I just got this announcement from our friends at Legacy Canine in Sequim (owned by the internationally famous dog trainer, Terry Ryan, on the penninsula) and wanted to pass it on to you. It’s a free event and it looks fascinating! Here’s what they wrote:
Jennifer Brown of Phuket, Thailand, on Soi Dogs will be speaking on Wednesday Nov 9 from 7-8 PM.
This talk should be of key interest to those who travel and spend their tourist dollars in Thailand and surrounding areas, as well as everyone interested in improving animal welfare globally.
If you have been considering becoming more involved with such issues as stopping the dog meat trade and other forms of cruelty, increasing awareness and support for spay and neuter programs, and advocating for rabies vaccination instead of mass culling by poison bait this is your chance to come and hear first-hand what it’s like in these area’s of the world and learn how you can be part of the solution.
We will have videos and photos (from both Thailand and Bali) during the talk. Also, shirts and other Soi Dog goodies available for a modest donation.
Jennifer has a BSc with Honors in Veterinary and Animal Science with a concentration in molecular biology. Her current research interests focus on bioethics and ethology. She is finishing her Masters in Bioethics at Monash University in Melbourne, AU as well as taking cognitive science/psychology coursework at Harvard University. She currently resides in Phuket, Thailand. While in Thailand she conducts research and volunteers at the not-for-profit Soi Dog Foundation.Â For more information on her, please visit http://www.soidog.org/.
