Resource Center on The Link, and American Humane's new PAWS(TM)

Program, which helps domestic violence shelters accommodate their

residents' pets onsite to provide comfort and safety for battered

women, their children and their pets.

In broadening its leadership in the human-animal bond field, American Humane recently joined with the University of Denver's Graduate School of Social Work to establish the American Humane Endowed Chair, one of the first in the nation created to explore the expanding field of animal-assisted social work and research the bond between people and animals. Earlier, American Humane provided some of the seed money to establish the University of Denver's Institute for Human-Animal Connection, whose mission is to conduct research, training and education from a human-service and animal-welfare perspective.

"We are now conducting a national search for a senior director of the new division," Wheatley said. "We are certain we will attract the driving force necessary to propel the knowledge and understanding of the human-animal bond to a higher plane."
