About the Organization

NPAWS(r) is on a mission to cultivate a Pet PositiveTM culture across America, advocating against the normalized cruelty of needless invasive procedures like declawing, tail docking, and ear cropping. These medically unnecessary procedures are considered "normal," yet do nothing to benefit the animal. They only cause pain and suffering.

Each year, over one million American pets are subjected to unnecessary debilitating traditions, such as tail docking, ear cropping, declawing, and more. These procedures are considered illegal mutilation in Europe. NPAWS is carrying this compassion forward by spreading awareness across America to enhance our humane treatment of the furry ones that 95% of us call family.

NPAWS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation based in Austin, Texas. (For more information, visit npaws.org.)
