“HABRI is inspired by the dedication of individuals and organizations honoring the human-animal bond,” said Steven Feldman, president of HABRI. “While there are remarkable pet care innovations showcased at Global Pet Expo, we seek nominations from diverse sectors. Innovations connecting pets and people can arise from any corner of society.”

“PetSmart Charities is proud to sponsor the Human Animal Bond Innovation Awards,” said Aimee Gilbreath, president of PetSmart Charities. “These awards highlight and share innovations benefiting people and pets worldwide, and we're eager to celebrate those advancing the human-animal bond.”
