Are You Ready For Fur Season?
Mark Your Calendars Today For Fur Free Friday!

Please join IDA and activists worldwide to speak up for fur-bearing animals

Fur Free Friday is the most widely-attended annual demonstration in the history of the animal protection movement. Always occurring simultaneously outside fur-selling retailers on the day after Thanksgiving, fur demo Nordstromone of the busiest shopping days of the year, Fur Free Friday has become an institution for animal advocacy. Don't miss your opportunity to join with thousands of other activists worldwide for this international day of action.

Fur Free Friday 2011 comes on the heels of some good news for fur-bearing animals. Last month, West Hollywood, California became the first city in the U.S. to ban fur sales! This is a historic first step in legislation that could put an end to this cruel practice. “O” Magazine also took an anti-fur stance and will not be displaying fur on their pages. Let’s keep this positive momentum going and make this the best Fur Free Friday yet!

Mark your calendars, contact IDA, and plan now! November 25 will be here before you know it, and we must raise our voices in unison to educate shoppers and the media about the real cost of fur - the cold, brutal fact that more than 50 million fur-bearing animals are slaughtered for fashion each year. Fur bunnyThis number doesn't even reflect the estimated billion rabbits killed annually for their skins, because laws in some places including France, where over 70 million rabbits are killed each year, falsely label the much more valuable fur a "by-product" of the meat industry.

Whether on fur farms, where these helpless animals go insane from the cramped, filthy conditions, or in the wild where they are trapped and left to suffer, these animals need your help now.

If you live near a Nordstrom store, we have specific Nordstrom literature, as we are asking them to be the first department store to go fur-free. Please consider targeting a Nordstrom store if you have one in your area. Click here to see a list of stores in the U.S.
