I met with another fellow foster colleague, and learned about her foster fail pets and current foster pet.
Yesterday I drove 2.5 hours to the MGHS shelter.
Firstly, it sucks to have a happy adoption, and then it not work out in the end. Nemo and Dory were returned yesterday due to unknown severe allergies in the house. This might’ve been particularly embarrassing too, if it’d been announced as a “Happy Tail” adoption online.
Anyway, my next stop for ethnography was the home of a colleague.
My first stop (my home didn’t really count) for smartphone ethnography was an adoption event at PetSmart.
I’m doing a smartphone ethnography for one of the assignments in the class. What that basically means is taking photos with my phone while being “in the field.” My being in the field will include talking with fosters, going to shelters, and attending events.
I decided that I might as well start somewhere easy: my own home.
For a class on digital research methods, I decided to focus on how Animal Rescues can use social media to benefit their efforts. More specifically, I wanted to focus on photo posts on Facebook.
