The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) has been chosen as one of the best animal therapy non-profits of 2017 by Healthline.com, one of the largest and fastest growing health information sites on the web.
“This honor boosts HABRI’s mission to establish the human-animal bond as an essential part of our health and wellness,” HABRI Executive Director Steven Feldman said. “It also serves as a seal-of-approval that shows HABRI is making a real difference for the health of both people and their pets.”
According to Healthline.com, it puts together its list with a focus on non-profits “actively working to educate, inspire, and support people while sharing the benefits of therapy animals,” and commended these organizations for being “dedicated to exploring and supporting the human-animal bond.”
“It is tremendously gratifying to see HABRI’s work to fund human-animal bond scientific research recognized in this way,” Feldman said. “HABRI also extends its congratulations to the other non-profit organizations recognized by healthline.com for providing animal therapy programs and services to people in need.”
