Date:4/29/2008

DENVER, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Humane Association today announced it has established a new division, the Human-Animal Bond Division, to further enhance and expand mankind's understanding of the power, the implications and the benefits of the connection between people and animals. The new group complements and provides a formal bridge between the organization's existing Animal Protection Division and its Children's Division, both of which have been in existence for more than 130 years.

Related to the formation of the new division, American Humane also plans to convene a national summit on the human-animal bond, and the organization will explore formation of an animal-assisted therapy coalition involving numerous other independent programs.

"Americans are demanding more research, training and information on the positive impact of the human-animal bond, as well as how to prevent the negative impact of what we call The Link," said Marie Belew Wheatley, president and CEO of American Humane. "Significant quantitative evidence exists that proves the powerful healing potential of animal-assisted therapy on people's lives.
