Presented with: The Washington Humane Society
Venue: Atlas Performing Arts Center

THE PAW PROJECT (USA, 2013, 58 min.)

An inspiring against-all-odds story of a grassroots movement to protect felines, both large and small, from the cruelty of declawing and of how the movement has prevailed, despite the efforts of well-funded professional veterinary associations. In the United States today, approximately 25 percent of domesticated cats are declawed. Declawing is the amputation of the last bone in a cat's toes. Despite the physical and behavioral harm inflicted on cats that are declawed, many veterinarians continue to recommend the procedure. An eye-opening yet charming documentary, The Paw Project chronicles the happy and unexpected twist of fate that has led to the protection of many cats. Directed and produced by Dr. Jennifer Conrad.

Discussion with Dr. Megan McAndrew, DVM, Medical Director, Washington Humane Society, follows screening. A cat adoption event will take place in the Center's lobby before and after the screening.
