Dear Houston Humane Society,
We, the undersigned, ask you, Houston Humane Society, to protect all animals and speak out against declawing, educate the public about the humane alternatives, and not perform low cost declaws at your clinic.
You say this on your website in the spay/neuter price list section, "The HHS offers limited surgical declawing by licensed veterinarians in an effort to help cats remain in their homes" and say that the declaw must be performed at time of spay/neuter surgery. HOW IS THAT A LAST RESORT?
There are many declawed kitties in Houston who were thrown away because of behavioral issues they developed from their toe amputations.
There are no studies or proof that declawing helps keep a cat in a home, in fact the opposite has been proven.
Please protect the health and well-being of cats and stop performing this inhumane, mutilating, and very unnecessary procedure.
These are some of the things you say in your About Us section on your website, "The Houston Humane Society is dedicated to, and working towards, ending cruelty, abuse and the overpopulation of animals while providing the highest quality of life to those in our care. With your help we can reduce animal suffering throughout the Houston area."
Declawing is the amputation of a cat's last toe bone and claw. Declawing is performed at the Houston Humane Society clinic despite it having absolutely no benefit to the cat and despite it being bad for the welfare of ALL cats.
Cats deserve better.
Please provide brochures and information about the humane alternatives like nail trims, sturdy scratchers, and Soft Paws. Please educate cat owners in Texas about the awful truth about declawing so they stop asking for this barbaric and harmful procedure for their beloved cats.
It's time for you to be strong and be a true HUMANE leader in animal welfare and protection. We will celebrate your bravery in leading the way to a better world for cats.
