Shocking Dog's Fur

Millions of dogs and cats are being bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and strangled with wire nooses so that their fur can be turned into trim and trinkets.

The dogs fur is used in a variety of products, including coats, fur trimmed garments, hoods, hats, gloves, stuffed animals, blankets, toys, fur pom poms on sweaters and trim on jeans etc, childrens dyed hair bows and items such as novelty key rings and hair accessories

This slaughter is so unconscionable that the industry has tried to obscure the truth with purposely misleading labels. Dog and cat products are rarely labeled as such. Many companies and individuals involved in the trade of dog and cat fur use fraudulent terms and deliberate mislabeling, or use made up names of creatures that don't exist. Even dyed in bright colours to appear to be "fox fur" or fur from other species to disguise the true identity of their products.
