HAIRI uses an interdisciplinary approach to understand and promote the health and well-being of both human and non-human animals in symbiotic relationships through research, education, and outreach. We envision HAIRI as a leading authority in human-animal interactions, advancing mutualistic relationships in families and industry. Further, we envision HAIRI as internationally recognized by academic and industry practitioners as one of the top research and education centers in the field of human-animal interaction, with a reputation that is highly regarded and trusted by scientists, pet owners and animal businesses.
