Here’s what people had to say about ACC&Ds last Symposium:

I was incredibly impressed by the openness of debate, the quality of speakers and the range of issues addressed. ACC&D should be commended for the many aspects of work it is doing to promote the best application and coming together of ideas for nonsurgical sterilants and, ultimately, better animal welfare.

-Kate Atema, Director, Companion Animals Program, International Fund for Animal Welfare

Inspirational. I met people from all over the world with a common goal; everyone was on the same page. Everyone was willing to share information and experiences, great combination of science with real life practical lessons.

-Dr. Sheilah Robertson, Assistant Director, Animal Welfare Division, AVMA
