The AWBI issued a notification to all municipalities, AWOs, etc. that
- CNVR procedures (Catch Neuter Vaccinate and Release) or Same Day Release, is not permitted for animal birth control of street dogs
- This procedure necessitates the use of optimal skill, and specialized equipment, and without the same, can result in the perpetration of great cruelty upon the animals subjected to the same
- Therefore, unless the Board approves and finalizes the Concept, and issues Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and unless the Board specifically permits CNVR these procedures are not allowed for animal birth control.
- AWOs found to be resorting to the use of the same, shall be de-recognized by the AWBI, and will not thereafter be able to participate in animal birth control
