Where It All Started
The Paw Project Movie Screening
is Big Success!
West Hollywood, CA
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the West Hollywood Anti-Declawing Ordinance and we are celebrating!
The City of West Hollywood and the Paw Project hosted a special free screening of the 1-hour documentary film, The Paw Project, followed by an informal reception at the Pacific Design Center. City Councilmembers from the cities of West Hollywood and Los Angeles and special guests, Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist and star of Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell" and YouTube sensation Randall were on hand to help us celebrate.
Declawing is a painful surgery fraught with the possibility of potentially life-long complications. It is done for the convenience of humans and does not benefit the animal. Yet, it is so common that one-quarter or more of all cats in the United States are declawed.
The one-hour documentary film The Paw Project is an uplifting David versus Goliath story that chronicles the 12-year battle of the tiny grassroots movement to rehabilitate felines that have been maimed by the mutilating amputation of their toes and its efforts to protect other animals from being subjected to this unnecessary, but lucrative procedure. Through the tireless efforts of animal welfare advocates and volunteers, millions of cats are now protected in the eight California cities that have adopted declaw bans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Berkeley, Culver City and Burbank.

FACTS ABOUT FELINE DECLAWING
Declawing is amputation; it is not merely the removal of the claws. To declaw a cat, the veterinarian cuts off the last knuckles of a cat's paw – cutting through bone, tendons, skin and nerves. In a person, it is equivalent to amputating each finger or toe at the last joint.
Declaw surgery can be an extremely painful procedure with associated health risks and complications such as infection.
Declaw surgery can produce permanent lameness, pain or arthritis.
Declawing is the same mutilating procedure for house cats or big cats.
