The Center for Applied Ethology and Human-Animal Interaction was established in 1982 at Purdue University to study these relationships and to communicate its findings to scientists and the public. In 1997, the name was changed to Center for the Human-Animal Bond to reflect the relationship that exists between people and the animals that share this earth.

The Center is committed to expanding our knowledge of the interrelationships between people, animals, and their environment. The Center is concerned with all aspects of human-animal interaction and welfare including companion, farmed domestic species, and wildlife. An emphasis is placed on humane ethics in managing our living resources.
