AKC Canine Heath Foundation awards shelter-medicine grant to reduce dogs surrendered to shelters


According to Dr. Bernard Rollins, professor of philosophy at Colorado State University and a member of the Human-Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI) Central Editorial Board, “Dr. Wynne’s research is a new and fresh approach to the issue of owner surrender. What is being proposed is that people will bond far more successfully with animals, and be loath to return them to shelters, if persons and their animals jointly participate collaboratively in some activity – in this case, a professionally directed exercise program.”
