Furry Survey


We are a team of researchers from the University of California, Davis, consisting of postdoctorate, graduate and undergraduate researchers. We are interested in learning about furries as individuals as well as furries as a community.

We have developed a survey that covers several aspects of the furry lifestyle, including relationships and personal experiences. Please note that all demographic information is used to prevent duplicate data and not for identification purposes. Also, all questions are optional and you can skip any questions you don't want to answer.

It is important to note that our study has been approved by IRB (The Institutional Review Board) and that every researcher is trained and certified in Human Research Protection. Only trained researchers will have access to the data and everything will be kept strictly confidential. No information will be traced back to participants, and participants will not be contacted unless they contact us first, directly through email.

Also, once all the responses have been gathered and analyzed, we will be posting a summary of the results. However, no personal or confidential information will be posted, that is, any free response questions will not be made public. All information will be summarized, pertaining to furries as a community, before being posted.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at:

If you are interested in participating in the survey and are 18 years or older, please click on the link below. Thank you.

Hi there. You have attempted to promote a study to wikifur. While I am in favour of surveys of the fandom, I would like to confirm your study's authenticity before allowing you to promote it in our group, given that significant personal details are being collected and attached to individuals.

Please provide the name and contact details (email preferred) of a supervising professor or other responsible party (an employee of the university involved in educational duties) who would have knowledge of your actions and whom I can independently contact with regards to this survey. If I am satisfied with the response, I will provide it to the group along with your original post.

We would like to provide you with the contact information of one of our head researchers of our study. Can you can provide us with an email address so that we can give you our contact details confidentially? Or you can email us at

Sure. You should already have an email from my hotmail address in your gmail account. :-)

We've tried sending a couple emails to you at and just wanted to verify that whether or not they got to you?

No, they will not get to me - that is a no-reply address used by LiveJournal for informing you of replies to your postings or comments. You can use greenreaper @ either hotmail or gmail to get to me.
I have contacted the people in control of this LiveJournal as well as the University of California Davis, and I am satisfied as to their credentials.
