This tool is an Excel template, created by AMRRIC, for people wishing to undertake a companion animal census in their community.  For digital use, data validation is set up to allow users to quickly select companion animal population indicator options, for fields such as species, gender, reproductive status and age etc. The excel can also be printed if paper-based census data capture is preferred.  Capturing companion animal census data is critical for monitoring and evaluating animal health and management programs.
