.
