Make a donation that will help alleviate
the suffering of declawed cats
and end the cruel, unnecessary practice
of declaw surgery
The Paw Project’s mission is to educate the public about the painful and crippling effects of feline declawing, to promote animal welfare through the abolition of the practice of declaw surgery, and to rehabilitate cats that have been declawed.
The suffering of big cats that have been maimed or crippled by declawing often can be alleviated through paw repair surgery. The procedure requires up to two separate operations, each lasting 5-6 hours and costing up to $3,500 USD. Reparative surgery can offer big cats immense relief after years of pain, as in the case of Naala, an African lioness.
Your contribution can make a huge difference in helping The Paw Project educate the public about the painful practice of declawing and in improving the quality of life for a magestic animal like Naala.
Big Cats have benefited from paw repair surgery performed by veterinarians working with The Paw Project. (See a list») The results have been dramatic. Enjoying relief for the first time after years of suffering, cats that could hobble only a few agonizing steps before surgery, now are able to leap, run and play much more as Nature intended. Over 70 captive wild and exotic cats in southern California animal compounds have been treated, ranging from a 550-pound tiger to a 21-pound bobcat.
The Paw Project actively advocates campaigns to legally ban declawing at the community and state level. See legislative milestones »
