Getting 2 Zero through Council NDN Cooperative Desexing Programs - Dr Joy Verrinder 

NDN developed the Cooperative Desexing Program to enable Councils to easily introduce desexing programs to prevent stray and abandoned cats and dogs.  It is currently offered in 17 cities and shires across Australia with many other Councils expressing interest in starting a program. Current Councils budget between $1000 and $40 000 to provide subsidies for residents in need.  NDN runs the program free of charge for Councils. This presentation will explain how the program works, and the benefits to Councils and the communities involved.
