Dear shelter and rescue organization professionals,
My name is Carol Tinga and I am a PhD candidate at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. My research focuses on understanding social and environmental factors related to the pet rabbit owning experience and pet rabbit welfare.
I am contacting you to ask that you consider completing an anonymous, online research survey that has been created as part of my PhD research under the guidance of Dr. Lee Niel, Associate Professor, OVC. This project has been reviewed by the University of Guelph's Research Ethics Board for compliance with federal guidelines for research involving human participants (REB #22-05-013).
We are recruiting representatives of animal care organizations (e.g., animal shelter, animal rescue, humane society, rabbit rescue, rabbit society, rabbit charity) that take in stray, abandoned, and/or owner-surrendered domestic rabbits to complete a short survey.
We would be happy to answer any questions or concerns about this study and can be contacted at email@example.com (Carol Tinga) or firstname.lastname@example.org (Lee Niel). Also, please feel free to share our survey with your relevant contacts. Our recruitment advertisement is inserted below and attached for your consideration and use. The ad can also be accessed and shared via our lab's Facebook page, OVC Companion Animal Behaviour and Welfare Lab, where it is pinned to the top.
