Animal Programming at Senior Centers
Read the report

NISC surveyed senior centers, in partnership with the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) to gather promising practices related to animals and the health of older adults in senior centers. The information gathered was shared in a recent NISC webinar. This webinar broke down the results of our survey on pet policies in senior centers, which took place in the fall of 2017 in partnership with the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI). Ways to include pets and pet therapy programs at your center were highlighted.

To learn more about pet policies and best practices, please read the report that we released that summarizes the findings and offers examples to many situations that you may face at your senior center.
