Engaging stakeholders in the planning and implementation of strategies to humanely manage their community&rsquo;s dog or cat population requires a commitment. Establishing relationships and developing an honest and safe environment for discussions takes skill, time and a willingness to see things from other people&rsquo;s perspectives.
