FUR TRADE

Humane Society International continues to be committed to highlighting the cruel and inhumane practices of the fur industry. Fur farms kill millions of animals, including cats and dogs, each year and there are no laws to protect them from intolerable cruelty and an inhumane death. But the future is looking more and more like it is going to be fur-free. One by one, major fashion labels are announcing they are ditching the fur for their future collections including Gucci, Michael Kors and Versace. HSI is delighted to see that Australia's two biggest department stores, Myer and David Jones, have continued to keep fur off their racks, maintaining their promise to support fur free fashion.
