A proposed rule before the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners would have banned nonprofit groups from owning and operating spay/neuter clinics or veterinary equipment, and also would have prevented veterinarians from working with such groups.

We responded with a proactive campaign that involved organizing thousands of phone calls to veterinarians around the state asking where they stood on the new rules, putting their answers online, and mobilizing Alabamans to take action.

After hearing overwhelming support for the clinics and opposition to the rule from these advocates, the board unanimously voted down the proposal.
