An odyssey with animals : a veterinarian's reflections on the animal rights & welfare debate / by Morrison, Adrian R.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Searching for the boundary between animals and humans -- Victims -- "Doing" science -- Biomedical research and its animals -- Fudging the data -- The history of modern animal-rights activism -- Exploring the nature of animals -- Justifying other uses of animals -- The philosophers.The relationship between animals and humans is more complex today than ever before. In addition to the animals that have served as household pets, and the farm animals that have provided labor and food, countless monkeys, rabbits, rats, and cats have enabled modern scientists to treat and cure humanity's most devastating illnesses. This aspect of animal-human interaction has engendered a bitter enmity between animal rights activists and the biomedical researchers whose work depends on the use (and oftentimes the killing) of laboratory animals. In this work, the author, a veterinarian and sleep researcher argues that humane animal use in biomedical research is an indispensable tool of medical science, and that efforts to halt such use constitute a grave threat to human health and wellbeing. The target of repeated acts of intimidation by anonymous animal rights activists because of his own research, he is himself an animal advocate, and this volume is the culmination of his years spent negotiating the treacherous divide between a legitimate concern for animals and the importance of biomedical research. Drawing on the disciplines of philosophy, history, biology, and animal behavior, he crafts a multi-faceted argument in favor of using animals humanely in research, the center of which is his staunch belief that human interests must be the primary concern of science and society. Along the way, he delves into other human uses of animals in domains such as agriculture, hunting, and education, examining each use along with its philosophical, moral, and ecological implications. The result is a discussion of a charged subject, of the past and present of animals' relationships with humans, and how and why we should be able to use them as we do.

My dog always eats first : homeless people and their animals / by Irvine, Leslie.;
Includes bibliographical references (p. 173-189) and index.A good life for a dog? -- Accessing homeless pet owners -- Confrontations and donations -- Friend and family -- The pack of two -- Protectors -- Lifechangers and lifesavers -- Implications for research and policy."A weary-looking man stands at an intersection, backpack at his feet. Curled up nearby is a mixed-breed dog, unfazed by the passing traffic. The man holds a sign that reads, "Two old dogs need help. God bless." What's happening here? Leslie Irvine breaks new ground in the study of homelessness by investigating the frequently noticed, yet underexplored, role that animals play in the lives of homeless people. Irvine conducted interviews on street corners, in shelters, even at highway underpasses, to provide insights into the benefits and liabilities that animals have for the homeless. She also weighs the perspectives of social service workers, veterinarians, and local communities. Her work provides a new way of looking at both the meaning of animal companionship and the concept of home itself."--Publisher's website.
