We are veterinary students at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, conducting research on the impact of COVID-19 on animal shelter operations in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic United States.
Please consider filling out this brief (~20-30 min) survey if you are the Executive Director, CEO, Medical Director, or Shelter Manager of a shelter with a brick-and-mortar location and an adoption program, operating in one of the following northeast or mid-Atlantic states: PA, NJ, NY, DE, MA, CT, RI, NH, VT, ME and MD. Your participation in this research may help us learn about disaster response in animal shelters and shelter protocols and policies more generally. This survey is voluntary, and your answers will be anonymous.
If you know a shelter that qualifies to participate, we would appreciate it if you would please forward the survey link to them.
Thank you for your consideration,
Ilana Gitlin, Caitlin Houlihan, Xuke Ji, and Martha Stone
