Research

Animal and habitat protection is complicated and expensive.  In an effort to better understand the needs of animals and people in the communities we serve we collect data during program delivery.  The information gathered from quantitative and qualitative surveys provides us insight into the issues that affect the welfare of domestic animals and wildlife. The data we collect can play a valuable role into developing solutions to these often complex problems. We share data openly with other organizations, municipalities and researchers in an effort to foster cooperation in identifying and addressing animal welfare challenges.

We currently collect data on individuals accessing Mojave Pet Food Bank, as well as on the density and distribution of plastics in the Mojave ecosystem.
