Protest /Banning Dog & Cat fur importing into Canada

Event: Ban Dog and Cat Fur in Canada! Every year over 2 million dogs and cats are killed for their fur in China Usually raised on breeding farms but also kept tethered outside of family dwellings, these animals endure cramping, severe weather conditions and are often deprived of food and water. Family pets are also stolen. The Canadian government has been importing Chinese furs for years, most of which arrive in this country unlabeled. There are no labeling laws for fur in Canada! Cat and dog fur is easily dyed to resemble other species. It is mostly used as trim for coats, gloves, boots and even trinkets and cat toys! If you wear fur or fur trimmed clothing, it could very well be a cat or dog! Tell your friends! Say NO to fur and stop supporting this horrific trade! Please join us to educate the public and collect signatures to urge our government to ban the import of cat and dog fur once and for all!
