If we are to truly re-imagine economies for just, inclusive and sustainable futures, we need remember that those futures are made upon a shared planet – shared among humans, of course, but also shared between humans and animals. With this posthumanist perspective in mind, in this chapter I bring animal organisation studies into conversation with emerging thinking on the ‘foundational economy’ – the goods, services and infrastructures that support our everyday lives. A growing number of foundational economy thinkers are interested in how these everyday necessities can be provided equitably, produced sustainably and valued appropriately as the fundamentals for wellbeing. My contribution in this chapter is to apply these tenets to everydays that are shared with animals, and to foundational economic activities that incorporate animal lives, labour and products.
