*Pet Sitter Needed*


 My veterinarian suggested that I email just in case someone was available.

 I am looking for pet sitter for a 12-year old miniature poodle and a 13
year old cat. The poodle is a ‘rescue’ from a Humane Society over 5 years
ago and still has separation anxiety. He hyperventilates if put in a cage
or crate so I cannot put him in a kennel.

 My normal house sitter is not available for 2 months so I am looking for
someone who might be available more often.

 My 13 month granddaughter has leukaemia (infant All) and has been in the
IWK Children’s Hospital for 5 months and will be for a good number of
months longer (hopefully, if the chemo continues).

 I hope to go over Halifax at the following times to relieve my daughter:

March 31st to April 3rd

April 16th to the 23rd.

  There will be dates beyond that time, but I can only project in the near

 I can only pay *$20 a night* as I am trying to help with their expenses.

 Address: A Home at 151 Cathy Drive, off York Point Road in North River

Telephone: 902-892-2538 <(902)%20892-2538>.    You can text 902-218-0707
<(902)%20218-0707>. Email: gallantcampbell at gmail.com.

I am a sessional at UPEI in the School of Business.

Thank you very much

*Student Parenting Survey*

Dear Veterinary Student,

Our research team at The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts
University is conducting a survey to quantify the number of veterinary
students and house-officers at accredited veterinary campuses who are also
parenting and/or family planning, or have altered family planning in order
to complete their veterinary training. *We invite you to consider
responding to our survey, even if you are not a parent or have no plans to
start a family! The survey will take no more 10-15 minutes of your time*.
Responses to the survey will be kept confidential and will not be linked to
your name.

Please use the following link to access the survey:


We would like to thank you for your participation. *Upon completion of the
survey you will be eligible for a drawing to win one of five Amazon gift
card for $100.00 each*. In addition, names of participants from the three
veterinary institutions with the highest response rate among students and
house-officers will be entered in the drawing twice, so please encourage
your peers to participate!

We aim to determine the extent to which veterinary colleges provide support
services and create learning and working environments that are supportive
of parenting and family planning. As the veterinary profession continues to
evolve, such data will better inform veterinary institutions about how to
develop best practices and improve quality of life for this demographic.
Your responses are of great value to our team as there exists no
demographic data on the number of veterinary students or house-officers who
experience pregnancy, are parents, become parents during their veterinary
training or alter family planning due to their training.

Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have
regarding this survey at (Marieke.Rosenbaum at tufts.edu).

Thank you,

Brianna Molter, V18
