Welcome to
Centre for Human-Animal Connection

We are dedicated to enhancing the mental well-being of individuals through therapy practices that incorporate animals.

About Us

Centre for Human-Animal Connection (CHAC) is a team dedicated to improving the well-being of humans, one human at a time.
Our goal is to foster overall mental well-being in all individuals with the assistance of animals.

"Animals are such agreeable friends. They ask no questions. They pass no criticisms." - George Elliot

With animals, we can be vulnerable, and slowly cultivate a deep sense of trust and companionship. By embracing this vulnerability, we open doors to personal growth and enhanced emotional well-being.

Join us on this journey of vulnerability, empathy, and the profound human-animal bond.

  • To enhance emotional well-being and foster personal growth through the human-animal bond.

  • Collaboration: We foster partnerships and collaboration with professionals from various disciplines to ensure a comprehensive and holistic approach to our sessions with animals.
  • Respect & Inclusivity: We hold deep respect for both humans and animals, recognizing their individuality, emotions, and unique contributions to the therapeutic process. We create a safe and inclusive environment where clients and animals are treated with dignity and kindness.

The session was fun and filled with laughter, the interactions with the Guinea Pig are a kickstart to get the seniors going. Looking forward to more sessions. It is really a heartwarming experience.

Ernst

Committee member & grassroots organisation

Engaging in CHAC's mindfulness activity with dogs was a transformative experience for our youth community.

Beyond the tranquil moments, participants discovered healthy love languages with their friends and family through unconditional canine companionship.

This innovative approach nurtured empathy, effective communication, and self-care amongst our youth. The program beautifully intertwined mindfulness with fostering positive relationships, leaving an enduring impression of emotional well-being and compassion.
