Action Alert

California: Help Ban Cat Declawing Statewide!

This action is for California residents only.

California could become the next state to ban cat declawing, a permanent surgical procedure in which all or part of the last bone in a cat’s toes is amputated. This major operation can cause post-surgical pain and lifelong medical implications, and prevents a cat from performing natural behaviors.

New York and Maryland already have statewide cat declawing bans, and many major cities — including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Madison, Austin, Denver, and Berkeley — have similar ordinances.

Help protect cats by urging your state senator to support California’s cat declawing ban, AB 2606!
