The Pet-Human Bond | Carol Novello
Author and former CEO of Humane Society Silicon Valley, Carol Novello, discusses peer-reviewed research and stories of how the pets humans rescue from shelters actually rescue their human companions. While on the outside, it appears that the human is providing the help; in actuality, the animal helps the human in measurable, life-enhancing ways. Carol, who wrote the bestselling book, Mutual Rescue, shares evidence that pets improve our physical and mental health. By bringing pets into their lives, people have lost weight, recovered from chronic disease, and reduced their loneliness and depression.
