CELEBRATION of the intrinsic existence of a bond between animals and humans.

International Human-Animal Bond Day

International Human Animal Bond Day is celebrated annually on November 8 in association with the Society for Companion Animal Studies.

The Human Animal Bond Association (HABA) is a group of like-minded people who care for other animals. HABA’s mission is to advocate, celebrate and educate about our connection with the natural world including our companion animals and why that’s important to all of us.

On International Human Animal Bond Day—and every day—join us in elevating the human animal bond by sharing your stories on social media with the hashtags #IHABDay #HABA #HumanAnimalBond.
