Kudos to Assemblywoman Rosenthal and Senator Griffo.

May 1, 2018 – New York state Assemblywoman Linda B. Rosenthal has introduced a bill, A.595 (formerly A.1297), that would make New York the first state in the nation to ban cat declawing. Soon afterwards, New York state Senator Joseph A. Griffo (R-Oneida County) introduced the companion bill (S.3376) in the Senate, giving it a majority-party sponsor in the GOP-controlled NY state Senate. The declawing bill would ban the amputation procedure unless it is done to treat a medical condition affecting the cat. The Paw Project is grateful to Assemblywoman Rosenthal and Senator Griffo. We are proud to have introduced the declaw issue to Assemblywoman Rosenthal and to have helped in organizing support for the bill. We are fortunate to have the help and support of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA), and Ethical Veterinary to pass the bill. We will update this page when the bill is introduced in the coming legislative session.

Please read the NY No-Declaw Bill Fact Sheet and the NY No-Declaw Myth vs. Fact Sheet, which have been presented to the NY state legislators.
