The fur industry wouldn’t be caught dead showing the cruelty behind its hottest collections of fur-bearing fashions. From fur factory farming to trapping, the reality is simple: Fur is beautiful on animals, not on people.
Animals raised for fur spend short, miserable lives in small wire cages, only to be gassed or electrocuted when their pelts are at their prime. In the wild, traps inflict great pain and anguish, both to the target animals and to unintended victims such as pets and endangered species.
HSI is working to ban fur factory farms, end the use of brutal leghold traps, stop the commercial hunting of seals for fur, and improve fur labeling laws. Join us by supporting fur-free designers and help put the business of cruelty to animals out of fashion.
