Getting 2 Zero requires all stakeholders to be proactive. Proactive means “positive”, “practical”, “hands-on” and “optimistic”. This section will provide information on ways that community members can contribute to Getting to Zero. See drop down menu on right hand side for how your stakeholder group can contribute to Getting to Zero.
From time to time, specific actions for stakeholders will also be highlighted in this section.

Dr Anne Fawcett
Anne Fawcett is a companion animal veterinarian who also teaches veterinary ethics and professional practice and blogs at www.smallanimaltalk.com. Anne has worked in animal shelters and private practice and continues to maintain links with numerous animal welfare organisations. She has a strong interest in the human-animal bond but believes humans can do more to keep their end of the bargain: as famous ethicist Arthur Webster said, ““What matters to animals is not what we think and feel but what we do.” Translating our positive sentiments about animals to action requires awareness, motivation and belief that we can make a difference. The G2Z model has proven that we can virtually eliminate the number of “unwanted” animals admitted to shelters.
In addition to her veterinary pursuits, Anne writes for numerous publications such as The Veterinarian Magazine. She is passionate about all aspects of companion animal practice including medicine and surgery, and is undertaking further study in veterinary oncology in 2014. She lives with several rescue pets including a dog, two cats and two guinea pigs. You can contact her via firstname.lastname@example.org
