Taco Dog Was Denailed/Declawed Probably Without Meds

The American Veterinary Medical Association started declawing in 1952 and this ‘mentality’ has spread to the public as a ‘good thing’ when in fact is it legal animal cruelty. This is NOT the first dog who has been declawed.

Taco, the 25lb lap dog, was dumped in a high kill shelter because he was having trouble walking. It appears that he was cruelly declawed, most likely without anesthesia, on his right front paw before somehow getting away. (Declawing is the amputation of an animal’s toe bones.) Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles pulled poor Taco and then realized the horror of what happened to him. They reached out to the Paw Project, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to ending the inhumane surgery known as declawing. The Paw Project jumped in and will be performing the same surgery they use on big cats like lions, cougars, tigers and most recently a leopard, to repair the damage done to declawed paws. Taco’s recovery will take about 3-4 weeks and then he will be ready to find his forever home.
The surgery and aftercare will cost approximately $4,000, anything above that will be used to repair the paws of other animals. Please donate to:
YouCaring.com/PotatoTaco or PayPal at PawProject.org with Memo = Taco
