The Paw Project

The Paw Project, an intense and inspiring documentary will open this Friday, September 27 in New York at IFC Cente
The Paw Project is the inspiring film that follows the David and Goliath story of a grassroots movement led by one woman to change laws and protect our pet cats from declawing. The movement continues to grow everyday; and it is led by the film’s writer and director Dr. Jennifer Conrad. 
The Paw Project shows how the movement began, how it continues to prevail despite the efforts of well-funded professional veterinary associations. “When people watch this film, I want them to walk out of that theater feeling inspired that they can help end this horrible practice. I want them to feel motivated and capable.” says Conrad.
The Paw Project takes us inside the issue of declawing. Sharing testimony from industry professionals and pet-owners alike, it 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. “I had to reach wider audiences, with this new tool that uncovered truths about declawing. That’s when I decided to make the film.” says Conrad.
The film follows Conrad as she refutes representatives from the American Veterinary Association (AVMA), and from pet examinations to legislative hearings, where she urges elected officials to ban declawing in their cities.  
The Paw Project will have additional afternoon screenings at Laemmle Santa Monica, CA on October 18 and 19. Dr. Jennifer Conrad will attend to participate in Q & A for select screenings. For more information please visit:
