Bring attention to the US government about fur farming conditions

Fur farming is defined as the practice of breeding and raising animals for their fur. Fur farms are large areas of cages where fur farming is done. The conditions of these fur farms are not humane enough for the animals in them. The United States government seems to ignore the fact that fur farming is still an issue.
One of the worst places for animal suffering is fur farms. These animals receive neglect and contract diseases. Their lives consist of cramped, filthy cages and an untimely demise of the cheapest, most efficient methods. These methods include electrocution, gas, suffocation, and poison. Animals are not allowed to do things they'd normally do in the wild, such as roam and swim. Instead, they're kept in close cages with hundreds of others and their feces and urine. Just because these animals have warm, soft fur doesn't mean they deserve to die before they're a year old in these conditions.
Bringing this issue into the government's attention could result in some major changes for the industry such as adding more restrictions, using more enforcement, or ending it all together in the United States. For instance, Austria, Croatia, England, and Wales has banned fur farming within their boarders, the Netherlands has banned the production of Fox and Chinchilla fur, and New Zealand, Sweden, and Switzerland have strict regulations. Why doesn't the U.S. fall under one of these categories?
Animals don’t deserve this abuse. Animals are innocent and
should be treated as such. They never intentionally do anything to intentionally harm humans so why is it okay to mistreat them like this?
