The ASPCA is partnering with Humane Alliance of Asheville, North Carolina to support their widely acclaimed National Spay/Neuter Response Team (NSNRT).
Under the guidance of Humane Alliance Director Quita Mazzina and Karla Brestle, DVM, NSNRT brings the proven Humane Alliance model for targeted high-volume, high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinics to communities across the country. Humane Alliance is considered by the industry to be one of the most successful approaches yet developed to reducing pet overpopulation.
Since taking their model to the national level two years ago, Humane Alliance has mentored thirty-one organizations which, combined, have altered more than 220,000 companion animals. Twenty-three additional applications are pending from groups eager to replicate the Humane Alliance success.
Humane Alliance receives funding from PetSmart Charities® and the ASPCA to continue their life saving work around the country.
According to Mazzina, a major goal of Humane Alliance and the partnership with the "A" is to develop training and professional guidance that will help smaller agencies improve their management skills and create sustainable programs. "We know that one of the many challenges in our business is the art of managing people so we look to the "A" to help us develop the kind of training that these organizations need to remain successful."
