Cat and Dog Fur - Dossier

Posted in Dossier / News of the Week by Glô! on the December 2nd, 2008

The Cat And Dog
Fur Trade

This dossier will focus on the cat and dog fur trade, which is responsible for the killing of more than two million cats and dogs worldwide each year.

Although the following articles in the dossier focus on Dog and Cat fur it should be noted that all animals used for fur or otherwise do suffer and do have their rights violated on a daily basis for human use.

Non-human animals who are considered as “pets” or used for companionship invoke a strong reaction from many human animals but this does not mean that species who are not used for companionship should receive no


attention.
Members of all species should not be considered the property of humans or commodified.
