Pets, people and urban places


How can pet owners live peacefully with others – and their pets? What policies and bylaws should cities adopt to ensure animal welfare and public safety?

Melanie Rock’s research draws on the One Health concept, which recognizes intricate connections between the health of humans, animals and ecosystems. Applications of One Health range from infectious disease control to dog-walking for physical activity and social engagement, to the social justice implications of cultural ideas about human-animal relationships.

Join this webinar to learn more about Melanie’s research and how it can inform policies that could lead to better lives for people, pets and wildlife in cities.
