While she may have pursued a degree in Religious studies, Carolyn Mullin’s primary devotion is to animals. As the founder of the United States first Animal Museum, Carolyn works to educate the public with a living history of the animal protection movement, animal studies and humane education as a way of enriching the lives of both human and non-human animals.
In this episode of MHP this remarkable woman chats about her activist roots, working with local communities and local governments to improve the welfare of animals. She explains how a picture of Farm Sanctuary founder Gene Baur helped inspire her commitment to creating the museum, shares surprising facts about the history of Humane Education and explains just why she has a tattoo of a quote from Carol J. Adams.
