On animal fur factory farms around the world, millions of rabbits, foxes, mink, chinchillas and raccoon dogs spend their entire lives in cramped cages, deprived of the ability to engage in natural behaviors—only to be crudely gassed or electrocuted at the end. In the wild, animals are caught in crippling leghold traps for days without food or water. These archaic traps are indiscriminate, often maiming and killing non-target animals, like threatened species and even pets—all of this in the name of fashion. With your support, we are leading the fight to pass laws and secure corporate commitments on this critical issue. Together, we can create a fur-free future.
The Humane Society of the United States has tried to work with Dillard’s on the fur issue for over a decade. It is needlessly cruel and a bad business decision.
Consumers’ concern for animal welfare is leading fashion brands, cities and countries to move away from coats with fur. Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Coach, Burberry, Versace, Michael Kors, Armani and InStyle magazine are just some of the companies that have announced fur-free policies. In 2019, California became the first state in the nation to ban fur sales and in 2021, Israel became the first country. Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, United Kingdom and many other countries have banned fur production. It’s clear that this unnecessary cruelty has no future in fashion.
