5th Annual Symposium on Non Surgical Contraceptive Methods of Pet Population Control
June 20-22, 2013
Hilton Portland and Executive Tower

Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs
The 5th International Symposium offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to stakeholders interested in the development and use of non-surgical methods of controlling cat and dog populations worldwide.
The Symposium will feature more than 50 speakers and convene scientists, veterinarians, animal welfare professionals, public health advocates, pharmaceutical industry representatives, and funders from the U.S. and abroad. The Symposium takes place at a critical juncture in development and use of permanent, non-surgical options for canines and felines. Zeuterin
™, the first FDA-approved non-surgical sterilant for male dogs, is scheduled to be launched commercially in the U.S. in mid-2013. It has been five years since Found Animals and the Michelson Grants in Reproductive Biology committed up to $75 million in research support and award money to develop a non-surgical sterilant that is safe, effective, and practical for use in male and female cats and dogs. ACC&D just released a 154-page e-book on fertility control in dogs and cats--the definitive reference guide to this growing field.
