MACY’S: Label Leather/Faux-Leather & Fur/Faux-Fur Products as “Not from Dog or Cat"

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


“Macy’s 2016 Social Responsibility Report” and the Macy’s Inc. website "Social Responsibility" section, at the time of creation of this petition, state nothing about animal welfare!  In this day and age of rapidly growing, global consumer social consciousness, this is unacceptable!

As a humane consumer and customer or potential customer of Macy's, I sign this petition as a pledge to boycott either 1) all products sold by Macy's or minimally 2) all leather, faux-leather, fur and faux-fur products sold by Macy's that do not clearly indicate on external product labeling, for products sold both online and in-store, that all materials forming the product ARE NOT SOURCED FROM DOG OR CAT and that the product is thus "DOG AND CAT FREE".  The reason for my boycott is that animals processed through "the dog and cat meat trade" SUFFER EXTREME CRUELTY AND ABUSE, with their skin and fur by-products often sold to manufacturers and passed off to unknowing customers, originating from dog and cat meat-eating counties, such as China, Korea and Vietnam.

This trade employs EXTREME ANIMAL CRUELTY, and often involves stolen family pets.  As standard practice, slaughterhouse workers use purposeful torture of dogs and cats, who are highly sentient beings, to tenderize the meat or give it falsely perceived medicinal qualities, selling the skin and fur as by-products of torture.  Dogs and cats are typically abused and tortured, LEGALLY, in the following ways, often through, prolonged or repeat torture sessions consisting of the following ways:

  • Bound alive, with limbs tied together and mouths taped, wired or tied shut to make the torture easy.
  • Blow-torched alive.  Blow-torching does not often kill the dog or cat quickly, and blow-torch sessions can take place over several hours or even days, leaving the animal suffering accumulated burns.
  • Boiled alive.  In a metal pot or cauldron, it can take up to 30 minutes for the dog or cat to die through boiling.  Sometimes animals are boiled, kept alive, beaten, and then boiled alive again.
  • Burned alive.  In fire pits and open ovens, live dogs and cats are speared, held by instruments, such as metal prongs and sticks, and jammed into open fire, where it may take 30 minutes or longer to die.
  • Hung and beaten, or nailed to walls and posts and beaten.
  • Stabbing and sensory organ/genital mutilation.  Dogs and cats are repeatedly stabbed and cut, such as eyes gouged out or genitals cut to cause extreme suffering.

Therefore, I sign this petition as a pledge to boycott either 1) all products sold by Macy's or minimally, 2) all leather, faux-leather, fur and faux-fur products sold by Macy's that do not clearly indicate on external product labeling, for products sold both online and in-store, that all materials forming the product ARE NOT SOURCED FROM DOG OR CAT and that the product is "DOG AND CAT FREE".
