Student searching for municipal shelter data


I am a graduate student at the University of Georgia and am looking for collaborators who have access to municipal shelter intake/disposition data with location and basic health information.

          Hi! I don’t know of a general applied animal welfare research and think its a great idea! I know several schools and labs have sites. I wonder if Maddie’s fund has a research site or group?
