The Pet Effect Releases “Adopt a Human” Video

It’s, well, downright adorable. And the also-released “Comrade” video is compelling in featuring a service dog with a veteran who suffers from PTSD. The Pet Effect is an educational campaign to raise awareness of the health benefits of pets. The website features humorous and serious videos, social media posts and other assets that veterinarians can share with their clients to engage in a positive dialog about the human-animal bond. As Steve Feldman, executive director of HABRI (the Human Animal Bond Research Initiative), noted “Research shows that when pet owners understand that their pet’s health is intrinsically linked to their own, they are more likely to bring their pet to the veterinarian for regular check-ups. HABRI is proud to be a part of The Pet Effect campaign!”
