Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers from nonprofit organizations or academic institutions for studies on the health benefits of pet companionship. Proposals related to current societal concerns, including the health crisis, are encouraged. Research focus areas include healthy aging, mental health and physical wellness, and child health and development.
In an effort to help address larger societal challenges, proposals that have potential to impact current public health crises or issues at the forefront of public concern are welcomed. Topics include (but are not limited to) impacts on diverse and underrepresented populations, social isolation and loneliness, suicide prevention, addiction, trauma and/or post-traumatic stress, obesity, and heart health.
While HABRI is interested in studies that focus on the impacts of interactions with dogs, in the interest of further contributing to the scientific field of human-animal interaction, HABRI welcomes studies that focus on interactions with other pet species, which may include (but are not limited to) cats and small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and fish) and horses.
Pet Partners, the leading therapy animal organization in the United States, has partnered with HABRI with the mission of improving human health and well-being through the power of the human-animal bond. This partnership allows for additional funding for research to investigate the health, education, and wellness outcomes of animal-assisted interventions (AAI), both for the people and animals involved.
