Temple Grandin: Guest Speaker
by Mary Watterson, Fort Collins Dog Walker & Pet Sitter
This year's "Whiskers 'n Wags Jubilee," Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic's largest annual fundraising event, will feature CSU's very own Temple Grandin.
Grandin became widely known and loved after the critically acclaimed biographical film "Temple Grandin," winner of seven Emmy awards and a Golden Globe, was released in 2010. The film featured Claie Danes who portrayed Grandin, a woman with autism who completely revolutionized practices for the humane handling of livestock. Grandin's work also earned her a place in Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World."
Grandin will discuss her recent book "Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals." Animals Make Us Human is the culmination of almost thirty years of research, experimentation, and is being heralded as essential reading for anyone who's ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.
