The truth. It’s time for a change. A few years ago I took up this important cause to help end declawing because I knew that so many of my fellow cats were being harmed and suffering. I asked my mom for her assistance. She had many creative endeavors going on, and she was quite busy with her photography career, but …
Rhoda A Hogan wanted 1/8 th of her estate to be a bequest of $125,000 for, “An organization to be used to publicize and educate the public about the cruel effect of de-clawing cats and to support legislation forbidding it.”
She wanted declawing to be banned in America and wanted her money to be used specifically for this purpose.
New Yorkers, today is the last day for you to RSVP to this important event that will help protect animals from harm and cruelty. But where is the support for our NY bill from ASPCA and a vow to help end declawing?????
Can you PLEASE respectfully, nicely, and kindly ask them why they won’t be supporting the bill to ban declawing at this event? Grassroots@aspca.org
Any veterinarian who does this (declawing) should be stripped of their doctorate, their practices should be shut down, massive fines need to be applied. Named and shamed, the owners especially, should be fined as well massive amounts of money and banned from ever owning another animal as long as they live .
They are disgraceful and pathetic and should be disgusted in themselves, the price these poor cats pay for the aesthetic pleasure that these owners apparently get is beyond unbalanced and completely unnecessary.
There’s a bill in NY to ban declawing that will be back on the table next month. We need all the support we can get to convince the legislators how important this bill is for the welfare of cats!
There is a deeply troubling emerging picture of inappropriate standard of care and substandard practice of veterinary medicine with regards to declawing in America. Declawing cats with no pain meds.
Here are facts from top officials and veterinarians at the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, New York State Humane Association, The Paw Project, and Ethical Veterinary, that you can use when people try to justify doing this mutilating procedure.
I have a serious and urgent subject to address and have put on my Feline Bureau of Investigation hat to get to the bottom of this alleged crime.
“I’m so against declawing that I’ve lost all desire to work in vet medicine.
I worked at ….. Animal Hospital for about a year and half. After the Paw Project came out, Dr ….. and I were thrilled to finally have a tool to help curb the desire to declaw. It worked great! We nearly stopped all declaws.
We must keep educating cat owners about the FACTS about declawing. Throughout the last couple years of taking on this important cause to end declawing I’ve learned this dirty little secret about declawing in the veterinary profession.
