Getting to Zero (G2Z) aims to increase responsibility for companion animals so that every city and shire can achieve zero euthanasia of all healthy and treatable cats and dogs.
The G2Z model provides a framework for animal owners, breeders, pet shops, vets, dog trainers, governments, animal shelters, rescue groups, wildlife groups, teachers, students and community groups to work together on enabling access to, promoting and educating on desexing, microchipping, vaccinating, healing, socialising, fostering and adopting of surrendered/stray companion animals.
The G2Z website explains the Getting to Zero model, outlines the role of legislation, lists organisations committed to ‘getting to zero’ and explains how you can play a part in reducing euthanasia rates of companion animals to zero.
