Farming and Animal Connections

Brigitte Jia and Katie Choo know first hand about animal shelters, wildlife rescue centers, medical labs, and veterinary clinics. Brigitte worked at animal shelters both in Berkeley,California and Nashville, Tennessee and is able to compare the differences in how animals are treated. She also works with mice in a hospital training laboratory where she has gained a deep respect for the value that lab animals provide for human health and medical breakthroughs. And she believes in the humane and kind treatment for all creatures. Katie is studying animal behavior, evolution, and science in Texas and is working in veterinary hospitals, a wildlife rescue center, as well as animal shelters. She explains the difference between the human interactions in each of the settings. In wildlife rehabilitation, for the protection and safe release of these creatures the #1 rules of engagement are: not let the animal imprint on you. 2. do not fall in love with the animal. 3. do not let the animal fall in love with you. In shelters and vet clinics, more bonds are created between people and their charges. Brigitte reads Cynthia Brian’s chapter, The Gift of Farming, from the book, Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World, providing more insight into the world of farming and caring for all creatures great and small.
