Immediate Housing Needs

•  Animals whose housing circumstances are about to become critical

Special Needs

•  Animals whose physical, health concerns, and/or behavioral needs may limit the variety of homes available to them

Felines

•  Kittens—up to six months of age (None available right now)

•  Males

•  Females

•  Declawed or those with Tenotomies.

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.

 

Declawing (amazingly enough) is still considered to be “controversial” in the USA. Some veterinarians just won’t do it. Others think laser surgery makes the recovery less painful. Still others think a tenotomy is the way to go. The UK considers declawing inhumane...it’s illegal there.

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

Grafix: Don't declaw, it's mutilation

•  Males (None available right now)
