PETA - Cats and dogs are being killed for their fur
Thousands of dogs, cats, rabbits, raccoons, and other animals are facing a violent death at Chinese animal markets, where they will be stripped of their skin-- often while still conscious. Won't you help stop the suffering of these and all animals slaughtered by the fur trade today? Donate now! Dear Anne,

It's the shameful secret that those in the international fur trade do their best to hide.

Cats and dogs in China—more than 2 million individual animals this year alone—will be killed for their fur. Animals like the ones we share our homes with as beloved family members are being routinely abused and slaughtered for their fur.

This cold fact has been witnessed repeatedly by investigators from PETA Asia and independent animal protection organizations around the world.

PETA is leading the campaign against the bloody fur industry. Please support our efforts today with a special gift to bolster this lifesaving work.

The animals suffering in these markets can't tell their own story, so I'll relay to you just some of what PETA Asia investigators have documented:

"Workers stuffed hundreds of terrified animals into cages to make the trip to the Chinese animal markets. No food or water was provided."

"The cages were packed so full that the animals couldn't move inside. And dying or dead animals were packed in with the living."

"When they arrived at the market, the cages were tossed 10 feet from the tops of the trucks to ground below, shattering the bones of the fearful animals inside."

"At the market, the killing methods used shocked even our most seasoned investigators—bludgeoning and even skinning the animals while they were still alive!"

All these horrors take place so that someone can have a fur coat or fur trim on a hat. It's outrageous and must be stopped.

The skins of these animals find their way to the international clothing retail markets, including the U.S., and are sometimes misleadingly labeled as anything from "Asian jackal" to "rabbit."

I know that it's hard to read about this cruelty. But I want you to know how you can be a part of ending this misery—by supporting PETA's work to save these and other animals from being abused in the name of a violent, greedy industry built on suffering. Please send a special gift to help fund PETA's ongoing campaign against the fur trade.

We're leading eye-opening campaigns against retailers and designers who still use fur, and we've convinced many to eliminate fur and exotic skins from their collections. We hold protests and educate the media and the public about the ugly truth behind the fur industry.

Of course, ending this cruel killing of animals will require a sustained and monumental effort. But we're up to the task and hope that you will stand with us. With your special gift today, you'll help PETA continue to fight against this suffering and abuse. And you'll help us tell the world that animal skins are not fashion.

Thank you for everything that you do for animals.

Kind regards,

Ingrid E. Newkirk

P.S. The more than 2 million cats and dogs slaughtered for their fur each year in China can't tell their own story. But that's why PETA is here—to work to end this cruelty and abuse perpetrated out of greed. Please join with us to end the bloody fur trade. Thank you!
