Activists at last year's Fur Free Friday!

Activists at last year's Fur Free Friday!

Last night the City Council of West Hollywood passed a historic ordinance unanimously prohibiting the sale of fur apparel products within the city!  This great success culminated after months of canvassing and rallies spearheaded by the Fur-Free West Hollywood Campaign made up of activists from In Defense of Animals, Last Chance for Animals, Animal Alliance, PETA, OCPA, ARME, APRL and many hard-working individuals, most notably Ellen Lavinthal, Ed Bucks, Shannon Keith and Bryan Monell. Several stores in West Hollywood had voluntarily removed fur items from their stores prior to the City Council’s actions.

In 1989, West Hollywood passed resolution number 558 proclaiming West Hollywood a “cruelty free zone for animals”.   Since that time West Hollywood has passed legislation banning the declawing of cats, prohibiting pet stores from selling puppy mill animals and resolutions banning cosmetic testing on animals and steel-jaw leg hold traps.  In February of 2001 they adopted IDA’s guardian language which substitutes the word “guardian” for “owner“ in all discourse.

West Hollywood is the first city in the United States banning the cruel commerce of fur.  It is a remarkable historic  victory.

Want to help animals killed for their fur in your city? Click here for some ideas on what you can do!

This year’s Fur Free Friday is right around the corner. Click here to see what activists from around the world did last year and start planning your own events soon… more details on that coming soon!

Btw Occupy Wall Street has some pro animals points in its official statement. So the revolution might include animals after all.

    PETA is a joke, why any body listens to them is beyond me. they are full of hypocrites. They /stage/ videos of animals getting beaten and abused. They kill more animals that could easily find homes than shelters. They also believe that everyone (including pets) should be vegans, and all pets should be released out into the wild. They fund home-grown terrorists that blow up medical testing facilities…I’m sure I’m missing other things they do, but why anyone would happily put that they support PETA or that PETA has done good… is beyond me.

    Now on to fur:

    Also, maybe some of you don’t know where most fur comes from. They come from fur farms, now if you are in a business of selling quality pelts, the animals would be given a good quality food, and they wouldn’t be abused, because a quality pelt can’t be gotten from a beat animal. Also most places that I have researched or heard about gas the animals and it is a quick painless death, that they don’t see coming. Is fur trapping still big in the US? I haven’t heard much about it but I know fur farms are… and they are humane, they aren’t taken from the wild they are bred to be fur animals, and then their bodies are donated. One Mink farm actually donated the bodies of their minks to my school so we could direct them for A&P, I have to say those minks were well taken care of, they had plenty of fat and muscle on their bones, none had signs of abuse )aka no muscle bruising or broken bones)

    Everything that Hollywood has banned I agree with, fur though… just makes me laugh.

I would that all the world would respect all life and hold each life as priceless and worth compassion & care. Thank you West Hollywood for setting a pace for others to follow. The Asian countries are the worst to mistreat animals in horrific ways How I wish we could show the world to hold China, Korea, Philippians, Veit Nam and all such cruel Asian countries their wicked methods they use on dogs cats and other animals. They are so barbaric, savage and heartless monsters! No sense of compassion to the animals they torture and kill so as to eat their dead bodies. I hate Asian countries.

Far too much cruelty is allowed under the name of *freedom.* What about the right of animal’s to live free from the whims of heartless humans. It makes no sense that society has the right to destroy animals for profit, but can be cited for destroying animals for malicious purposes.

    A new Pro Bass Shop just opened in my area, a perfect example of a profit-driven business promoting killing of animals as a fun, joyful, relaxing and entertaining activity–unbelievable! The sign of a society living their indoctrination–just a bunch of sheeple.

    This is a real big hope for the future, that for me means that people are maybe understanding and realising more than they thought so, they are finally opening they eyes and heart.

    We have to never forget that animals have been created, as us, by the same god and there is a reason why they are living on this planet with us as well.

    We need to give them respect as they do with us.
