"Faux" Fur is really dog fur

Tuesday Feb 27, 2007 09:03:00 AM

My mom has been really, really busy for the past 2 months. I guess you might have heard about the Humane Society testing 25 high fashion fur trimmed coats right before Christmas time - to discover they were either Raccoon Dog or domestic dog fur - and either not labeled - or labeled improperly. All the big name stores were involved - Macy's, Nordstrom's, etc. - J.C.Penney had their employees take the coats off the rack, cross out the fur contents on the label and then put the coats back on the rack and sell to consumers like that!

Mom's been busy on this issue ever since! She's been an activist in the fight to stop the dog and cat fur trade that inhumanely kills over 3,000,000 dogs and cats each year (5,400 daily in China alone) for the fur trade industry.
You can join the fight too by signing the petition and then contacting your Congressman to tell him you're against this inhumane and barbaric torture as well. There's a bill that has been introduced to the Congress (last year's attempt got stuck in a subcommittee) and we all want to see the loopholes closed and this horrible killing of dogs and cats (skinned alive) for their fur coats.

Here's the URL for the petition:

No More Fur Lies

And if you don't know about what's going on in this issue, she's done tons of research and you can find it all here at our website:
