Do we know all there is to know about animal welfare? Not yet, but we're getting there — with our pioneering Animal Welfare Research Institute.
We bring together doctors, veterinarians, psychologists, animal behaviorists, nutritionists, computer scientists and other experts to find answers to questions like:
- Why are so many cats and dogs abandoned or given away?
- Why is cancer the number-one cause of death in dogs over the age of 2?
- Why is obesity a growing problem for both pets and children?
American Humane Association's Animal Welfare Research Institute:
- Creates citizen scientists of pet owners, care providers and animal lovers.
- Funds innovative science and training programs for animal welfare.
- Trains veterinary scientists to meet the changing needs of our world.
- Connects the dots between the well-being of animals and that of people.
- Puts ANIMALS and CHILDREN first.
