Romanian Street Dog International Adoption (Dog care professionals)
Background to the survey
Have you encountered former Romanian street dogs in a professional capacity? If so, we would be extremely grateful if you could spend a few minutes completing our online questionnaire. We are a research group from the University of Exeter, UK, and we have been conducting research on the management of street dogs in Romania. As international adoption is a common outcome for former street dogs, we are interested in finding out more about this process. We would like to know about the contexts in which you have encountered former Romanian street dogs, and the outcomes of those encounters. We are hoping to collect as many stories and diverse experiences as possible. We would like to hear about health and behavioural issues, relinquishment and rehoming. The questions are open-ended to enable you to share your stories in as much detail as possible. The information you provide will be treated in confidence and at no point will you be identified or your data shared with other parties. We will use the information you share with us to improve knowledge and understanding of any specific issues which might arise in relation to the international adoption of former street dogs, to improve the welfare of the dogs and to assist those involved in caring for former street dogs from initial rescue and then throughout their lives. Please feel free to share the link for this questionnaire to others you know who have encountered former Romanian street dogs in a professional capacity. We have a separate survey for adopters which can be accessed on the project website (details provided at the end of the survey).
