BOSTON, MASS., - September 26th, 2013 - The Paw Project and the Gifford Cat Shelter have partnered with Tugg, Inc to have THE PAW PROJECT documentary screened for one night only in Boston, MA on October 23, 2013 at the Landmark Kendall Square Cinema at 7:30pm.
Veterinarian turned filmmaker Dr. Jennifer Conrad will be present for Q&A following the screening. THE PAW PROJECT is an inspiring documentary that follows the David and Goliath story of a grassroots movement to protect felines, both large and small, from the cruelty of declawing and how the movement has prevailed despite the efforts of well funded professional veterinary associations.
The film takes us inside the issue of declawing cats and chronicles the happy and unexpected twist of fate that led to the protection of many animals through the grassroots advocacy efforts. "My ultimate goal with the film is to end declawing once and for all," states Dr. Conrad, who also established a non-profit organization under the same name. "I am hoping the film and our organization will help save these pets from further harm, so that they can lead better lives."
