Ask. Listen. Learn.

by B.J. Rogers If you’re like most animal welfare, human service, and social change folks I know, there’s a good chance that what draws you to the work you do is rooted in a genuine desire to help. To make a difference. To leave the world better than you found it. It’s why I’ve so […]

Does Organizational Culture Matter?

Accessible Care Do’s and Dont’s

Let’s Talk About Social Change, Baby

Don’t You (Forget About Me)

by Gretchen Nelson Are we managing with the same care with which we are hiring? We all know that hiring well can be hard work. In fact, we have developed a system at Emancipet that is almost bullet proof for hiring people that will be successful in our culture. No matter what system you are using, hiring […]

No One Leaves Naked

by Myles Chadwick At Emancipet we are always looking for innovative, cost effective ways to do this work better. Sometimes the ideas we hatch lead to big programs that take on lives of their own, but more often they lead to a series of little innovations that become woven into the fabric of what we […]

Who Are We to Judge?

by Myles Chadwick I was speaking to a group of animal welfare professionals recently about something that we at Emancipet believe passionately: People love their pets and given the opportunity will take care of them as best they can. This simple idea guides our outreach programs, our customer service policies, and even where we locate […]
