Join Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, and Patrick McDonnell, author of the MUTTS comic strip, in conversation about Mr. Pacelle’s new book “The Humane Economy.”
During his 17 years with the Humane Society, Pacelle has transformed the organization from what was once regarded as simply a protector of dogs and cats into a dynamic public force and voice for all animals. He is amplifying that voice through the publication of “The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals.” In the book he describes a revolution in American business and public policy that is changing forever how we treat animals and conduct commerce.
This informal conversation led by McDonnell, an avid animal lover and board member of the Humane Society, will explore how companies as varied as Walmart and Chipolte as well as government entities like the National Institutes of Health are transforming the way they see and use animals.
Copies of the book can be pre-ordered from jaZams (ph. 609.924.8697) and will available at the event. Mr. Pacelle will be available to sign books and answer questions both before and after the conversation.
