Welcome to the 224th episode of Our Hen House, featuring Leena Ledermann, Britta Chamberlain, Gieri Bolliger, Jonas Vollmer, Michael Moor, and Ruairi Donnelly [transcript of all interviews]. Today’s episode is Part II of a II Part Series exploring the conference, The Animal Turn and the Law, held in Basel, Switzerland earlier this month. (Don’t miss Part I — Episode 223 — which aired last week.)
We will also give you our take on German pretzels – the vegan varieties, of course.
FROM BRITTA CHAMBERLAIN: Donate food to “Hands for Paws” for the stray dogs in Romania. Britta says, “Here, food can be directly bought with a service we are working together with, which collects all the food donations ordered online and sends them to the logistics company directly. They donate free shipping via their in-house trucks each time enough food is collected to send 20 tons of food to ‘our’ shelter in Campulung, Romania.”
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
