The study of human-animal interactions and relationships is an extremely interesting topic. For a long time these relationships have been greatly prized among people such that they have accepted the animals as a part of their lives. In the United States, certain groups of people have accepted them as a family members and, as such, they play an important role in their daily routine (Holley, Lynn C.; Risley-Curtiss, Christina; Wolf, Shepard). These pets offer them unconditional love, support when they are alone, personal safety and security, and a way to fight certain medical conditions such as depression (Alan M. Beck' and N. Marshall Meyers). People with varied ethnic backgrounds, such as Indians, African Americans, Hispanics, and those of Spanish origin, have different relationships with companion animals (Holley, Lynn C.; RisleyCurtiss, Christina; Wolf, Shepard). It is very interesting to study these differences in relationships. In order to find these differences, we have developed a short survey that will help us identify why certain groups prefer to keep companion animals whereas others choose against it. In addition to this, we will be able to differentiate those who keep pets in accordance to their likes and dislikes.
