Dr. Erica Feuerbacher, assistant professor of anthrozoology, received a $20,000 grant to conduct a one-year research project to determine the stress level of temporary fostering on dogs from animal shelters, and to determine if any future adoptive home behaviors can be predicted from the experience.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the anthrozoology department to partner with Best Friends Animal Society and Arizona State University and engage our students in research that focuses on animal welfare.

Center, there is less parking available. All other campus lots are open for Commencement parking. We encourage graduates and guests to carpool and plan accordingly for the extra time needed to secure parking. Please consult the Carroll campus map for parking lot locations.
