The original web site and listserv were developed and maintained
by Dr. Robert J. Washabau (past CGS President) on the college of
veterinary medicine server at the University of Pennsylvania . Thereafter Dr. David Schneider took
kindly over and maintained the website and the listserv for several
years. Since 2008, Karin Allenspach has been maintaining and
updating the website.
All of them spent countless hours and put enormous effort into
creating the CGS web presence and therefore they deserve a big
THANK YOU (!).
