California Residents: Please Urge Governor Newsom to Ban Fur Sales Statewide!

This alert is no longer active, but here for reference. Please read update.

A groundbreaking bill to ban fur sales in California is just one step away from becoming law! This first-of-its-kind legislation could save a countless number of fur-bearing animals from excruciating deaths for “fashion!” AB 44 has passed the State Assembly and Senate, and now awaits Governor Newsom’s signature!

If Assemblywoman Laura Friedman’s bill is signed into law, California would become the first state in the country to prohibit the sale and manufacture of animal fur products, including, but not limited to clothing, handbags, shoes, slippers, hats, or key chains that contain fur. Please urge Governor Newsom to support AB 44 to make fur history in California!

Coyotes, chinchillas, foxes, mink, rabbits, and other fur-bearing animals are subjected to unregulated killing methods which cause unimaginable terror and agony. Animals are gassed, electrocuted, or have their necks broken, while anal or genital electrocution is a common method for killing animals used for fur. Furs from dogs, cats, raccoons, rodents and other animals are often undisclosed or intentionally mislabeled by manufacturers, and fur products are often preserved with carcinogenic chemicals.

San Francisco, Berkeley, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles have all banned fur sales, which reflects a demand for animal-friendly apparel. As one of the country’s most populated and influential states, AB 44 would save millions of defenseless animals from horrific deaths, and would set a precedent for the rest of the country, and perhaps the world, to phase out the use of stolen animal skins simply for fashion.
