Ann Taylor Drops Fur for Good

January 2005

After PETA was alerted to fur-trimmed items for sale in Ann Taylor stores, we fired off a letter to the company explaining why fur is cruel and asking that it pledge not to sell fur in the future. In a wonderful victory for animals, Ann Taylor has decided to eliminate all its fur products by fall 2006, thanks to pressure from PETA.

This national retailer of upscale women’s clothing has more than 700 stores in 45 states.  Because of Ann Taylor’s compassionate decision, countless lives will be saved.
