What can I do to help put a stop to the cruelty in the fur industry?

You can help by speaking with the managers of any stores selling fur and fur trim and letting them know that you won’t be shopping there until they get fur off the racks. Set up an information table outside a store selling fur or on a busy street. We can send you posters and leaflets to use. Let fur-wearers know how you feel about animal cruelty, and have leaflets on hand to educate them about it.

PETA also has anti-fur buttons available that you can use to adorn your cruelty-free bag or nonfur coat. Writing letters to the editors of your local newspapers about the cruelty of fur can affect countless people.

There’s also a wonderful, upbeat video called The Witness (available at www.TribeofHeart.org), a very effective and moving educational tool on the subject of fur, that you can show friends or have shown at a local library, college, or church.
