Despite knowing about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, Donna Karan has made the cruel decision to use the skins of dead rabbits in her clothing lines.
Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available. Foxes, minks, coyotes, and rabbits—and even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, and often skinned alive for their fur.
One of the best ways that you can help animals who are beaten and tortured for their fur is to tell Donna Karan executives that you’ll boycott the designer’s collections until she stops using fur. Many top designers—including Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne—have chosen to create wonderful work without using animal fur.

DSW Inc. refuses to stop selling shoes made with animal fur, despite the fact that PETA has repeatedly explained to company executives that animals on fur farms live in cramped, filthy conditions before they are bludgeoned, electrocuted, and sometimes even skinned alive. Animals who are trapped in the wild may suffer for days before trappers arrive to crush their chests, stomp on them, or beat them to death.
DSW lags behind other fashion-industry leaders who have dumped fur, such as Foot Locker, Gap Inc., JCPenney, Steve Madden, H&M, and Limited Brands, Inc.
Millions of animals who are cruelly trapped, farmed, and killed for their fur every year around the world, and they need your help now. Please politely write to DSW and demand that it join other top retailers that have dumped fur.
Please send a message to DSW’s CEO, Michael R. MacDonald, and urge him to end DSW’s sale of fur immediately and implement a fur-free policy.

fur belongs on whom it was born
not by the vain and frivolous,
