Animal Welfare - Human Animal Bond Committee

The Animal Welfare-Human Animal Bond Committee accumulates information regarding the responsibility of the Student AVMA regarding issues related to the welfare of animals and the bond between animals and people. The goal of the committee is to disseminate this wealth of knowledge to all Student Chapters of the AVMA. One committee member represents SAVMA by serving on the AVMA Human Animal Bond Committee and another serves as a contact to the Animal Welfare Division of the AVMA. The committee also honors two SAVMA members that demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of the human-animal bond and the welfare of animals via an annual essay contest.
