Check out this list of things you can do to help animals killed for their fur.

1. Don't support it

When compassionate consumers take a stand against the fur industry by refusing to purchase its products, designers will stop using fur, retailers will stop selling it, and fashion writers will stop reporting on it as an acceptable trend. You have that power with every purchase you make. Take a moment to sign our fur-free pledge.

2. Support fur-free retailers and designers

More and more retailers and designers are rejecting animal cruelty and potential consumer deception by adopting fur-free policies. Listed on our fur-free list are those who've announced that they don't sell animal fur or are phasing in a fur-free policy. Please support retailers and designers that have made a commitment to being fur-free.

3. Join the Fur-Free Campaign Facebook page

Keep up on the latest developments and actions to protect animals from the fur trade on our fur-free campaign Facebook page.

4. Send emails and leave online comments thanking companies on our fur-free list, and urging others to join it

Contact retailers or designers who sell fur and let them know that you will not support companies that support cruelty. Then let us know which retailers are selling fur so we can contact them about joining our fur-free list. If you think that the company has a fur-free policy, please ask to have this confirmed in writing and forward correspondence and/or responses to furfree@humanesociety.org.

5. Speak up and educate

Writing letters to the editor to your local newspapers is a great way to get the word out about fur in your community. Another great way to educate others is by leafleting at local clothing retailers that sell animal fur or fur trim.

6. Donate
