The MuckRock/Boston Globe Dog Census

MuckRock and the Boston Globe are looking for your help.

We are seeking people interested in helping suggest public records requests with their local municipality in order to get basic information about the dogs in their towns: Names, breeds, in some cases ages and location. And we want to make it really, really easy for you to help find out more about your city while sharing the knowledge with others.

1) Input your town manager's information and the other optional fields in the form below.

2) Hit submit.

If you give us your email address, we'll keep you updated on what we find, or you can check back here or on the Boston Globe's project page, where they'll be providing analysis and visualizations of the data.

MuckRock will handle all the actual filing, digitization, and follow up.

The information has already been obtained for these communities: Andover, Brockton, Concord, Dover, Framingham, Gloucester, Mansfield, Newton, Plymouth, Quincy, Revere, Wilmington, and Woburn.
