Bio:

Meghan is a graduate student in the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine. Her specific area of interest is veterinary shelter medicine. She also has a graduate certificate in non-profit leadership from the University of Florida.

Research Interests:

Meghan's current research project explores the perils of breed assignment in animal shelter settings, as they relate to breed specific legislation and euthanasia of dangerous breeds. This project is testing the accuracy of canine breed assignment using DNA samples from dogs whose specific breed and background are unknown. The DNA test results reveal if the breed assigned to the dogs by the shelter workers are correct, or if they are in fact other breeds all together.
