Why the FTC ruling matters

The United States’ Federal Trade Commission recently ruled against three major retailers for selling real fur labelled as ‘faux.’ Raccon-Dog-GFDL

It’s a huge victory for everyone in the fight against fur and Ralph Henry, deputy director of Animal Protection Litigation for the Humane Society of the United States framed that point perfectly.

“There is an epidemic of false advertising in the fur industry,” Henry said in an online release. “Raccoon dog fur sold as faux fur and other advertising and labeling problems have been deceiving consumers for years.”

The battle for a fur-free Canada will continue, just as it does in the United States with the work of the HSUS. With your help, the Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Defenders won’t stop until we win.
