Benefits of Animal & Human Bond

Stress Reduction

  • Spending time with animals has a calming effect on humans and helps reduce stress levels

  • Studies have shown that interactions with animals can lower cortisol (a stress hormone) and increase the production of endorphins (feel-good hormones) in the human body

Emotional Support

  • Animals provide unconditional love, companionship, and emotional support to humans

  • They can be great sources of comfort during times of stress, loneliness, or sadness

  • The presence of an animal can alleviate anxiety and reduce feelings of depression
