Buying into animal cruelty

More than 110 million animals are killed on fur farms worldwide every year.

Denied their natural behaviours, the chronic deprivation and extreme confinement of these intelligent, feeling animals causes them mental and physical damage.

The fur industry claims that methods of killing are quick and humane, but the reality is a different story.

Despite legislation banning fur farming, items made of real fur can still be sold in countries prohibiting this cruel practice, including the UK.

Consumers who would never wear fur are being duped by its cheap cost and lack of labelling, with some faux fur products even being found to contain real fur.
