Philosopher Fellow Volunteers for Animals
9th June 2015
Centre Fellow and Philosopher Dr Faith Bjalobok has been pioneering voluntary work for the care of companion and feral animals, including neutering, veterinary care and rehoming.
Dr Bjalobok is Adjunct Professor at the Department of Philosophy at Duquesne University and also Adjunct Professor at the Department of Philosophy at Chatham College, Pittsburgh. But she spends the bulk of her free time working practically to help neglected and suffering animals.
“This is animal ethics in action”, said Centre Director Professor Andrew Linzey. “The Centre is very proud of her pioneering work.”
A film of the latest project she is supporting can be seen on YouTube here.
Dr Bjalobok is also a contributor to the Global Guide to Animal Protection recently published by the University of Illinois Press. Her contributions include an article on Feral Cats. More details of the Global Guide are here.
