Our Priorities

ACC&D's priorities for non-surgical products for pet population control:

  • Approved by regulatory agencies as safe (for animals and for the humans 
    administering) and effective.
  • Permanent, though there may be some opportunity for long-term (3+ years) products.
  • Deliverable in a single injection or treatment.
  • Products available for effective use in both male and female, dogs and cats.
  • Documented effects on behavior and health.
  • Can be provided at affordable rates for use in indigent or low-income client populations.
