Portland, Oregon Residents: Help Make Portland the Next Great City to Ban Fur!

Portland, Oregon Residents: Help Make Portland the Next Great City to Ban Fur!

After California’s groundbreaking ban of fur sales statewide, and after many citywide bans, we are now working to make Portland, Oregon the next great city to ban fur! Now is the time to take action to save animals from being tortured and killed for “fashion.” Contact your city officials today and join us as we work to create a #FurFreePDX! 

To produce a fur jacket, trim or accessory, fur-bearing animals are held hostage on fur farms, where they are deprived of space, socialization, and everything wild animals need to thrive. To preserve their coats, animals are often anally or vaginally electrocuted, which kills them from the inside out. The onlooking animals wait in terror for their turn, and the brutal process continues.

The inherently cruel fur industry is on its last legs. Designers from all over the world, including Gucci, Prada, and Michael Kors, have pledged to ditch fur. Giant retailers including Macy’s, Inc. and Bloomingdales, have also announced that animal fur will no longer be sold at its stores or online in 2021.
