Pet challenges research: summary of key findings
Following on from our 2021-22 project funded by the Scottish SPCA and Blue Cross, we have been working with Blue Cross during 2023. Our project aims to understand the challenges being experienced by pet owners in the current financial crisis. A summary of findings from our qualitative research and 2022 survey are available to download from our webpage below. During the summer we also relaunched our survey with the intention of comparing the situation for pet owners with the data from last year. A report will be available later in the year, and we are working on several journal articles. Watch this space!
