Declawing is an unnecessary and expensive surgery that fewer vets are willing to perform and some states have banned. It is the amputation of the last bone of each toe and severing of tendons. Declawing alters the way a cat walks, their balance, and their ability to jump. For comparison, it would be like cutting our finger off at the first knuckle.
Spaying and neutering your pets is the best way to curb the pet overpopulation problem and prevent homeless animals from entering the shelter system. The Humane Society of Utah opened its nonprofit spay/neuter clinic in 1962, and since that time, we’ve performed hundreds of thousands of sterilization surgeries. We currently average over 10,000 dog and cat spay and neuter operations each year. There is a critical demand for help in the Washington County, Utah area.
