Abstract

We’re all tied up in this together. That’s the message Dr. James Serpell wants us to understand. Dr. Serpell is the Marie A. Moore Professor of Humane Ethics and Animal Welfare and director of Penn Vet’s Center for the Interaction of Animals and Society. Dr. Serpell’s research was one of the earliest to describe the beneficial effects of pet ownership on human health.
