Support Pet-Friendly Policies
If we can make it easier to own a pet, more people will enjoy the health benefits they provide. From laws and regulations that allow service dogs in public establishments to funding for more dog parks to allowing pets in the workplace, there are many ways to make our communities more pet friendly.
Peer-reviewed research now 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 to change public policy and ensure as many people as possible enjoy the health benefits that companion animals provide.
