Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI)

Grants averaging $35,000 to $45,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations and academic institutions to research the health benefits of pet ownership, as well as animal-assisted therapy and activity, both for the humans and animals involved. Research categories may include healthy aging, mental health and wellness, and child health and development.
The vision of the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) is for the human-animal bond to be universally embraced as an essential element of human wellness. To that end, HABRI works to establish the vital role of companion animals in the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities.
HABRI is interested in proposals that involve a variety of companion animals (e.g. small animals, dogs, cats, fish, and horses). Proposals should have a strong theoretical framework and focus on innovative approaches to studying the health effects of companion animals on humans within the following broad categories:
-Child Health and Development
-Mental Health and Wellness
Evaluation will be on study design, capabilities of investigators, adequacy of facilities, cost-effective yet realistic budget, and potential for impact on the way mental and physical health conditions are diagnosed, treated or otherwise understood. Adherence to the highest standards of human and animal care and welfare is essential. All funded studies must undergo IRB and/or IACUC review and approval.
HABRI does not pay salary support for PIs, co-investigators or other collaborators (which includes consultants) if they have full-time faculty appointments. However, HABRI does allow post-doctoral fellows applying as the principal investigator to apply for salary support up to 20% of their full-time appointment.
