  • Prepare your home and your pets’ environment

Download a free copy of Pet Meets Baby (PDF). Then email it to your friends and family who are welcoming a new infant, child or pet into their home. It’s a great way to help American Humane Association strengthen the bond between people and animals by keeping families intact — with their companion animals!

“Introducing a new baby to your family pet can be a beautiful thing — the bond that can develop between children and their pets is priceless if it is built on safe practices, mutual respect and love. Pet Meets Baby is a great resource I recommend to my clients, to make sure they know what to expect and how best to minimize the risks associated with introducing new family members — whether they have four legs or two.”

Benefits of Pets
Companion animals play a special role in our lives, and children raised with pets often have:

  • Higher self-esteem and self-confidence
  • More trusting relationships with others
  • Improved non-verbal communication skills

Children and pets — keep them together!
