Through my video ethnography project I aimed to uncover the correlation between animal and human abuse. When animals in the home are abused or neglected, others in the home may be treated similarly. My means of learning about the relationships that people who work with animals have with animals comes primarily from sociology, and particularly from the work of sociologists who use the ethnographic approach, working in this setting in which humans and animals intersect. My study will also seek to understand the culture-sharing group of people working within the shelter area of T&D Cat’s animal shelter and how and why T&D Cat’s culture relates to animals and can act as a window into an aspect of this distinct culture.
