About Pet Week
Hosted by the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), Pet Week on Capitol Hill brings the power of pets to Capitol Hill, delivering the message to our elected representatives that pets are important for human health and quality of life.
Pet Week features Members of Congress, industry leaders, the veterinary community, animal welfare advocates and research organizations, coming together to share information about the importance of pet ownership in America and the scientific evidence that shows how policies that strengthen the human-animal bond can improve wellbeing for both people and companion animals.
