Animal Studies Book Excerpt:

Prefaced with a brief introduction to the field of animal studies, the text explores the key influential terms, topics and debates which have had a major impact on the field, and that students are most likely to encounter in their animal studies classes. Animal Studies provides a guide to key concepts in the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of animal studies, laid out in A-Z format. While Human–Animal Studies and Critical Animal Studies are the main frameworks that inform the bulk of the writings in animal studies and the key concepts discussed in the volume, other approaches such as anthrozoology and cognitive ethology are also explored. The entries in the volume attend to the differences in ongoing debates among scholars and activists, showing that what is commonly called “animal studies” is far from a unified body of work. A full bibliography of sources is included at the end of the book, along with an extensive index. The book will be a valuable guide to undergraduate and postgraduate students in geography, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, women’s studies, and other related disciplines. Seasoned researchers will find the book helpful, when researching topics outside of their specialization. Outside of academia, it will be of interest to activists, as well as professional organizations.

The Impact of Breed Identification Potential Adopter Perceptions and Demographics and Dog Behavior on Shelter Dog Adoptability Book Excerpt:

Annually, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide—3.3 million are dogs. Upon intake, shelter personnel evaluate each dog to gain information regarding behavioral and health history. Previous owner's records or shelter personnel's visual perception of the dog generates a “breed label.” However, the U.S. shelter canine population predominately consists of dogs with an unknown history and breed heritage; thus, the created “breed label” is a subjective assessment of breed type. Several studies illustrate that majority of shelter dogs are composed of more than one breed and are mislabeled compared to identified breeds from their genetic analysis. Additionally, breed labels have negatively impacted adopters' decisions due to certain breeds' stereotypes and legislation. Breed labeling is a tool animal shelters can utilize to implement specific care strategies and tailored adoption matches for the dogs in their care. However, canines are multidimensional individuals whose behavior and appearance are influenced by numerous factors; therefore, whether a breed label accurately reflects a dog's genetic makeup may not be efficient for successfully matching potential adopters with a companion. By steadily increasing the number of successful adoptions out of the shelter, fewer animals may require euthanasia. The overarching objective of this research was to assess the impact of removing dog breed labels in a local animal shelter on overall dog adoption rate and length of availability (LOA) for adoption, in addition to dog breeds commonly restricted by breed legislation or currently under county restrictions in the state of Ohio. The second objective examined the impact of visitors' demographics, perceptions, and importance of potential companion's features on adoption decisions, contingent on breed label presence or absence. A third objective utilized dog behavioral observations during a visitor interaction to identify out-of-kennel shelter dog behaviors that may influence adoption outcome. Through the utilization of experimental and observational methodologies, a two-phase survey instrument was distributed (N = 217) at a municipal animal shelter in Columbus, Ohio over three 4-week periods (P1= control—breed labels on, P2 = treatment—breed labels removed, P3 = return-to-control—breed labels reimplemented). Dog breed labels were assigned through visual inspection by shelter personnel. They were visible to the public except for the treatment period's duration, where they remained undisclosed in the shelter system software. Furthermore, a random subpopulation of participants consented to the dog's behavioral observation (n = 38) during their interaction. A comprehensive out-of-kennel shelter dog ethogram was developed and employed to record and code dogs' behavior. Results concluded that breed label removal did not increase the overall dog adoption rate; however, after breed label reimplementation, there was a 7.9% decrease in adoption rate compared to the initial control period. Within each period, the "non-bully breed" group maintained a higher proportion of adoptions than the "bully breed" group. After breed-label reimplementation, dogs in the "bully breed" group remained available for adoption approximately two days longer than "bully breed" dogs in the previous study periods. Dogs in the "bully breed" group were available for adoption twice as long as dogs in the "non-bully breed" group in each study period. While subjective breed labels were removed, fewer visitors viewed dog breed as a determining factor for adoption. Shelter visitors often did not agree with breed assignments by shelter personnel, irrespective of breed label presence. Perceived and observed dog behaviors influenced adoption likelihood. While previous research has focused on factors that influence shelter dog adoption in part, the present study has offered a unique framework for exploring a more holistic approach to the multifaceted adoption process. The examination of factors that influence adopters' decisions before and after a shelter dog interaction by assessing adopters and nonadopters utilizing experimental and observational methodologies provides new insights into animal shelter research. Furthermore, it enhances our understanding of the shelter animal adoption process by identifying management recommendations that shelters could implement to increase shelter dog adoption success. These findings also have the potential to transcend beyond animal shelters and adopters, extending to property managers, policymakers, and the community at large.

The Lobbying Strategy Handbook Book Excerpt:

"The Lobbying Strategy Handbook gives students who are passionate about social change the tools they need to successfully influence law-making at the state and local level. The heart of this book is a 10-step strategic model that walks the reader through the essential elements of conducting a lobbying campaign from start to finish. The lobbying campaign model is clearly explained and illustrated by four case studies - and accompanying artifacts - that show how groups of students successfully used it to pass significant laws. The book unfolds with historical examples of pathbreaking social change legislation led by citizens and nonprofits, explains the motivations and impediments to lobbying, moves to a clear-cut explanation of the legal lobbying rules for nonprofit organizations, describes how federal state and local governments secure and spend money (and the political arguments affecting those decisions), and provides an illustrated guide to the legislative process. The 10-step model is bracketed by an explanation of how to effectively use technology in lobbying campaigns, and guidance about what to do once a bill has passed. Undergraduate, graduate students, and anyone interested in making a difference, can use the book to guide them in creating and conducting a grassroots campaign from start to finish"--

Animal Control Management Book Excerpt:

This book is the first of its kind to discuss in detail the actual management of local animal control programs as opposed to the care of the animals. The book covers those financial, personnel, legal and health and safety issues that animal control directors and management staff need to know in providing direction and oversight of animal control programs. Chapters examine selected topics in which the author assesses the strengths and weaknesses, offers new insights and strategies for managing more effectively. For example, the two chapters on contracting, discuss the steps in the process, strategies, and suggested provisions in the written agreement to make the program more effective. The animal law chapters explain the basis for the laws, but also highlight those provisions that if enacted into law, can strengthen enforcement options. The chapter on budget and revenues explains funding variations among programs and how local officials have been creative in financing these programs. Subjects addressed in this book include many recently recognized as vital to the management of animal control programs. They include: need for websites, use of program evaluations, and the value of forms, records and reports. In addition, the author discusses and assesses from a new perspective: interacting with the public and the media, liability issues, wildlife problems, and the politics of animal control.
