Fighting Like Cats and Dogs- Conflict in the Animal Welfare Field
The intent of this research project was to advance understanding of conflict in the U.S.
animal welfare movement. A survey of 227 employees and volunteers of U.S. animal welfare
organizations was conducted to answer key questions about conflict in this field: What types of
conflict are these organizations experiencing? What is the impact of conflict on these
organizations and on the people working for them? What resources are these organizations and
individuals using to facilitate effective conflict resolution? Where do we go from here? #peoplemanagement
