My Dog is My Home: The Experience of Human-Animal Homelessness
National Museum of Animals & Society
My Dog is My Home: The Experience of Human-Animal Homelessness is an interactive physical and online exhibition that draws upon the personal stories of homeless human-animal families and the providers who assist them with accessing services. The exhibit aims to illuminate the importance of keeping the human-animal bond intact in such desperate circumstances and to establish the idea that the areas of human homelessness and animal homelessness are not mutually exclusive phenomenon. Homelessness is a shared experience across species which needs to be accounted for in our attitudes, knowledge, and services.
