Our organization, The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals, is the oldest animal protection group in Canada, and our mandate is to protect fur-bearing animals.
Right now, we have a campaign to ban the import and sale of dog and cat fur in Canada.
Each year, an estimated two million dogs and cats are brutally slaughtered for their fur. Their skins are used to make trim on coats, toys, hats and figurines.
Countries including the USA, and the entire European Union, have banned dog and cat fur, but sadly it is still legal in Canada.
This trade is something that I think your readers would be keen to know about especially because the USA has banned this atrocious act and there is a federal election in May in Canada.
