The human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and their animals, influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“Think about the feelings you have when you come home to a pet that is excited to see you.  Pets are non-judgmental and provide unconditional love, meaning, and joy to our lives.”

The relationship pet owners form with their animals can be emotional, psychological, and physical, according to Darling. Pets can help decrease loneliness, relieve stress and anxiety, and provide opportunities for exercise, play, and recreation.
