Accessible Care Do’s and Dont’s

Do you do any type of income qualifying? Are your clinics open on the weekends?

Let’s Talk About Social Change, Baby

by Marianne Lynch The concept of social change gets brought up in just about all of our seminars and presentations at Emancipet New School.

Rules for Better Meetings

by Myles Chadwick  I love a good meeting. I love listening to new ideas, sharing my own, and collaborating to create a plan of action. I walk into meetings with a “C’mon gang, lets save the world!” attitude, but this was definitely not always the case. There was a time when I would get a […]

Top 10 Interview Questions for Culture Fit

by Myles Chadwick and Marianne Lynch Most of us spend about 8-12 hours a day, 5 days a week with our co-workers. That’s 16,640-24,960 hours a year! And when you think about it that way, it only makes sense to us that when it is time to hire a new employee, you would hire for […]

Culture Hack Attack

by Amy Mills I’m a big believer in the power of healthy organizational culture. Culturally-fit organizations are consistently more successful in fulfilling their missions and achieving their goals because their employees are more adaptable and engaged in their work. But healthy culture doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of an intentional, inclusive process and consistent […]

Programming Rings for Low Cost and Free Services

by Myles Chadwick Knowing that you are serving the “right people” and that you are making a real impact on the number of homeless pets in your community can be a tough task to manage. For years, Emancipet offered low cost and free spay/neuter in low income neighborhoods and thought we were doing everything that […]
