Humanitarian Offers $75 Million for Single Dose Sterilization of Cats and Dogs
Date:10/20/2008

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Humanitarian, Dr. Gary Michelson is "making an unprecedented investment on behalf of companion animals," says Aimee Gilbreath, Executive Director of Found Animals Foundation (Found Animals) http://www.foundanimals.org, Michelson's privately funded 501(c)3.

Found Animals and its strategic partner the Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs (ACC&D) announced the launch of The Michelson Prize in Reproductive Biology at the SPAY/USA Conference in Chicago on Thursday, October 16th, 2008 at 7pm.

The Michelson Prize in Reproductive Biology is an international competition which represents a unique experiment in innovation aimed at solving the problem of pet overpopulation.

The goal of the Michelson Prize in Reproductive Biology is to encourage researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields to take on the challenge of non-surgical pet sterilization. Found Animals is hopeful that this large monetary incentive will motivate scientists, including those who may never have been aware of the issues of pet overpopulation, to bring cutting edge scientific approaches to bear in this historically underserved area.

Found Animals recognizes that the research required to develop and test novel approaches to pet sterilization will take time and money and that many interested parties may not have access to the resources required to initiate and maintain research in pursuit of the Prize. For that reason, Found Animals is also offering the companion Michelson Grants in Reproductive Biology which will provide funding for promising research in pursuit of non-surgical sterilization technology.

"We're killing millions of pets annually in the U.S. for the simple lack of a home and sterilization programs are the only viable solution," said Dr. Michelson. "Animal welfare experts have long recognized sterilization as the most important component in the figh
