On October 30, 2020, GoDaddy, City the Kitty nonprofit’s website hosting company, sent them a DMCA complaint alleging that copyright infringement is taking place on CitytheKitty.org.
The complaint was from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) who alleged that the use of their declawing information and logo was an infringement of AAHA’s rights.

How we tried to inspire the director/founder of the ANNA Shelter to stop providing declawing in her WELLNESS Centers.

We applaud all the tireless work that the director/founder, staff, and volunteers of The A.N.N.A Shelter do to help animals in Erie, PA.
Unfortunately The ANNA Shelter also performs declawing in their WELLNESS Centers.
As far as we know, there are only 2 animal shelters in America that perform and profit from declawing in their Wellness Centers/Clinics. The other one is the Houston Humane Society.
Declawing is inhumane, mutilating, and always harms the long term health and well-being of a cat.

Declawing Advice From An AAHA and AVMA Veterinarian

Interviewer; Our next question is from Larry, he writes, “My wife wants to get our cat declawed but I heard it’s inhumane”, is it safe to do this or should we leave it as it is?
Dr Nelson; Big discussion I’ll give you a kind of just a thumbprint of both sides some people consider it amputation & you’ll hear all kinds of extreme descriptions of it that are completely wrong & then there are other people that say ahh it’s just like trimming their nails, that’s wrong too.
Not every cat should be declawed but a lot of them have to be because they’re indoor cats & the older people don’t want to be scratched & the don’t want their house ruined & things like this. I’m Just gonna say discuss it with your veterinarian, he or she is the expert in it. There is some discomfort but it’s fairly brief, but not every cat, unless they’re having a problem should be declawed either.
Interviewer; Especially if your cat goes outside at all, it takes away some defenses.

Dr Nelson; Even declawed cats can climb trees & things like this but does take away on their defense, just don’t let them outside.

JAVMA Gives A Platform to AVMA Vet Who Claims Declaw Method is Painless and Uses No Pain Meds

“Because the method described by Dr. Yoon preserves the flexor process of the third phalanx and the attachment of the flexor tendons to this process, it may, theoretically, provide some benefits over procedures that involve removal of the third phalanx in its entirety. However, outcomes of this procedure, particularly long-term outcomes, still need to be studied. Comment by Kurt J. Matushek, DVM, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA)
