About us

The Adrienne & Pierre Sommer Foundation is France’s only private, independent, not-for-profit organization devoted to human-animal interaction (HAI). The Foundation supports the development of HAI practices that contribute to the well-being and integration of the most fragile members of society: ill or disabled children and adults, homeless youth, ex-prisoners, and dependant older adults. To this end, the Foundation provides financial support for academic and laboratory research on HAI-related issues. In addition, the Foundation creates and diffuses materials for HAI learning and education programs.
