Faculty, students, and others affiliated with The Center are involved in a number of research activities. Ongoing interdisciplinary research on the health benefits of interacting with pets and the effect of animal-assisted interventions, like our renowned Dogs On Call Program at VCU Health, contribute to the field of Human-Animal Interaction. Our studies are published in peer-reviewed scholarly journals and are frequently cited in the media.
