    "The Paw Project is an eye-opening film that will be of interest to millions of cat owners... "
    The Hollywood Reporter

    "Robustly persuasive, with Conrad compellingly framing her crusade as a battle between a right-thinking vet and a deep-pocketed industry group that purportedly represents her."
    The Los Angeles Times

    "Eye-opening...charming"
    The Village Voice

    "A heartfelt documentary....Certainly will make any cat owner, and perhaps some fellow veterinarians, think twice about declawing."
    The New York Times

    "The Paw Project proves that film has the power to effect social change-to right wrongs even when our elected representatives fail to do so."
    Scott Tallal, Executive Director, Malibu Film Society

    "This film is an inspiring emotional ride that should be seen by every animal lover and anyone who has ever been aware of a wrong and wanted to right it."
    Mark Thompson, Fox Television, Current TV, KFI Radio

    "Skillfully weaves arguments and images...gives the political drama a cinematic flow."
    LA Weekly

    "A love letter to cats"
    Cinema Beach

    "The Paw Project doesn't have gruesome, bloody imagery or try to horrify you or guilt trip you. It explains how declawing actually works, why many people are against it, and leaves you empowered knowing you can do something about it."
    Danica Davidson, MTV

    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 pre-release screening of the 1-hour documentary film, The Paw Project, followed by an informal reception for over 300 guests 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.

    More about feline declawing and humane alternatives to declaw surgery»

     

    THE PAW PROJECT's MISSION is to educate the public about the painful and crippling effects of cat declawing, to promote animal welfare through the abolition of the practice of declaw surgery, and to rehabilitate big cats that have been declawed. The short video below shows the dramatic contrast between Kona, a cougar who suffered painful and crippling health problems after declawing, and the natural, pain-free range of movement in a healthy undeclawed cougar.
