Thrive Pet Healthcare Allows Declawing In Their Stand Alone Clinics. Thrive Petco Clinics Do Not Perform Declawing.

Thrive Pet Healthcare allows declawing in their stand alone clinics. Thrive Petco clnics do not perform declawing. Petco told us in 2018, “Please know that Petco and the Petco Foundation do not support the practice of declawing unless it is a medical necessity (for the cat).” Some of the Thrive Pet Healthcare practices don’t perform declawing and they say their doctors don’t think declaws are ethical or humane. Many other Thrive Pet Healthcare vet clinics routinely perform declawing and their employees say it is ok for a cat and some even ask if you want two or four paws declawed.

The ASPCA Doesn’t Want Declawing Banned & Their Position Statement is Being Used to Stop Anti-declawing bills.

City the Kitty is calling on animal lovers across the world to investigate the ASPCA on why they do not want declawing banned and why they have a declawing position statement that is on the side of declawing veterinarians and not cats.
If the ASPCA has a declawing position statement that completely condemns this animal cruelty (declawing) and helps pass laws to ban it, then more cats would be protected from this inhumane, cruel, and very harmful amputation procedure.

Why is Kelley’s Heart to Heart Adoption Center in MI Declawing Most of Their Rescued Cats Before They Put them Up For Adoption?

Dr James Kelley, the owner and declawing vet from Kelley’s Animal Clinic in Walker, MI sent a note to all the shelter directors in Michigan in Feb. 2020 about how he opposed the anti-declawing bill. Some of the things he said in the note were, “Declawing your cat is not a cruel choice, there are no ill side effects, and the cats are not aware of the fact that they have been declawed.”

Dr James Kelley also runs a cat adoption organization called Kelley’s Heart to Heart Adoption Center in Walker, MI and most of their rescued kittens are declawed before they put them up for adoption.

Note To #NOMV Supporters Who Are Attacking, Harassing, and Bullying City the Kitty

NOMV supporters are trying to destroy our important mission to protect innocent cats from this cruel, inhumane, and barbaric amputation procedure by harassing us and bullying us and by accusing us of being a bully.
We are all about educating and shining light on the injustice of declawing. That’s it. We always take the high road and ask our supporters to do the same.
So the facts are that NOMV supporters who are attacking us are the cyber bullies, not us.
