Kent Pet Group, makers of World’s Best Cat Litter, recently became an official supporter of the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and its research on the benefits of human-animal interaction.
Kent Pet Group joins over 25 other companies and organizations supporting HABRI. Michael Eversmeyer, President of Kent Pet Group, stressed the importance of supporting research into the human-animal bond.
“Kent Pet Group is proud to support HABRI and its mission to advance human-animal bond research. Kent Pet Group understands the importance of advancing science and uses scientific innovation every day to discover new ways to use natural ingredients and develop better pet products. Supporting the science behind the human-animal bond made perfect sense.”

In recent years, a number of studies have demonstrated that pets have a beneficial effect on a wide range of aspects of human health and wellbeing, including cardiovascular health, child development, healthy aging, depression and anxiety, as well as other forms of mental and physical health. The benefits don’t just go one way; a recent HABRI-conducted survey of 2,000 pet owners indicated that a greater awareness and understanding of the scientific research on the human-animal bond motivates pet owners to take better care of their pets.
