To celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, we’re reposting one of our podcasts from a few years ago, highlighting the human-animal bond and the scientific research behind it.

Steve Feldman, executive director of the Human-Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI) spoke with us on Skype about this amazing foundation and the research they’re conducting. We learn why pets are good for children, for people with mental illnesses, and the rest of us too!

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
