Place for Cats rescues as many cats and kittens from the New York Animal Control Centre (NYC ACC) nightly death lists as it can.
Currently we have a number of lovely cats and kittens ready for adoption.
Place for Cats is dreaming big!
We plan to obtain a new shelter space next year. We can’t say ore at the moment but ‘watch this space’ as we have dreams!

Declawing is Wrong SAYS PLACE FOR CATS
We plan to produce an anti-declawing VIDEO, for which we have the screenplay and veterinarians lined up to speak out against the paw tip mutilation.
Meanwhile if you are interested in reading an article against the practice that was written by our director, Mia Lancaster, and published in Place For Cats’ printed newsletter MEOW BEAT, download the Pdf here. There is also a lot of up-to-date information on declawing from The Paw Project, and City the Kitty.
Why Declawing is Wrong
- Declawing is amputation; it is not merely the removal of the claws.
- To declaw a cat, the veterinarian cuts off the last knuckles of a cat’s paw – cutting through bone, tendons, skin and nerves. In a person, it is equivalent to amputating each finger or toe at the last joint.
- This surgery can be a very painful procedure with associated health risks and complications such as infection. The mental effects on the can can be imagined. Permanent lameness, pain or arthritis can result.
