HABIT visits in action

HABIT is a community group of volunteers working together to explore the circumstances and consequences of the human-animal bond and to promote this valuable bond between people and animals. HABIT is comprised of representatives from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, volunteers from the community, and private veterinary practitioners.

Thank you for your financial support of HABIT.  

HABIT does not certify, register, train, or provide service dogs and cannot document the need for an emotional support animal. The Americans with Disabilities Act provides information regarding definitions and permissions for service animals and emotional support animals.​
