Reportedly, GOLDMARK Property
Management, Inc., and Sand Companies, Inc.—property management groups that own
multiple apartment complexes in Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa, and
Nebraska—require tenants to declaw their cats. PETA
has reached out to both companies several times, but to no avail. We
need your help!
in 22 countries, declawing is a cruel and permanently crippling surgery involving the amputation
of the last joint of every toe, including bones and cartilage! Persistent pain,
loss of balance, nerve damage, bone chips requiring additional
surgery, gangrene, and skin disorders are associated physical complications;
and nails can later grow back painfully and
unseen, within the paw! Declawed cats often
become reclusive, depressed, and insecure and begin eliminating outside the
litterbox. Psychologically changed, these animals are then bounced around from
home to home or wind up at animal shelters.
Please politely urge GOLDMARK
Property Management and Sand Companies to join the numerous property management groups that do not require declawing.
And please, forward this alert widely!
