Mission Statement

To expedite the successful introduction of methods to non-surgically sterilize dogs and cats and to support the distribution and promotion of these products to humanely control cat and dog populations worldwide.

Description

ACC&D is an animal welfare organization and catalyst for collaboration to advance non-surgical contraceptive options for cats and dogs. While we steadfastly support traditional spaying and neutering for reproductive control and certain health and behavioral factors, we also recognize that traditional surgery does not have the capacity to reach all animals. Expanding options for fertility control will have a significant impact on reducing the millions of homeless cats and dogs destroyed in shelters each year; humanely controlling populations of feral cat and dog populations living without human care; and reaching pet dogs and cats who, for various reasons, are not candidates for surgical sterilization. In addition, it will provide options to pet owners to make the right choice for their pet. We work to expedite the successful introduction of methods to non-surgically sterilize dogs and cats through facilitating research; providing scientifically sound and animal welfare-oriented resources to stakeholders in animal welfare, animal health, and public health; and supporting the appropriate distribution and promotion of products suitable for the humane control of cat and dog populations.
