If California went fur free, I believe it would lead a great change for other states and countries all over our world. California is one of the most progressive states in the nation. We lead the world in a range of sectors, and are always putting forward cutting-edge policies that establish a more equitable society.  This change would greatly impact myself, my family, and all other animal lovers because animals should never be treated in such a disgusting and callous ways by humans.The fur trade is a brutal, outdated and unnecessary industry that profits off of the inhumane treatment of animals.

If passed, the ban would prohibit the sale and manufacture of products such as clothing, shoes, slippers, hats, handbags, and all other accessories that are made from real animal fur. The people that work in the fashion industry should really look at this as a moment to shift and change how they’re approaching their work. Today, there are so many new materials and alternatives that can be used so there is no need for this brutal industry, and California should not support this cruelty. 

The initiative is spearheaded by the Humane Society of the United States, Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation and Animal Hope in Legislation and supported by an international coalition of animal protection organizations including the Fur Free Alliance. If passed, California will be the first state in the country to ban the cruel and unnecessary fur trade within its borders.

Fur Trade Facts

"Each year, more than 1 billion rabbits and 50 million other animals — including foxes, seals, mink, and raccoon dogs — are raised on fur farms or trapped in the wild and killed for their pelts. Because much of the fur is imported from China and other countries that have poor regulation, it is often mislabeled as "faux". Depending on the size of the garment, 100 animals or more may be killed for a single coat." (LCA)

Farm Conditions

The vast majority of animals killed for fur are raised on farms and kept in deplorable conditions. Mink and foxes are naturally wild animals and do not adapt to life in captivity. Wild mink instinctively range a territory of approximately 741 acres in size. In contrast, ranch-raised mink are confined to a 12” by 18” cage. This type of intensive confinement can result in self-mutilation, cannibalism, and high-level stress that weakens the immune system and makes animals more susceptible to disease."  (LCA)
