People have enjoyed the benefits of living with companion animals for thousands of years. Our relationship with pets stretches back at least 12,000 years and today pets are regarded as valued members of the family.  In fact, over 60% of Australian households own a pet and there is a great deal of research that shows how we benefit from the relationships we have with companion animals.

  • You might want to use a section as a blog topic or facebook post.

Hi Judy, did anyone receive a hard copy of the poster? Cheers Deb
Judy @ Jun 15th 2015 6:42pm
Hi Deb, I didn't hear back from anyone to say they hadn't received it so I'm not really sure. My contact no longer works for PIAS so I'm not able to check with him but you may be able to contact them directly? Regards Judy
