Declawed & Tenotomized* Cats

Please go to and study this link BEFORE you make an appointment to have a cat declawed.





*A tenotomy is a surgical procedure where the tendon that allows each claw to engage/disengage is severed. It’s much less invasive than either the “surgical-dissection method” (more preferred) or the “guillotine method” (least preferred) of removing claws.

**These animals are listed as a Owner/Rescuer Re-home Service. They are not being fostered by JCHS. To meet them contact us by e-mail.
