Save Their Paws: End Declawing
Declawing is the common term used to describe the amputation of the last bone in every toe in order to remove the claws. Since a cat's claw grows from the inner portion of the bone, the bone must be removed to eliminate the claw. No matter whether a scalpel, or a laser, or guillotine clippers are used, declawing is still amputation.

I don't understand how this ISN'T animal abuse. It is not a medically needed surgery so how are they legally allowed to chop off bones and joints for profit?
It is time for the Paw Project and/or other anti-declaw groups to take a legal stance on the issue, especially when the veterinary associations (such as the AVMA) give no indication that this legalized form of animal cruelty will ever be banned in North America; in that regard I suggest that the ALDF become involved and a request made for a legal assessment , including the potential need for class action lawsuits.
