Worst Pedicure

Is Santa Barbara interested in promoting animal welfare? Currently, Santa Barbara allows the inhumane declawing of cats. Declawing cats is not a “nail trim.”

Declawing is a surgical procedure in which the animal’s toes are amputated at the last joint. Cities in California which have passed legislation abolishing declawing are: Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Francisco, Culver City, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Burbank and Berkeley.

Doesn’t Santa Barbara need to pass a resolution against this practice? If this is an issue that concerns you, contact members of the City Council to end these inhumane amputations.
