Research Opportunity – Department of Environmental Health and Engineering, JHSPH

Posted: January 6, 2017

Each year thousands of Baltimore communities’ pets end up at county/city open admission shelters. The vast majority of these pets are either abandoned or given up by low-income or middle-income families because they cannot afford to care for them or are losing their family home, apartment, or job and must move to a place that does not allow, or charges a security deposit for, having a pet. Many of the people giving up their pet(s), do not have knowledge of or know how to access resources to help them protect their assets and/or provide a “bridge” until they can get on “stable footing” again.

We propose a study that would examine whether it is possible to use this visit to the county/city shelter as an intervention point for people who are (1) close to losing their homes; or (2) having trouble with their landlords.  Such an intervention would allow us to identify families at risk and intervene BEFORE they were evicted, or before landlord/tenant problems became severe.  It would also reduce the number of animals “turned in” to the shelters.
