The Center for Human-Animal Interactions Research and Education (CHAIRE) is committed to expanding our knowledge of the interrelationships between people, animals and the environment. CHAIRE is unique from other existing centers in that the animals and interactions examined expand beyond companion animals and equine to also include agricultural animals, wildlife and exotic animals. Another important distinction of CHAIRE is the purposeful effort to consider all human-animal interactions from not only the human perspective, but also the animal perspective.
