In August of 2004, a group of animal welfare industry leaders from across the nation convened at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California for the purpose of building bridges across varying philosophies, developing relationships and creating togetherness with all on the same footing. When we work together pooling our resources and working creating goals focused on reducing euthanasia of healthy treatable companion animals in United States. Through hard work, discussion and brainstorming a common vision was adopted. More information on Asilomar can be found at www.AsilomarAccords.org
What is our goal is to build a coalition by non-profit agencies that are teaming with municipal organizations to provide services. Without participation outside the government environment, we have little in saving all the lives of unwanted animals in our community. There must be pro-active programming in our community and working together with our coalition members and reporting our statistics in the Asilomar Accords definitions.
