The Quran strongly enjoins Muslims to treat animals with compassion and not to abuse them. The Qur'an states that all creation praises Allah, even if this praise is not expressed in human language.
Cats have a special place in Islamic culture. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is said to have loved his cat Muezza so much that "he would do without his cloak rather than disturb him while sleeping on it."[21
Adopt Me Canada is a non profit home based cat rescue in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. A large number of the supporters for our cause are from within the GTA Islamic Communities.
Adopt Me Canada is a non kill and cage free. We adopt our cats/kittens strictly out of homes not pet stores.
We have taken a break from rescue work and our prime focus is to change animal cruelty laws in Canada. For almost 1 year we have been on an anti-declaw campaign.
Declawing is a surgical procedure performed on cats/kittens. It involves 10 separate amputations of the last joint of your cat's "toes. Your cat's claw is not a toenail. It is actually closely adhered to the bone. So closely adhered that to remove the claw, the last bone of your the cat's claw has to be removed. Declawing is not like a manicure. It is cruel and serious surgery; and is considered animal cruelty under Islamic law.
The human equivalent is to cut off our fingers from the knuckle up. Declawing is banned not only in Islamic countries; but in total almost 40 countries. We want to make Canada one of them.
In support of animal kindness in Islam, and members of the Thornclife Park Islamic Community please sign the Adopt Me Canada Petition to help stop cruelty to cats.
