All that wonderful rescue work, those long hours of rehab for the abused, the love and care your volunteers and staff work so hard to end the suffering of homeless animals, gone to hell in a hand basket with the decision to declaw cats. Declawing is an unnecessary amputation of the P3 bone for conveniece and vanity of self- centered, materialistic people. Declawing is currently illegal in 44 countries, some counties in California, with legislation to out law the mutilation in New Jersey. You are discriminating against cats, unless you also Declawing dogs. Please stop. Saying you are humane when you Declawing is false advertising. Watch #PawProject.

Or do you really want the notoriety of being the only humane organization in the country that declaws?

I started at HHS cleaning the cat adoption rooms, then moved to what ever needed to be done. I've always worked hard and loved every minute. All my dogs have been adopted from the organization. Recently I foster a set of 3 pups. I was both thrilled and a little sad to get them to forever homes. Don't kid yourself, that is a lot of work to do and keep your real 9-5 job. Not every boss understands you will be late if the potty pad supply is out.
