This is the place to lobby for animals, speak out against cruelty and discuss the latest news and petitions. With enough support we can educate others and give a voice to animals who can't speak for themselves.
My name is Ash Brumett and I am a clinical psychology doctoral student at Palo Alto University in Palo Alto, CA working under Wendy Packman, Ph.D., JD. I would like to invite you to participate in my dissertation research study on missing pets. There is no compensation for your participation, but this study will help researchers and therapists better understand what it is like, as a pet owner, to have a pet go missing and the complexity of this kind of loss.
To date, very little is known about the emotional toll of a pet’s disappearance. Your experience matters.
To be eligible, you:
• must have had a pet go missing (at any point in your lifetime) and the pet has never been found
• are 18 years of age or older
• currently live in the United States
• are fluent in English
• have access to a stable internet connection
• are willing to allow 45-60 minutes for completion of survey
You may access the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/38LTHV5
If you have any friends or family with missing pets who might be interested in participating, please let them know about this research project.
If you have any questions at any time about this research, please contact me at [email protected]
My best to you,
Ash Brumett, M.S.
