After declawing poor Chico on all four paws his owners decided they had "no time" for him and turned him into a kill shelter. Chico lost his claws, his home and nearly lost his life until a collaborative effort from The Paw Project, The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and the Patricia H. Ladew Foundation, Inc. stepped in to save his life. But we can't give him what he really wants -- a forever home. Only you can.
