Fur-Free NYC is a coalition of not-for-profit charities working to prohibit the sale of fur in New York City
Worldwide, over 100 million animals are abused and killed for their fur every year. Whether raised on fur-farms or trapped from the wild, fur-bearing animals including: foxes, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, beavers, otters, dogs, cats, and raccoon dogs, have unimaginable cruelty inflicted upon them by the fur industry.
As consumers become more aware of how animals are violently abused and killed for their fur, they are seeking to buy clothing, shoes, and accessories that are as ethically produced as they are functional and stylish. That is why designers, retailers, cities, and countries around the world are joining together in banning the sale of fur and shutting down fur farms. In the past 18 months, Chanel, Phillip Lim, Jean Paul Gaultier, Coach, Burberry, Gucci, Michael Kors, and more, have all banned fur. Here in the US, the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco have recently banned the sale and manufacturing of fur, while cities and countries across Europe and Asia are doing the same.
It’s clear that fur is cruel and a relic of the past. Together, we can make New York City fur-free.
