    A startling investigation shows that 80 percent of jackets mislabeled as faux fur contain raccoon dog fur (learn more). U.S. law prohibits the import and sale of dog and cat fur products – but the law does not protect raccoon dogs, nor does it require labeling products...

    Did You....

    Know that in order to make a chinchilla coat they have to kill dozens of them? And that they get their fur while they are still alive so in other words they know when they are skinned alive and suffer a hell of a lot. But wait they have a more ethical way to do it they...

    What's the Point!

    Honestly! Does harming a defensless or even semi defensless creature actually bring pride to someone! Most of these people are skinning them and throwing the rest in the trash! We have fabrics that are just as warm and faux products feel just the same. Why not be satisfied we the...

    Conspicuous Consumption.

    People eat meat for the following reasons: culture, nutrition, practicality and tradition.  So even though I am an animal rights supporter, I can understand why people eat meat. People in affluent societies have no reason whatsoever for wearing fur.  Leather is...

    Wear Your Own Skin!!

    I want to make one thing perfectly clear, wearing fur does NOT make you seem, cool, and it does NOT show off the fact that you are rich. Its not like fur is made from animals that died of natual causes, thats still bad anyways, animals are skinned alive for their fur, even...

    I Can't See Why People Think It's Ok!?

    I just don't get how people think it's okay to wear and buy fur, they may as well be killing the animal themselves. I have heard people say "well I didn't kill it" NO maybe not but if people didn't buy it then there wouldn't be a market for it, therefore people wouldn't...

    Abirtion Is Murder Fur Isn't.

    Most fur comes from farmed animals raised to be humanely sacrificed. Like when we eat a beef or chicken. Whereas, innocent unborn children are slaughtered through abortion because someone conveniently "forgot" to take the pill or use a condom. Abortion is murder.
