Did You Know?
DOMESTIC CAT & DOG FUR COULD BE THE TRIM ON YOUR JACKET
Cats and dogs are killed without mercy for the skin on their bodies so their fur can be made into products for the fashion industry. The majority of fur-trimmed items (even trinkets) labeled as “faux fur” or “synthetic” may be real fur… mostly from cats and dogs.
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, LOYAL COMPANION, PROTECTOR
Would you say those qualities describe your pet?
While you’re home sharing special time with your beloved companion, imagine the many imprisoned in terror and pain awaiting a tragic death for the sake of fashion.
This shocking truth is very hard to take, but imagine your dog or cat taken from you, only to face a barbaric and unspeakably cruel death by the hands of soulless perpetrators. These innocent animals watch their fellow cage mates as they are brutally killed in front of their innocent eyes, in utter terror knowing they will be next.
This is the reality of over 50 MILLION defenseless animals every year, coldly and callously killed for the skin on their bodies – many domestic animals still with collars on, stolen from their owners.
THE COST OF FASHION
We cannot hope to make a difference through apathy. Closing our eyes will not make this atrocity go away – it will only serve to empower this horrific industry.
The people of the Occupy Movement have taken a stand against injustice. We must also take a stand for the innocents, for they cannot take a stand for themselves. They can only hope in their hearts that someone will care enough to save them.
This barbaric industry needs to be shut down and the CALL TO ACTION is NOW.
The POWER is in OUR HEARTS
“We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole of which these are, the shining parts, is the soul.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
