The Pet Positive Movement is a positive proactive revolution to save America's pets' tails, toes, ears, and more from non-therapeutic invasive procedures.
Too often, tail docking, declawing, ear cropping, and more go unnoticed. They are simply part of "what is". NPAWS and, hopefully, you will end that. The first phase of the movement involves recognizing, applauding, and certifying America's veterinarians who do not perform non-therapeutic invasive pet procedures. We will share their choice with the public on our website and in other ways to enable like-minded clients to easily find them.
Volunteers like you will help NPAWS to end normalized pet cruelty by saving tails, ears, claws, and more from non-therapeutic invasive procedures. At the same time, it will help you gain valuable skills in a vital role plus you can earn volunteer experience you can put towards a future career or education. It's a win-win for you and NPAWS.
