COVID-19: Suspending Spay/Neuter Surgeries TEMPORARILY

For years all of us in the Animal Welfare field have fought to gain traction and support for spay/neuter services in its varying iterations, most especially pre-adoption sterilization performed by our agencies or community partners to assist in the reduction of pet overpopulation and unintended breeding.  Now amidst the rest of the chaos that has come from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are being asked and asking our agencies and partners to stop this essential service in an effort to conserve medical supplies.

Dear NACA Members and Stakeholders,

It is with great regret and disappointment that today we are announcing the difficult decision to cancel the NACA 2021 Annual Conference in Reno, Nevada, next year.

As you know, 2020 marked the first time in 40 years that NACA did not hold an Annual Conference. We recognize the magnitude of this decision for our association and our membership. Unfortunately, due to the uncontrollable situation we have experienced from the COVID-19 pandemic, we had no other choice.

Our annual conference brings together hundreds of passionate animal care & control professionals and exhibitors. We come to learn, to celebrate the work of our membership, and to provide opportunities for our profession to explore and connect with others. While this is a setback for us, the NACA Board of Directors will be exploring ways to continue bringing these valuable resources to you.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation will cause and look forward to actively working with you to support and improve the animal care & control profession.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at admin@nacanet.org
