Momentum builds after 4th International Symposium on Pet Contraception
Date:6/8/2010

Portland, Oregon, June 8, 2010 From April 8 to 10, 2010, 185 attendees from 25 countries convened in Dallas, Texas, to focus on advancing new tools to humanely and effectively manage populations of pet and un-owned cats and dogs. Experts in reproductive biology and other related scientific disciplines presented the newest research and discussed perspectives with industry experts in animal health drug development. Veterinary leaders joined with animal welfare and advocacy groups, foundation representatives, public health officials and others to assess the tools currently available for use. Together, these stakeholders looked at where we are, what is possible, and what is needed to advance non-surgical methods for controlling cat and dog reproduction around the world.

A post-meeting survey generated high praise for the symposium; many felt inspired by the international involvement and excited about real progress using current approaches, and fresh science with real promise to deliver new technologies in the future.

Resources to advance new science, and a new tool available now

After the symposium, a survey of the attendees indicated that 88% felt more hopeful that we will see progress in this area and 81% said they are now more interested in being involved in this effort. Contributing to high levels of enthusiasm were two key developments in the last two years.

The Michelson Prize & Grants in Reproductive Biology, launched in October 2008 by Found Animals Foundation, is inspiring researchers worldwide to focus on the goal of finding new non-surgical approaches to
