Review for Alliance For Contraception In Cats And Dogs, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs is an outstanding non-profit doing the important work no other non-profit has had the expertise to tackle: Non-surgical contraception for cats and dogs. They are affiliated with veterinarians and scientists from around the world and every year improvements in the procedure are being made. We all know the objections veterinarians give who are asked to spay or neuter animals pro bono. . . surgery is too time-consuming, recovery time is too time-consuming and they cannot give away that much time and skill. That is why this non-profit is so important. . . . a simple injection with the recovery time of about 30 minutes and the pet population can be controlled around the world. The overpopulation of dogs and cats have plagued cities, towns, villages and pet lovers forever. Now we have THE SOLUTION! That is why this non-profit deserves recognition and the funding to educate veterinarians and the general public world-wide.

Review for Alliance For Contraception In Cats And Dogs, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was privileged to volunteer for ACC&D's 2013 International Symposium on Non-Surgical Contraceptive Methods of Pet Population Control for Dogs and Cats. It was enlightening listening to veterinarian research scientists from all over the world giving their presentations and how the drug Zeuterin had been researched and tested. At that time it was proven successful to be used as a canine neutering drug. Additionally, other scientists reported on their progress in researching the use of it for spaying dogs and neutering and spaying cats.

After the 3-day symposium, I also volunteered at the clinic where many international veterinarians administered Zeuterin to over 20 male dogs. The process was extremely fast and humane. The dogs came into the process area, had the procedure done and went home under their own power within the hour; no surgery, pain or lengthy recovery.

Many organizations are cooperating to reduce the pet population and that is wonderful. However, because of ACC&D's innovation and resolve, this non-surgical way of reducing the pet population is easier, more humane and less costly. ACC&D not only contributes to the reduction, they are the leader in the field and continue to promote scientific research to make certain that surgery, for this purpose, will become a thing of the past. President Joyce Briggs and her Board of Directors have made a once-upon-a-time dream become reality.
