Applications open for pets in housing research funding scheme
Applications for the research grants close on 30 April 2021.

Eight grants available for projects exploring human-animal bond.

The Society for Companion Animal Studies (SCAS) has announced that applications are now open for the second round of its three-year funding scheme to support research into the human-animal bond.

This year SCAS is looking for research that focuses on the issues surrounding pets in housing, particularly projects looking at:

  • the impact of current, or historic, pet related housing legislation
  • an assessment of incident, type and cost of damage caused by pets in housing
  • the views of landlords, care institution or housing association staff, in relation to pets and housing
  • stakeholder perceptions of pets and housing insurance schemes.

There are eight funding grants available, awarding between £1,500 and £10,000. Applications close on 30 April 2021.

More information can be found on the SCAS website.
