“Accessible is simply defined as available to as many pet guardians as possible. Accessible Spay/Neuter programs remove existing barriers to the availability of sterilization. Such programs include those that offer subsidized Spay/Neuter surgery, those that are high volume, high-quality clinics, and those that are able to bring clinics to the animals or vice versa.”

Human-Animal Bond

Positive human-animal relationships are good for us. The benefits extend beyond just companionship.

Research has shown that interacting with animals can have a positive impact on our mental and physical well-being. For instance, researchers have linked spending time with animals to:

  • Reduced levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Allergy prevention for children
  • Support for kids with autism
  • Assistance for trauma survivors suffering from PTSD
  • Increased social interaction
  • Increased opportunity for exercise and activities
  • Companionship and support for a longer and happier life
