To enhance their welfare, humans feed them fish which are dead, but are disease-free, protect them from predators and injury, monitor their health, and provide activities for behavioral enrichment Some are kept in lagoons with natural soil and vegetated sides. 28 Most are in concrete tanks which are easy to clean, but echo their natural sounds back to them. 29 30 They cannot develop their own social groups, and related cetaceans are typically separated for display and breeding. Military dolphins used in naval operations swim free during operations and training, and return to pens otherwise. 31 Captive cetaceans are trained to present themselves for blood samples, health exams and noninvasive breath samples above their blow holes. 32 Staff can monitor the captives afterwards for signs of infection from the procedure.

Given our large sample size, the effect size of these differences must be considered in addition to the significance level.

For example, White respondents were 3.14 times more likely to own a dog, a fairly large difference, while married people are 34% more likely to own a dog, a comparatively smaller difference.

If a pet owner ships a pet to the U.S. as cargo using a pet shipper, and the pet owner plans on having the pet collected by a professional shipper, the pet owner should download CBP Form 7501 After completing the appropriate sections of this form, the owner should fax or scan this information along with a copy of the airway bill, the health certificate papers and a copy of the owners driver’s license or passport to the pet shipper. The shipper can deliver this form and accompanying papers to the Custom’s office at the airport prior to the pet’s arrival. In essence, this will mean that the owner is authorizing clearance—not the shipper. This avoids the need to hire a customs broker. A friend or family member may collect and clear the pet without this form because they are not being paid for this service.
