Dear Colleagues,

I have launched a new column on Substack to replace articles on this blog and (eventually) Facebook posts.

My first column is an analysis of a new study in the Journal of Work, Employment and Society which looked at how staff members of traditional animal shelters navigate the “tensions” of working at a place that is supposed to “care” for animals but instead kills them. This contradiction is what the authors call “care-based animal dirty work” or “the caring-killing paradox.”

If you would like to read it, it is here.

While there, sign up to receive an email when a new column is published.

Thank you, as always, for your support. Together, not only will we save lives; we will create a future where every animal will be respected and cherished, and where every individual life will be protected and revered.

Nathan
