Review for Alliance For Contraception In Cats And Dogs, Portland, OR, USA
This highly effective and efficient group was formed as an alliance between three groups that previously had not communicated, yet all had similar goals - to reduce pet overpopulation by contracepting or sterilizing dogs and cats. The groups are academic researchers, pharmaceutical companies and the animal welfare groups. ACC&D has been a source of credible and reliable information that helps all three groups move this goal forward. They have held multiple international symposium that increases communication and knowledge on the subject worldwide, supporting work in computer modeling of population dynamics, helped welfare groups evaluate new technologies, and generally filled an important place in the animal welfare ecosystem. They run on a very lean budget, with a small staff of about 2-3 people, and a dedicated volunteer Board of directors, scientific advisors, and international experts. No other organization does what they do. I have been honored to be a part of this great organization for over 15 years, and seen how impactful their work is.
