An organization called the Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs (ACC&D) has funded a study for a promising non-surgical sterilant. Work on the product is still in the early phases, and this grant will make it possible to take the next step in determining the potential for its use in female dogs and cats. Read the press release
A non-surgical sterilant is the "Holy Grail" of the animal welfare/no-kill movement. If this is a topic that intersts you consider attending ACC&D's Third International Symposium in November to learn more about progress in the field and about how you can help reach our shared goals.
The greatest obstacle to the development of these tools over the past several decades has been a lack of focus and a lack of funding.
