The Centers for the Human-Animal Bond (CHAB) 2021 conference is being held virtually on 4th Nov. Registration is free, and provides opportunities for engaging with plenaries and panels on human-animal interaction. The programme includes a talk from Prof. Daniel Mills, from the University of Lincoln on ‘Pet Related Activities And Human Well-being: The Helpful And The Harmful’.
The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and Mars Petcare,
with support from a broad Consortium of partners, today announced the
publication of three papers in the open-access Journal Animals, part of a
special issue focused on the role of companion animals during the COVID-19
pandemic, Social Isolation and the Roles That Animals Play in Supporting the
Lives of Humans: Lessons for COVID19. The papers focus on the role of
human-animal interaction (HAI) in helping to alleviate loneliness and social
isolation during the pandemic.
Authors are invited to submit articles for the special edition of the Human-Animal Interaction Bulletin on pertinent aspects of hospice/palliative care, euthanasia, or grief/loss related to companion animals.
