Bio:

Meghan has a Master’s degree from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Her specific areas of interest are veterinary shelter medicine and animal behavior. She also has a graduate certificate in non-profit leadership from the University of Florida.

Research Interests:

Meghan’s research explored the perils of breed assignment in animal shelter settings, as they relate to breed specific legislation and euthanasia of dangerous breeds. This project tested the accuracy of canine breed assignment using DNA samples from dogs whose specific breed and background were unknown. The DNA test results revealed if the breeds assigned to the dogs by shelter workers were correct, or if they were in fact different breeds all together.
