Pets and Poverty Study

Do you have pets (or have had pets) and experience poverty or a precarious situation, and also live in Ontario Canada? I invite you to fill out this research survey! It will take about 15-20 minutes of your time and you’ll be helping to inform current and future community service programs for pets and their guardians! I hope you’ll decide to participate. More information can be found by following the link to the consent page.

I am currently doing my MA, and for my thesis I am doing an introductory study looking into how pets effect the everyday lives of people experiencing poverty and/or precarity. As the director of a nonprofit that works with pets and their guardians, I have had so many emails from people wanting assistance for their pets. This study aims to fill in the gaps in current scientific research and help us create targeted programs with the ultimate goal of keeping people and pets together.
