The Animals & Society Institute created Human-Animal Relationship Awareness week in 2016, celebrated annually during the second full week in November, to honor relationships between human and other animals.
ASI felt that, as non-human animals become ever more important in the lives of people around the world, we should highlight some of the critical topics surrounding our relationships with other animals. Many people look to their companion animals for love and support, but often don’t consider the other animals with whom we share the planet—including wild animals, animals used in agriculture, animals used in medicine, and animals used to support human activities, for example.
Throughout the week we focus on a number of important issues relevant to the human-animal relationship.
