The Human-Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) gained Regency as an official supporter.

Regency works directly with pet owners and partners with veterinarians to provide nationally-recognized, individualized aftercare services to clients, recognizing the loss of a pet can be one of the most difficult experiences for families. The Regency Family adheres to a strict code of ethics and industry standards.

Scientific evidence increasingly shows that pets improve humans’ heart health, alleviate depression, increase well being, support child health and educational development, and contribute to healthy aging. The benefits of the human-animal bond impact more than just human health. Findings from a HABRI survey of 2,000 pet owners demonstrate that knowledge of the scientific research supporting the health benefits of the human-animal bond motivates pet owners to take better care of their pets. Knowledge of the health benefits of pets also helps encourage pet ownership, as 81 percent of pet owners surveyed stated that they are more like to get another pet in the future if the one they have passes away.

“When pet owners lose their beloved family members, their pets, Regency helps to make the process easier for all involved,” said Steven Feldman, executive director of HABRI. “Supporting pet owners and veterinarians at these difficult times is so important, which is why HABRI is proud to partner with Regency on research and education around this critical aspect of the human-animal bond.”
