The Animals Among Us: How Pets Make Us Human

by John Bradshaw Author

In The Animals Among Us, anthrozoologist and author John Bradshaw explores the appeal of pets and their connection with animals. Pets began serving crucial roles for humans such as herding livestock, guarding homes, and controlling vermin. However, while our reliance on animals for these purposes waned, our love and attention for them has, if anything, only grown. Bradshaw contends that pet ownership is deeply ingrained in our evolution, unravelling the roots of the enduring bond between humans and their animal companions.
