Children, adolescents & animals research
Children, adolescents and animals research (caar), is a group of researchers, graduates and doctoral students led by Professor Jo Williams and supported by Dr Janine Muldoon. We explore all aspects of relationships between children, adolescents and animals, and work closely with animal welfare organisations.

Our online survey 'Supporting People & Pets in Scotland' will be closing on the 22nd June, and we are looking for more participants. This study aims to identify the challenges that pet owners experience and the reasons why people feel they have to give up a pet. It will also identify where support is needed most. The findings will be used by our partners, the Scottish SPCA and Blue Cross, to identify priorities for practice and the types of support that need to be put in place.
