For animals caged on fur farms, caught in steel traps or skinned alive, fur is cruel and brutal. Whether it’s a fur coat, a fur trim or fur lining—it’s still a dead animal. And why would anyone want to drape the lifeless skin of a dead animal over their shoulders? It’s so easy to dress your best in faux-liciously fluffy fake fur, why wouldn’t you?
Fur Farms Are Factory Farms
lmost all fur in Australia is imported from Europe, the US and Asia, where animals killed for their fur are caught from the wild in painful traps and even more are locked in tiny cages on fur factory farms.
Severe confinement sends many animals insane and drives some even to self mutilation. Foxes, raccoons and other generally solitary animals find the tiny crowded spaces especially stressful, to the point that some cannabalise their cage mates.

Fur is Pain
While some foolishly see fur as a status symbol of elegance and dignity, what they don’t realize is that the animals who died for that clothing died in the most brutal and undignified ways imaginable. For their fur animals may be:
* anally or vaginally electrocuted
* skinned alive
* or beaten to death.
Animals may be killed by anal or vaginal electrocution, a most painful and terrifying death.
Fur is a Deadly Trap
Wild animals caught for their fur have their bodies crushed in bone-breaking traps. They can spend days in agonising pain, slowly bleeding or starving to death before the trapper returns to take their skin.
Wild animals caught in bone-breaking traps can be left to languish for days during which some may starve to death. Others may attempt to gnaw at their limbs in a desperate attempt to escape.
Would You Wear Your Pet?
In Asia, millions of dogs and cats are killed for their fur. While it is illegal to import dog and cat fur to Australia, some of these furs are mislabeled, for example as fox or mink, and are imported to countries like Australia and the US. Most of the fur trims and trinkets in Australia are made from rabbits who were brutally killed and skinned for their fur in China.
A Shocking Look at Chinese Fur Farms
hina is the biggest fur producer in the world — with no laws to protect animals. Millions of animals suffer in the most horrific ways imaginable on Chinese fur farms as this shocking undercover video shows…
Go Faux Yourself!
Fur coats, fur trims and fur trinkets all mean suffering and death for animals. With so much fake fur available, going faux is so easy that there’s no excuse not to. And you can feel warm and fuzzy not just on the outside but also on the inside, knowing that no animals died for your killer looks!
Help Make Fur History in Israel!
Our furry friends might soon be in for a big win. Israel is on the verge of becoming the first country to completely ban fur. On 2nd September Israel will vote on whether to ban the production, import and export of fur. And the animals need you to show your support!
The ban would be great news for dogs, cats, rabbits, minks, foxes, raccoons and other animals killed for their fur. Thank goodness!
The reality behind fur is cold and ugly. Barren cages, overcrowding, no exercise, boredom and a brutal death are what’s in store for animals in fur farms. And those trapped from the wild don’t get it much better. They are often caught in bone breaking traps and can suffer for days in terrible pain and without food or water before someone comes to check the trap.
The animals need all the support they can get to achieve this important victory! The Israeli government is now coming under huge pressure from the fur industry to reject the proposed ban. Please help send a message to Israel that the world would warmly welcome their ban on fur.
