Why would anyone mutilate a creature in this heinous way?
Why would anyone declaw a cat, something equal heinous?

We've been unsuccessful in New York ( so far) in having this very inhumane and cruel procedure banned; but we will keep trying. I would urge all to call your representatives and express your digust at the continued mutilation of our animals-via breeders, unethical vets, owners and politicans who don't give a rat's ass about animal welfare or how they choke on their own vomit and food after this surgery is perfromed. Animals need their voice to communicate, so the psychological ramifications loom large. There are many sites which explain all about this procedure-give a look if you can-it's very informative and eye opening. Done

Noted and signed in hopes it will help this abusive devocalization of dogs. I am sure everyone knows that dogs will bark, if they are barking incessantly it usually means that something is bothering it, or the animal is left outside a whole day, which is so cruel. Dogs can be trained to not bark very much.
Thank You Cher.

Signed and noted, thanks Cher for posting.

Its unbelievable how some owners seem to take the easy way out at the expense of their animals.
Both dogs and cats usually bark/meow for a reason, e.g. hunger, boredom, irritation, threats from other animals or humans, and many other valid reasons. Attend to those reasons and the barking/meowing will usually stop. As some others have written, dogs can be trained not to bark. It just takes a little effort and training for both human and animal and the goal can be achieved.

If an owner can't be bothered doing that, they probably shouldn't have the animal in their lives.
If someone wants a dog that doesn't bark, they should buy a breed that doesn't bark, e.g. the Pharaoh hound.

Signed! Prevent stupidity of so many people from interfering into the life path and freedom and birth rights of ALL BEINGS on EARTH now! Follow the path we have been emphatically instructed to follow by all spiritual adepts through the ages: the NO HARM, VEGAN, ORGANIC DIET with Inner Third Eye Mystical Meditation! SPIRIT IS ALL WE ARE. We can not do harm while in the material body! This is our chance to accelerate the spiritual journey, which is impossible to accomplish if we kill, remove the rights of any life form, poison, participate in destruction.
