INTRODUCTION

Statement of Purpose

This study is designed to assess the level of satisfaction among individuals that have adopted pets from Arlington Animal Services. The study includes a survey to the population of adoptive owners via telephone interviews. The survey consist both qualitative and quantitative questions. The primary objective of the survey is to identify specific areas where Arlington Animal Services was lacking in customer service. The statistical analysis of the data will find recurring problems.

Significance of the Study

Arlington Animal Services is a non-profit organization in Arlington, TX, whose goal is to encourage responsible pet ownership by offering licensing programs, field enforcements services, and educational programs for Arlington citizens. They provide services to the citizens of Arlington for the following:

• Stray animals

• Animal bites

• Wildlife/exotics

• Nuisances

• Loose livestock

• Animal cruelty

• Public education programs

• Injured animals

• Deceased animal pickup

According to Arlington Animal Services, they are among the leading adoption centers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In order to maintain this position they must continue to improve their adoption services. A key element of this task is to keep a high level of customer satisfaction. The satisfaction survey designed for Arlington Animal Services would help identify key areas of concern. In addition, Arlington Animal Services is planning on opening a new facility in January 2007. Management believes this is a good opportunity to get feedback from customers about the adoption services with the aim of incorporating some of the lessons learned in to the design and operations of the new facility.

Operational Definitions

Stray Animal: whose owner is unknown.

Nuisances: means an animal is destructive or menacing. The animal may be damaging property such as buildings, crops, pets, livestock, gardens, or public parks. May threaten human health or safety by spreading diseases; through direct attacks; or accidentally, because of collisions with cars, airplanes, or trains.

Animal Cruelty: Cruelty to animals refers to treatment which causes unacceptable suffering or harm to animals. The definition of "unacceptable suffering" varies from person to person; some consider only suffering inflicted for sadistic reasons to be cruelty to animals, whereas others extend the definition to include the suffering inflicted on animals for other reasons (such as producing fur or meat).
