Veterinarians in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are getting some much-needed help from a new nonprofit, the Animal Care & Control (ACCC) Network.
The nonprofit, which launched in September 2016, aims to bring a little more awareness to veterinary referral centers around the country.
ACCC’s mission is to make the care of pets, especially those who are in need, as easy as possible.
In a way, ACCC is the Animal Shelter of the Future.
ACSCON is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, meaning it is not required to disclose its donors.
The network has been able to raise money for its mission by partnering with other nonprofits, including the Texas SPCA and the American Humane Association.
The goal of the ACCC Network is to increase the awareness of veterinary referrals by educating people about their responsibilities as veterinarians.
ACNCON was formed in October 2016 and is headquartered in Dallas.
The organization has partnered with a number of organizations to help connect people with local veterinary clinics.
Among them are the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TxVMA), the Texas Animal Hospital Association (TAHKA), the American Veterinary Medical Society (AVMS), the Society for Veterinary Medicine (SVMM), the South Texas Veterinary Association (STVA), and the Animal Health Care Group (AHCG).
ACNCon has raised over $1.2 million for veterinary medical research through the AVMS, SVMM, and AHCG.
