We are anonymously surveying WSU students aged 18 or older to learn more about the characteristics and behaviors students look for when interacting with animals. This online survey will take between 20-25 minutes and can be done remotely on your personal computer or mobile device.

You will be asked to view various images of cats and dogs and answer questions about the extent to which you are interested in interacting with them. We are interested in recruiting students from all types of animal backgrounds including, but not limited to, current companion animal owners, previous companion animal owners, those who may live with but do not own a companion animal, students who have never owned an animal, etc.

Your feedback will help us understand the characteristics and behaviors students look for when interacting with animals. This information can be used to further understand animal-assisted interventions on college campuses. This online survey is anonymous, and responses will not be linked to any identifying information.
