THE PAW PROJECT is the inspiring documentary that follows the David and Goliath story of a grassroots movement to protect felines, both large and small, from the cruelty of declawing and how the movement has prevailed, despite the efforts of well-funded professional veterinary associations.
In the United States today, approximately 25% of domesticated cats are declawed. Declawing is the amputation of the last bone in a cat's toes. Despite the physical and behavioral harm inflicted on cats who are declawed, many veterinarians continue to recommend the procedure, which costs upwards of $1,200 per hour even for very young kittens.
These are animals we love, and with whom we share our homes. Why aren't we being told the truth about what the declawing procedure involves? What goes on when the vet takes our beloved companions to the back of the veterinary clinic? THE PAW PROJECT chronicles the happy and unexpected twist of fate that led to the protection of many animals through the grassroots advocacy efforts led by Dr. Conrad.
THE PAW PROJECT was written & directed by Dr. Conrad in an effort to educate more and more folks about declawing and to ban the procedure across the nation
