Both the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, and the Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary, are quite clear at time of adoption that an adopted kitten or cat must not be declawed, and the adopter has agreed to that condition of adoption.  Scratching is a natural cat behavior, and cats can be ‘taught’ to scratch where appropriate – cardboard scratchers, sisal scratchers, cat trees.  The adopter always has the option of returning the kitten or cat to the respective organization.  There is no way to determine how many of these declawed kittens and cats are relegated to the outdoors, but their odds of survival would be very slim.

 It is our hope that one day, very soon, the American Veterinary Medical Association will join forward-thinking, progressive organizations, countries, states and cities, in making the practice of elective and non-therapeutic declawing ethically unacceptable.

Until then, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary request that our position that no kitten or cat adopted from either organization be declawed, be respected and honored.

Good for Southern AZ.  Hopefully Humane Societies, in other areas of Arizona, will share the same view soon!
