Stop Today's Shopping Choice (TSC) from Selling Real Rabbit Fur!

Today’s Shopping Choice (also known as The Shopping Channel, or TSC) is selling real rabbit fur products.  They are currently selling a rex rabbit fur coat by Adrienne Landau, which can take up to 35 rabbits to make. The fur is coming from rabbit farms in China, where the fur is often removed while the rabbit is still alive, conscious and fully aware. TSC has issued a statement telling consumers that the Rex rabbit fur is “ethically sourced", and a "by-product of the meat industry”. 1. Ethically sourced fur does not exist. The fur for this coat comes from a fur farm in China. With NO animal welfare laws in China, the caging, transport and killing methods of for these rabbits is abysmal. Routinely, factory-farmed rabbits are crammed together in small and bare wire cages with little space to move. Bone disorders, foot abscesses and vertebral column deformations are common due to the inability to exercise and inadequate housing conditions. Rabbits suffer high levels of stress through being unable to perform natural behaviours. The rabbits are not raised or killed humanely or ethically and are often skinned alive. 2. Rex rabbit fur is NOT a by-product of the meat industry. Meat rabbits are entirely different breeds. Rex rabbits are bred specifically for their fur.  Millions of rabbits are specifically bred and killed on factory farms for their fur because the rabbit fur industry demands the thicker pelt of an older animal for a particular quality fur. Rabbits raised for meat are killed too young, when they still have their unstable infant coats or have begun their subadult moult. Make your voice heard:  Tell Anne Martin-Vachon, President of Today’s Shopping Choice, that fur is not socially acceptable and that you will not be purchasing anything from her company until they discontinue the sale of real fur. Contact TSC at: 1888 2020 888, press "0" for operator.  You can also leave a comment on their FaceBook Page. Let's work together to Make Fur History and end this cruelty. More Info:

Petition to Carleton Univeristy, Dining Services

Expand Dairy Plant-based Alternatives at Carleton University!

***PLEASE STATE IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU ARE A CARLETON STUDENT***  The Canadian Food Guide is currently discussing removing dairy from the food pyramid; as it is becoming increasingly more accepted that it is not a needed component of a healthy diet. All dairy products can easily be replaced with plant-based versions. Carleton Animal Defense is asking that Carleton University provides dairy free plant-based alternatives, for both students and the benefits of the animals which supporting Dairy inflicts harm on. The following is a list outlining products which are being requested: - Plant-based ice creams available to students in the first year dining hall. - Replace butter with dairy-free (vegan) butter and alternatives.  - Have vegan cheese options available.  - Make sure veggie burgers and other faux meats do not contain egg, or dairy so that it is suitable for those on a plant-based diet.  - Have more plant-based dessert options; i.e with replacing the milk with dairy-free alternatives and so forth.   Overall, where it is possible to incorporate more plant-based dairy options we are recommending that it be done.  Students signing below are asking for more plant-based alternatives on campus. ***PLEASE STATE IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU ARE A CARLETON STUDENT*** Find out more information about our organization by clicking here :
