The Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS) is launching the first ever International Human-Animal Bond Day, with our US partner the Human-Animal Bond Association (HABA), which falls on 8th November.

This is a dedicated day upon which to recognise, highlight and celebrate our animal companions, and the wonderful relationships we can build with them.

We should also reflect about those for whom such a relationship is not possible, for example those living in housing that is not pet friendly, animals in shelters awaiting their forever homes, and those living in care facilities that have not yet embraced Animal Assisted Interventions.

Our organisations will continue to advocate for greater recognition of the bond, for more opportunities for people and animals to benefit from a bond relationship, and for greater implementation of animal care and welfare education and for training of the professions about their role in human-animal interactions.

Through our work in the bond, we will continue to make the world a better place for people and animals.
