The Paw Project
THE PAW PROJECT is an inspiring documentary written, directed and produced by veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Conrad. The film chronicles her journey from her work as an exotic animal veterinarian in Hollywood to legislative hearings, where she urges elected officials to ban the dangerous and harmful practice of the declawing of cats. The film takes us inside the issue. Sharing testimony from industry professionals and pet-owners alike, THE PAW PROJECT examines the emotional and physical cost that a cat pays when declawed, and reveals the profit that the procedure generates for veterinary doctors across the nation.

The innocuous title may create the impression that “The Paw Project” is a cutesy compilation of YouTube cat videos, but it’s actually a heartfelt documentary about a subject that inflames cat lovers everywhere: declawing.
